In order to achieve your goals, you have to work hard for it, there’s no changing that. People who have the money choose the most prestigious schools in an attempt to “secure” their future. Others count on luck or connection to get ahead. And most of us count the desire to be wealthy as the driving force behind our hard work.
Unfortunately, we hold on to these misconceptions about abundance and wealth and treat them as truths because that is what we were brought up to believe. Although it is true that a good college education can increase your chances of having a successful life, there are other factors to help you reach your dreams. Moreover, you cannot simply rely on luck to dictate how your life goes. Instead, you should take control of things and decide how successful your future can be.
To illustrate, Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg dropped out of college and initially, people close to him thought he’d never live out his full potential because he ruined his chances of success after he stopped going to school. Then he made what could be the most groundbreaking social networking site in the world! Many others did not have enough to go to college but still became successful.
The lack of formal education does not mean you are bound to live a life of poverty. It does not mean that you cannot get a high-paying job for an established company to help you become financially stable. You can also do this if you know how to maximize your innate skills that many corporations value. A college degree is indeed a useful tool in getting a job. But it is not the only thing that can lead to your success.
We need to let go of these limiting beliefs that have been traditionally accepted by our society for so long. These widespread misconceptions are what keep us from achieving our true potentials. We end up keeping jobs we are not passionate about and enduring long working hours and missing the chance to spend time with our families. We are so focused on working hard to make a living that we forget how it feels to be truly alive.
Despite the continuous increase in jobs and advancement of technologies, many are still earning only enough to get by. Inspite of working two jobs, most people are still unable to live a life of abundance. This is why there is a steady growth in the number of people with stress-related diseases. People are also experiencing mental and emotional distress. SO how do you solve such problems?
Education is the key. This is not the same education that is being taught in schools and universities today. Clearly, the existing educational system is unsuccessful in providing us useful information we need to survive life. The education necessary is to teach us about real-life principles we can use to create a life of success.
We need to learn about the true principles that can teach us who and what we are meant to be. This will allow us to know the correct type of beliefs and know that there is no limit to the amount of success we can attain. We have unlimited potential to become great and be absolutely happy. All we have to do is to change our beliefs and be what we were meant to be.
