"...I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out.

What do you think is the most important thing required for success? A college degree? A Ph.D? Right? Wrong! For success one needs brain, which we all have. If qualification would have been the most important requirement for being successful then why people like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Michael Dell, Richard Branson, Winston Churchill, Walt Disney, Benjamin Franklin, Lady Gaga, Bryan Adams, Taylor Swift, Tom Cruise, Jackie Chan, Anton van Leeuwenhoek, Paulo Coelho, Robert Frost, Jane Austen, etc. have became successful? These people share two common factors; they are immensely successful and they are all school dropouts!

If you ever undermine your potential and ability to realize your dream again, just remember these people, who without any educational qualification changed the way we talk, read, think, listen and enjoy our lives.

Robert T. Kiyosaki says that A-Grade students work for C-Grade students and B-Grade students work for the government. Well, by looking at life, it seems true. Most bright students, the A-Graders, dream of working for companies like Microsoft, Dell, HP, Apple, Virgins, etc. which were all started by C-Grade students! Now, do you think qualification is such an important thing? As Steve Jobs said about his experience in Reed College, “After six months, (of attending Reed College) I couldn't see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out.” And yet, despite being a dropout, he went on to make one of the most valuable companies in the world, Apple Inc. and changed the way the world talk, communicate, watch and listen to music! Did he ever doubt himself of not being qualified? I doubt if he ever did!
