“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going. ” Last night I sat in my room and wondered, what does it take to be successful, so, I made lists of all the required qualities and then, I made one more, for all that’s needed to have an excellent academic performance and guess what?! They were Just the same, hard work, consistency, determination, focus. So, isn’t it obvious that our qualifications are an indicator of our potential success?! But then, some you may disagree. I can understand.
Success means different things to different people well, I an assure you, regardless of how you define success, having excellent qualifications is the primary and major step you need to take in order to succeed. Now, you must be wondering “how can she say this? Hasn’t she heard of Mr.. Bill gates or Mr.. Neared Mod’, a tea peddler who went on to become our Pm, they didn’t have a formal education”well, firstly, There may be a few people like Bill Gates and others who have made it, in spite of their drop-out background and lack of academic qualifications, but can this be generalized?
Let me ask you, will you ask your child to leave schooling cause if Bill Gates can do it, so can they? A few exceptions cannot be taken as a general rule. As a matter of fact, 73. 4% of highlights dropouts suffered depression and some of them even turned suicidal. Reason? They couldn’t make It big In life, couldn’t get Jobs due to lack of qualification. And in case any of you are still thinking about dropping out and becoming a billionaire, let me tell you, High school graduates on an average earn 8580 RSI. Ore per week than high school dropouts. And as far as Mr.. Mood is concerned, If you think he lacks qualification and Just took this giant pea from selling tea to solving national crisis. WAKE UP! He got his Masters degree From Gujarat University In 1983. Focuses, the media wouldn’t tell you that, the tea peddler story sells more, right? Academic qualifications may not be enough on their own to ensure success, but they indicate that their possessor has got what It takes.
Imagine a new world order In education, where people don’t study but Join their business or look for Jobs straight from school, with no qualifications to prove their worth. How would employers choose between them? Academic grades are Important, because In order to gain good exam readers or a degree, students have to work hard, master demanding skills and learn a great deal of specialist knowledge.
These are valuable attributes for success In any field of endeavourer, which Is why employers value academic qualifications. Simply getting Into a good college Indicates to a future employer that the student Is out of the ordinary. Performance matters but In order to perform, you need a Job first. And what do we need to get a Job? Any guesses? Qualifications, so, go on and give It your best shot, It may look hard but “Sometimes there’s not a better way. Sometimes there’s only the hard way. ”
