I dont think education is the only thing in life.I have seen people who earn more than i do,and whose education qualification is less than me.I realized its not how much you study its how much you can dedicate yourself to a job what is important

Education is not the only important thing in life to get a job.I have seen many finished their degrees in school but still jobless while others who lack qualification because they did not finish their studies is more successful now.I believe we need much luck and determination is needed in order to succeed in life. But still I do believe in education.It is where the stronghold in our life comes.

Education in life is very important! It actually is the only thing!! Schooling on the other hand is a different issue however. We have all heard the stories of people with little to no education making millionaires out of themselves, and they are not as educated as say someone who graduates in the top percentile of their class at Princeton. These people use their life experiences and what they have learned from the world around them to succeed in life. Also you have to consider the people who come up with a product or idea that skyrockets them into fortune. If you are worried about your schooling and why you earn less than someone not as schooled as you it is because you are lacking in education. Talk to them, see what it is that drives them. then look deep within yourself to see if you also posses these same qualities. If you are relying on your schooling to get you by, then I am sorry to say it my friend but you are very sadly mistaken. Here is a quote from one of the greatest thinkers of our time, "How poor is a man that has to pay for his education"

i do not think education is the only thing you need in life to get a job. it all depends on what type of job your going for. some jobs don't really take any education at all. some people can be smart and have a great education but they cant complete simple task. if your a famous actor you don't really need to know alot you learned in school except for how to read so i think it all depends on what kind of job your trying to get.

no. i do not think so. education only give u a headstart but ultimately it still depends a lot on your own efforts and hardworks. i have friends who are doing well and they are not highly educated but they have good business minds. they came out to work in their teens and is now earning at least 20k a month and driving BMW and Merc wherelse i am still driving a toyota and i have a university degree. so education is not necessarily important but rather hardwork and seizing the opportunity when it came knocking to you

No one is going to like me anymore than I do. I have to determine what success is for me. I still don't know what I want to do if I grow up! God Bless and Thanks!

education is not only the solution to get a job..there are much more ways to do a decent earning in life..only in today's world education has become important..there are many people who are dropouts from their school and they have become successful in their life..

I don't think education is the only important thing for a job. It helps a good deal and gives you specific knowledge in a certain field. But experience helps a lot and knowing what you are doing goes a long way. How you treat co-workers and customers is something that employers really look at. Employers want the best person for a job, and sometimes the education gets trumped by experience.

I don't think education is the only important thing in life, however it is getting harder and harder to make a good amount of money without an education. It used to be that hard work could overcome all and you have stories of very successful business men with elementary educations. Now it is impossible to get a truly good job without a high school diploma or GED. Soon it will probably be hard to get a good job without a college degree. All in all it is really sad considering there are a huge number of very intelligent people without college degrees...They have so much potential, but in many industries they are held back.

Depends on what your trying to take up. It is one thing to work towards something that is going to be a help instead of a hindrance. Make sure it will be rewarding and helpful for you down the road.
