Whether Studying Can make you Rich?
12 Feb 10
Oldies believe that you should have higher education to attain good job. If you have good marks and good education, big companies will be likely to accept you. And i think its totally true especially in Indonesia. (and i think it happens in Singapore as well) You won't be accepted with perfect experience but just high school graduate. But with a bit of experience but a master degree graduate.. it's like giving candies to small kids. They will definitely accept you to work and of course with high salary. Experience comes second or third in this case. So, with higher education, you will get better job. with better job, you can find money easy. but it doesn't make you rich. Rich comes from successful entrepreneurs.

studying doesn't make you rich. being entrepreneur only also can't make you rich. You will need to have the skills and experience to become rich. Studying will add your skill while working will add experiences. Then you apply both in establishing your own business, most likely you will be successful

Well education will not promises you became rich, even for the fact i know some one who can't even read, has a lot of money from his work as a motorcycle dealer ( although at first when he said he can't read i though it only a job ). That man start from scratch and able to become success. But that kind of person is maybe not much in the world. Most people that i know not finishing high school or college usually having a hard time in this country. Some of them even end up being a criminal. Though education and degree doesn't promised you much money, but it do provide you with the skill and the tools for making money. In the end, it all depend on your self. Whether you are able to use that skill and tools that you got from the school. Thanks.

Thanks for agreeing with me. Yes, education and degree is one of many tools that could help us getting rich. But don't forget about prayer too. If we work hard, study hard, pray hard, then it all now in the God Hand. Anyway nice discussion you make here my friend.

hi! Yes, I think this is a very good advise and many parents give it to their children, because they know, that when a man studies, it is easier for him to find agood and good paid job, because everywhere in every company they are searching for specialists, who have a lot of experience or at least a good diploma from some university or college, but university is better!

Well good education will grant you a good job in the future. While still studying, you can always offer some paid tutoring for other students, who can't study well on their own. I've offered such service for a couple of times and I think it's a really good way to earn some extra money.

i don't doubt it, but its not 100% right. i mean, if you study hard til graduated from college or even magister and doctoral you will get rich with knowlegde. if you want to get rich with wealth, having a lot of money, only studying is not enough. we have to 'work' harder. take all changes, take some risk, learning from anything. we often see an uneducational person could be a rich person, they don't school, but they work hard.

I don't think so .Because it depend upon the way you study .Because every body can study but only few apply it in their .What I am trying to say is most of the people just study they don't know how to apply it in their real time work.So what ever we should understand them fully then only we can do our work best that leads you to earn more.Some people just memorise what they study and they clear the Exam even they score more marks when they come real time work they struggle a lot .To earn more money we should have application knowledge. That is we should know how to apply with analytical and logical skills .Some people work for a long time and they never had growth in their work the reason is they just do what is taught to them.But when we see the people who shine in their work they have all the knowledge about the full process of their work. So just by studying we cannot earn more. we have to work hard as well as smart to growth in our work.
