University Graduated = Success??
According to the author – BIG FAT LIE! You need real world skill, capacities and the right mindset to succeed in the real world.
The definition of success define by author as “Maximize chances of professional success in any economic circumstances. Education is NOT equal to academic excellence.
We are constantly ranging our-self form safety to heroism, people love “known” more than “unknown” and people love to stay in old status. We constantly facing 2 path, one is the risk path, the down side is “ALL IN”, the other is a safe path, which the down side is “What if”.
What is a decision before we make one? Decision mean cut off / kill, kill off other option or other through, to decide to go the path we want. “What risk are you taking by not making decision? “

Overall I think it’s a constant debate between street smart and book smart, we see success and failure in both group. So that means? Going to Uni or Quitting Uni is not the key of whether u can success or not – but the action you take after you make the decision. Do you like a leaf in the wind or you work your ass off to move towards your goal? Knowledge no matter where you learn is knowledge, however even you got the best knowledge in the world if you just lock it into the drawer is still useless. Apply it, make mistake, laugh at yourself and build your own empire!
