You Don’t Need A University Degree To Become Rich Because…

November 15, 2019 26 By Stanley Isaacs


In the year 2008 when I was divorcing school,
one popular advice my family members gave me was, “You see, you need to get your first
degree before you can decide to do anything else.” Some people told me, “Without degrees, nobody
will respect you.” In my country, certificates and degrees are
big deals. If you decided not to have degrees, then,
everyone would be crying to get you to see how your future isn’t safe. I thought something was wrong with this mindset
and I wanted to prove them wrong. I believed that real-life accomplishments
are what would make people respect me and not the degrees. I was right. About 8 years after I left school, I had my
first breakthrough in business. It stopped to matter whether I have a degree
or not. Today, I have university graduates working
for me and most of them don’t even know whether I went to school or I have a Ph.D.
In today’s video, I’m going to show you how you can be rich, even if you don’t have any
degree. If you’re new here, consider subscribing so
that you won’t miss other interesting videos like this. Now, here is the thing; becoming rich is like
driving a car. You do need to learn and practice how to drive
a car but you don’t need a university degree to do that. Maybe the above analogy is oversimplified. Here is another analogy; speaking a foreign
language. Yes, learning to speak a foreign language
is very difficult, but again, you don’t need a degree to do it. Becoming rich is not easy but school even
makes it more difficult because the more time you spend in school, the more difficult it
becomes to be wealthy and I’ll explain that. You see, regardless of where you school in
the world, nobody teaches you anything about how to make money. As if that is not enough headache, if you
school in a poor country, you might end up spending too many years to get a single degree
and if you school in a rich country like America, well, your case may even be worse because
you might leave school with an unbelievable amount in college loan. The two cases above are evil against young
people. First, spending too much time in school, learning
nothing about money is evil and getting out of school with $70,000 college debt is evil. Learning a language and making money
I think making money is like learning a new language. You don’t need a university degree to speak
a new language. Instead, the three things you need are; your
willingness to learn, a book or teacher to teach you and the speaker of that language
to speak with. If you can get all of the above three ingredients,
then, you can learn any language without going to a university. Now when it comes to money, the three things
you need are; your willingness and determination to get rich, the education about wealth and
having a few people who as well want to be rich as your friends. With these three ingredients, you can be rich,
even if you dropped out of high school. Willingness to be rich
Almost every human being wants to be rich. But don’t confuse wishes with desire. Wishes are weak. Desire is an obsession. When I decided to become rich, I read every
book I could ever find about money. When I said, every book, I’m not exaggerating. I read every single book I could ever find
about money. I read any newspaper article I could find
about money. I chose my friend carefully, so I didn’t make
friends with the people who don’t want to be rich. I dreamed of becoming rich, read up to 50
books every year, mostly about money and discuss with my friends about money. You know what I’m talking about. I am talking about obsession, curiosity and
strong desire. I thought all days about how I could turn
some things, anything to money and I took every possible action I could. When I failed, I cried and went back to the
battlefield. I mean, you know what I am talking here and
that’s willingness. However, today when I meet people who tell
me that they want to be rich, what I see in them is the opposite of who I was when I wanted
to be rich. For example, I have friends who want to be
rich but they never read a single book about money. Believe me, I’m telling you the truth. I have friends who are 33 and 35 years old
and they never read any meaningful books about money. Some of them who mistakenly read a few books
about money make all sorts of excuses. If you make an excuse, I know that you’re
not willing to do that thing you make excuse about. It’s that simple! Here is the thing; when something is important
enough, people don’t think about the obstacles in their ways. I once read a story of an old woman who found
her grandchild under a car in an accident. This woman was over 70 years old and there
she was, looking at her grandchild dying under a car. The woman put together all strength in her,
held the car and with a superman spirit, the woman pushed away from the car on top of her
grandchild. After some time, this woman looked at the
car and she couldn’t believe that she pushed away that car. Yes, that woman didn’t push away that car. Her superman spirit did it. You see, this old woman could have stayed
there and made an excuse, but the matter at that point was too important and too urgent
for her to waste a second. When people make excuses about whatever reason
why they cannot be rich, it’s because they don’t have a strong desire that should make
them forget every excuse. Do you want to be rich? Close your eye every night and imagine what
it means to never worry about money. Then wake up each morning to be obsessed with
the idea of getting rich. Read everything you can find about money,
discussed money and business ideas with your friends, spouse, and relatives and be willing
to take action whenever you discover an idea, even if you’re not sure it could succeed. Speaking a foreign language with native speakers
As I shared with you earlier, one of the fastest ways to learn how to speak a foreign language
is to speak that language with the native speakers. From my experience, one of the easiest ways
to become successful is to read the stories of the people who have become successful in
the past. Starting as a young adult, I love to read
the stories of successful people. Up till today, I love to read biographies
of the people who have achieved greatness with their lives. As I write the script for this video, I have
on my table the biography of Albert Einstein which I’m planning to read immediately when
I am done with the book I’m reading now. The reason why I find stories of successful
people very inspiring is because when you read the biographies of the people we all
know to be very successful today, often time, you’ll see that these men and women are an
ordinary human being who overcame several obstacles to achieve success. This understanding will help you to believe
in yourself and when a man or woman believes in him or herself, nothing in the world can
stop him or her from becoming successful. And that’s the reason why our team has launched
a new YouTube channel that was designed to share the stories and biographies of the people
who have become successful in life. We call this new channel Fame TV and we promise
you’ll enjoy it as much as you enjoy this video. Kindly, look at the description box to join
other smart people like you who have joined the Fame TV platform. Now let me quickly say this; this video was
not made to discourage you from going to the university. While I don’t have a degree or believe it’s
useful for me, the few years I spent in school helped me to sharpen my leadership and communication
skills because I got involved with school politics. School may be helpful for you too in some
other way but it’s not a place to learn how to be rich. Why you may get as many degrees as you want,
if your primary aim is to become rich, well, it’s like learning a foreign language. You don’t need a degree to learn a foreign
language. Read some books about the language you want
to learn, be willing to learn, practice and make mistakes, be obsessed about that language
and find a few native speakers to speak with. Thank you so much for watching our videos,
If you like to learn about successful people and how they become successful, then we’ve
launched a new channel for you. We call it, Fame TV. Look at the description box to join Fame TV. We Love You.
