Education successful people
In the heads of Russian people there is still a stereotype about the importance of higher education. In fact, in 2019, higher education means practically nothing for employers. Practical skills, a developed portfolio or a client base are much higher valued. And at the interview, instead of a diploma, you will be asked to complete a test building, and in case of failure, the color of your crust will be unimportant.
The fact that higher education is useless, no one says. Of course, obtaining higher education in Russia in universities provides a variety of knowledge applicable to life. Getting a higher education, the student will learn ingenuity, oratory and writing, following deadlines and other important everyday skills. But in fact, these experts in many areas do without a diploma.
It must be said that even in the USSR the lack of a higher education diploma did not prevent people from becoming successful. The most commonplace example is the famous Soviet space pilot Yuri Gagarin. He received a diploma only on the end of the SPU in the specialty "molder-caster", and after a few years flew into space and became famous throughout the world.
By the way, the creator of the conveyor system and the most reliable cars in the world - Henry Ford also did not have a higher education. But there was a desire to learn and develop independently. His main principle in the bot was that you need to reach everything with your mind, without the help of a dry theory.
One of the sources of motivation for many successful people is poor childhood. The founder of Inditex Group, Amancio Ortega, aged 13, observed the situation as the grocery store salesman refuses to give his mother products in debt. A few years after this incident, Amancio had already founded his first company. His university has become his profession.
The famous Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich also has no higher education. He tried to study at the university, but he quickly got tired of it. Doing business turned out to be much more interesting and profitable for him.
One of the members of the Board of Directors of Tinkoff Bank, Oleg Tinkov, chose the same path. He entered the Leningrad Mining Institute and even graduated from it 2.5 courses. At the 3rd year he decided that it was more beneficial to engage in speculation than getting a higher education. And, as it turned out, did not lose. A year later he opened his first company for the sale of electrical engineering.
In fact, all these people are united not by the lack of higher education. They are similar in that they knew how to listen to themselves and to follow the call of their heart. If you feel that higher education can help you in the future, you like to study and devote yourself to science, then feel free to go to college. But if you understand that your admission to an institution of higher education is a desire rather than your parents or your closest associates, it is worth considering. Perhaps self-education and practical activities will be able to give you more than theoretical knowledge gained at a university in Russia.
