The importance of self education


Your mummy’s not gonna do it for you and the government sure as hell aint gonna do it for you.

So who’s gonna do it?

You’re gonna do it for you.

Now I hope it’s not just me and that I didn’t miss my electives for classes such as Happiness 101, How to be Successful 101 or Entrepreneurial Skills 101. But I don’t remember seeing any of these classes during high school or during my university business degree which is probably because….


Why were they not offered? I’m not sure why? Perhaps the government likes the population dumb and depressed enough so that we can continue to mindlessly spin the cogs in their money-making machines (Remember that business is a two-way street. You need a boss and then you need the individuals that help to make them rich). Or maybe it’s because we as a whole society have still  not grasped onto the idea that perhaps some of the subjects I listed above would be more beneficial than other subjects that inform us of facts such as how many wars Napoleon won or how to multiply Pythagoras theorem by the square root of 200. Save that shit for extra curricular activity.

So who will teach you what you need to become a successful, happy, intelligent, critical thinking human being?….

You will.

This means time to buy a book, watch some YouTube or surf the web on how to increase your motivation, how to be happy or how to be successful.

Just think back to what you actually learnt in school and how useful it was? I think back and I view school as another way to fill my time with bullshit. Pure useless bullshit. If I wanted a lesson in common knowledge I would have bought Trivial Pursuit. Much cheaper and way more time efficient. The shit I learnt in school will not make me happy, successful or rich. Three things that are the key to living a long and happy life. Understanding happiness, how to be successful and how to have enough capital so that you can live safely and free of worry.

So next time you think about a TV reservation, maybe think about expanding your mind and improving your life with some self-education. Because no one else will give it to you.

This guy is an absolute legend.


Here are some great educational books if anyone is interested.


Thanks for reading
