Does Failure In School Mean Failure In Life?

Most people believe that those who weren't too brilliant especially in their secondary school days, end up being under achievers in life. What's your view on this sterotype. Does it mean that one cannot be successful in life without having a good degree?

i must say that what u think is what u are. being an educated fellow does not mean u are wise i.e u may not have being in school and understand what life entail and u may have the degrees or all the certificate in the best schools in the world without having a vision. all it takes to be what u want is to be focu and determined.

No way!

I actively deal with young people. Some do well in academia, but not in otherareas. Others are totally incapable of dealing with education, but are fantastic in other areas.

Having said that, education is an opportunity that should be taken (if you have the priviledge).

You can be successful without a degree. But I think secondary school is very

crucial because to me, everyone has to know how to read, add, you know, the basic

education.

But you don't have to attend a higher institution to be successful, not at all.

One key to success in life is to have a skill or "gift" in which you can use to get

a job or provide a service to make money.

For instance, If you are born with a special gift of music as is the case with michael jackson,

then you can make a good living for yourself.

Sade51 said something about knowledge and i really liked that idea.In life,one needs to read his brain and not ur book.Even those guys who colonized us dont often go to institution.They do da what they know how to do best.So i think failure in schooln does not mean failure in life.

It depends on how the victim of such sees it, but i really don't think so. You just have to believe in yourself.

it is our mindset that is the problem.Education doesn't guarantee success in life it only gives u a broader perspective about life. anyway everybody is not meant to go to school. it is all about doing what u are interesting in ,which is in line with ur gift because the wise book says the gift of a man makes way for him. as in it gives him a headway.

A good example is okocha, but he is a success now in his line of endeavour. it just take one to discover oneself, be passionate about anything one lays is hand on, focus and determination

Ford said "Failure is the opportunity to start all over again more intelligently".

The wright brothers failed not the first time not the 2nd time but several times.did these made them fialures or inventors?

Abraham lincoln failed when trying to contest but still he never give up.I always believe that some people were born lucky they always get it the first time but some have to try a little harder. But that didnt show u are weak or any less intelligent than people that got it the first time, no not at all.You just need to try harder and i believe it made you stronger and more determined.

that is what they teach high school kids so they will obey their teachers and parents and study hard,

While education is a key to surviving in a competitive society, it is however not a failure for someone who did not go to school. It has its obstruction so in general, people are adviced to get their degree before anything else so u can have a fore sight

I dont think so because some people are not too good in Math, English, or any other school subjects but if you give them a broken computer or broke down car they can work wonders. It basicaly depends on how well you use you assets or talents. But that doesnt mean that you shouldnt try to do well in school because education in most cases is the key to success.

I dn't believe dat crap. It aint true. If u fail an exam, that doesn't mean u r a failure in life, u only become a failure when u fail to plan. Whenever u fall/fail, pick something n stand up. If at first u don't succed, dust urself up and try again. Many of d big names we've got didn't go thru school completely, Bill Gate s an example.
