Self Education Will Make You a Fortune
Thank you Henry for sharing some Jim Rohn with us: “Formal education will make you a living. Self education will make you a fortune.
For the last 5 blog posts I have made, we have been discussing self education (specifically Financial Education). As we are in “Final Approach”, we have to be prepared 100% to bring this big bird in for a perfect landing.
I know you have heard the saying: “Colleges are there to train College Professors”. But, what about the ones that get their Degrees and do not stay to teach as a Professor? Isn’t that the real purpose of the College Degree Programs? Actually, it works both ways. You need a continuous line of Professor replacements so they can continue the school for the purposes of training the “new employees” of the future.
Formal Education is designed to train people to become employees. Is formal education sufficient to do the job? (You get to answer that one yourself while we move onward!) Here’s a thought:
If Formal Education has been around for more than a century and a vast number of the companies that formal education trains employees for did not exist even 1/2 of that time, then how did those businesses get started????
Self Education is the means to pave the roads into the future. There has to be a connection between formal education and self education. Formal education is the mechanism for the training of employees to work the jobs of the Industrial Era. Self Education is the mechanism to create the jobs.
SELF EDUCATION WILL MAKE YOU A FORTUNE
When Robert Kiyosaki was 9 years old, Rich Dad asked him: “Which side of the table do you want to be on?”
If you haven’t read: Rich Dad Poor Dad, by Robert Kiyosaki, may I suggest this for good night time reading (and business mindset training). When Robert was 9 years old, Rich Dad had him sit at the table with him while a line of people would parade in, sit down and interview to come and work for him (for wages). One day while Robert was sitting there waiting for the next interview, Rich Dad asked him: “Which side of the table do you want to be on?”
By this, he was asking a 9 year old to make a decision whether he wanted to work for wages the rest of his life or if he wanted to remain on “his” side of the table supplying the jobs.
From the moment we found Henry James Banayat quote on Face Book from Jim Rohn, we knew this was a topic that everyone needs right now that is involved with Compumatriax.
Now, the question for you to answer is: Which side of the table do you want to be on?
