When I was in 11th class I bought “You Can Win” by Shiv Khera. In the book he has mentioned that the contribution of academics to success is just 15%.
At that point of time I believed it is academics that matters the most.
Let’s do an analysis.
Your academic life is till the age of at max 25 (if you pursue post graduation).
-How many people became super successful by 25?
Very very few.
If you will look at people who are doing well in their early 20s are those who had started working for single skill as early as 8-14 years.
So, they nailed success in their early 20s.
By the age of 25 most people get a job & remain doing same till they retire.
They don’t self-learn. They don’t start anything new. They are not self-motivated. They do not take risks. They lack the confidence to start something new. They are afraid to walk out of the crowd. So, the result is that they end up doing jobs they don’t like. Jobs that sucks.
If success in life were the result of academics then most well educated people would have been super-successful. But that doesn’t happen in real life.
》At 25: It’s just the beginning
Many people deemed to be average started working hard after their graduation & they changed the course of their destiny.
They get ahead of everybody & reach to the top.
The reason is that 25 is the age when you have good command over language. You can read & learn whatever you wish to.
Most successful people are those who just applied their learnings in real-life.
So, don’t worry if you are 25. It’s the right time to take the leap. It’s the time when most people stagnate in life. It’s you who has to change everything for yourself.
