If you don’t agree, go stick your head in the SAND and take a DEEP BREATH!
You have all heard about Bill Gates, a multi-millionaire or more precise a billionaire that changed the world. Recently he held a speech at a High School about the eleven things that the young generation will not do or learn in school. He concentrates in his speech on the concept of feel-good, politically correct teachings which has created a generation of children with no sense of reality which inevitably sets them up for failure in the real world.
Carefully read his words and if you wish you can hang it on the wall of your child to look upon it and trying to understand and digest his wise words. You can either love or hate him, but for sure he will leave an impact on you of what he is talking about.
Rule 1: Life is not fair – get used to it!
Rule 2: The real world is not interested about your self-esteem. It actually expects from you to achieve something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3: Making $60,000 a year right out of high school is impossible. Being a vice-president with a car phone will not be possible till you earn both.
Rule 4: You may think now that your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5: Do not undermine jobs like flipping burgers. In fact your grandparents used a different word for burger flipping, opportunity.
Rule 6: Messing up is your own mistake, your parents have nothing to do with that, so don’t whine about them, but actually learn something from them.
Rule 7: Your parents were not boring before you were born as they seem to you now. They have become like that from paying your bills, washing your clothes and listening to you talking about how cool you are. Therefore, prior saving the rain-forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8: Your school may have given you many chances to set things right, and to give the right answer, but life DOES NOT. In fact some schools have abolished failing grades thus offering you as MANY TIMES as you need for the right answer. *This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9: The real life is not divided into semesters. You don’t have summers off and very few employers or none are interested in helping you to FIND YOURSELF. The common sentence is: “Do that on your own time.”
Rule 10: TV is NOT real life. In real life, people have to leave the coffee shop and go to work.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. There are high chances that you will end up working for one.
You may find these words extremely strong, but in 99% in real life they are true. So, if you agree with all this, pass it on for your fellows to read it as well.
