Why Studying is NOT enough to Make You Rich and Successful


It’s really easy to understand the reason why studying hard is not enough to make you rich and successful, but the answer is so easy it’s often neglected. Read it here to Learn more.

Studying hard was taught to us as the path to success… or so we thought.

You are probably asking yourself what happened to your life… and probably, maybe, contemplating about the things that made you the way you are right now. If you have read my ebook “Living Successfully in the Philippines”, you’ll know that studying is not just the only way to be successful. You might be in a crossroad right now and you’re thinking whether creating a career from “studying” can make you successful. The easy answer is yes, studying CAN make you successful… but are you really happy with what you chose?

If you want to be successful, you need to stop studying to get a job… you have to do it for financial literacy.

See, the reason why most people do not get successful by just studying, is because they were taught that studying is the only way to success, and the way to success is to get a job. When you graduate and finished your course, you can then apply for the biggest company and hopefully get hired. Sad to say, that often does not happen. When you apply to work, its either other people are qualified than you OR you are not qualified at all. Top if off with experience deficiency and problems with competition, and you got yourself with a series of unemployment – which of course, you try to apply for work again.

Once you got that job, you have to work hard for the company or else risk getting fired. Of course, working hard is beneficial for you and the company, but have you asked yourself… “Who do you really work for?”.

This becomes a question that often becomes branched with “Is studying really the path to success”? If you work for a popular and successful company, then yes, it might be a chance. But you still work for the company, and you are at their mercy especially if you depend on their wage – so when you got into financial trouble, the company will be the last thing that will help you. Also, within this day and age, companies often hire people on a basis of resource but not just quality itself. The reason behind this, is that they could just hire somebody better than you. In the end, you get ditched off or fired… on any reason whatsoever. Does this make you happy? No… of course not. Being fired does and will not make you happy.

This is the vicious cycle that often happens to newly employed or middle aged workers. As an employee too, I know of this fact. That is the reason why I often tell you my fellow readers, that studying is not enough to make you successful. You need to learn to earn somewhere where you will not rely on your company for success. I am not saying to not get to work; actually, I want you to work – but do not ever think that working enough can make you rich. There’s not much enough pay, and the retention of your tenure on work depends on your age. You might not get successful until you even retire. That’s the truth.

The answer is… invest your time learning to be financially stable.

What ever your profession is, you must learn to be financially literate and stable. You will not learn this at work, heck, or even at school. That’s why at a young age, kids must be taught how to learn to be financially literate and create a business (any business) that can make them successful. Because if you start just now because you have spent your time studying in order to get a job, then you might be in for a rude awakening – life is not so cheap that you can afford to live with just a job alone (unless you are a successful doctor or attorney, but then again they also fail.). That’s why studying and getting a job is not enough,  studying for financial literacy can make you successful… and you can start by reading my ebook “Living Successfully in the Philippines” – this ebook will open your intelligence for a higher knowledge of the financial world and how the rich gets rich. It will teach you the ways of being an investor (i.e. stocks, mutual funds…etc) on any way possible – from politics to finances, this ebook will cover it. I assure you, your time and your effort will not be wasted on a dead end job – let alone studying.


Learn well.
