See what the world’s most successful dropouts think about education. Several are illiterate. Re-evaluate your opinion on learning, knowledge, and success by seeing Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Jack Ma, Robert De Niro, Larry Ellison, Bill Gates, Charlie Munger, Beatrix Potter, Chris Dawson who can’t write, Micheal Dell, Felix Dennis, Peter Thiel, Thomas Edison, Robert Kiyosaki, Richard Branson and others – reveal their views on the school system and learning.
THREE EXCEPTIONS are included because of their extraordinarily similar educational insights: Warren Buffett wanted to drop out but didn't due to parental pressure. Dolf de Roos (university did nothing for his success - explained in the clip) and Peter Thiel, who has invested very successfully with dropouts Elon Musk and Zuckerberg and has a foundation which encourages people to drop out for the right reasons. Whether you are deciding the value of university, higher education, college, or dropping out to start a business, gain employment or self-education; or deciding to home school your child, send them to school; or trying to open the mind of your partner to think different about the education and success of your children, this video will provide real food for thought. There are many more billionaires and millionaires who did not go to school, college or university, but I hope at the current video length, the point is made sufficiently that the viewer will not be able to say “oh it is just a random few.
” One more interesting fact: Adjusting for inflation, John Rockerfeller is the world’s richest man of the recent century. He left school at 16 to be an assistant bookkeeper. Thank you for watching. If you have any suggestions or reactions, please leave your comments.
