We live in a world where everything can be found on the Internet. That is everything about the richest people and what they do with their kids. I have always been a fan of homeschooling and with today’s world I think it may not be too bad of an idea to let your child go and explore.
This can be done even for people who are older and have already established themselves in their careers. What I have observed among wealthy families is that the children tend to study something like chemical engineering or electrical engineering and double majors are pretty common. Gone are the days when you went to school for something like Latin or history.
From where I came from, I had a lot of people in my life that I distanced myself from because this is the first step. There are always going to be detractors who want to see you fail. And if you fall, then try to fall forward. In my quest to compete against the best in the world, I have fallen hard many times and been ridiculed.
These things can be really painful especially when they come from those that are close to you or those that you love. But pain is usually temporary and what comes after that is a way of thinking that will lead you to eventual success.
At my college graduation ceremony, one of the speakers stated that if you want to achieve something great then you have to give yourself up to loneliness. I realize how true this really is.
It is only by being alone, that you have the freedom to explore and educate yourself in something that you are passionate about. The more you read, the more you know about what you want to do and what direction you want to go.
