Looking back on college, I didn’t learn anything. I learned how to party and get into trouble but you don’t get credit for that.
Here’s some wisdom to enlighten you.
1) College doesn’t teach you to think for yourself
Here’s what thinking for yourself is: realizing that 4 million people turn 18 every year and 2 million jobs created in 2016. It doesn’t take a degree in quantum physics to understand, there’s not a surplus of jobs waiting for you.
Instead you’re fed an expensive lie.
Here’s another math problem for you…
Calculate the total number of jobs created under any president. Now calculate the number of people that turned 18 during that time.
You’re on your own.
2) College doesn’t teach you to be your own boss
College teaches you to aim for a job when you should be aiming for freedom. “Job this job that” will be hammered into your brain.
Stop and think about the word “job” for just a second. 9-5. Two days off. One week vacation. Horrible boss. People you hate. And this is a “good job.” Sounds like a scam to me!

If you’re going to get a job, you might as well be in a foreign country with beautiful scenery.
3) College doesn’t teach you to write
Think about your first experience writing… What word or feeling comes to mind?
Torture. Pain. Boredom. Tedious — are a few I think of. I suspect many are in the same boat.
Think about it. You’re minding your business and then all of sudden, you have to compose a 3-page summary of a book you don’t care about, stretched out over thousands of words. They say first impression are everything. Getting introduced to writing this way, will turn you OFF.
More people would enjoy writing if you’re first exposure is, “Hey if you blog you can make money. Blogging is writing after all.”
Blogging taught me more about writing than any college course on writing. Books on copywriting, persuasion, and psychology are a great start.
4) College doesn’t introduce you to enough books
Off the top of my head, the only books my professors made us read were, The Laws of Power, a philosophy book, and that’s about it.
Books will level up your mind. It’s a shame that college’s want you to read some boring textbook you have to pay hundreds of dollars for. With that money you could buy yourself a better collection of books by real authors.
5) College doesn’t teach you about style
Style is persuasion and persuasion is style.
You don’t need science to understand that attractive people are better liked, more popular, and get more attention.
Looking your best is a form of persuasion.
Yet, when I look around me, every dude-bro looks the exact same. These are people who don’t understand persuasion or the power of having a look or style.
If you want to be more persuasive, right now, today — update your wardrobe and hit the gym. If you already have muscles don’t skimp out on your wardrobe.

6) College doesn’t teach you about money
If you knew anything about money, you sure wouldn’t spend it on college. Ask yourself, why does tuition keeps getting higher and higher, but you don’t seem to be getting smarter and smarter?
If you follow the money you will see, the administration just gets richer and richer.
So what’s the solution?
College teaches you to aim for a job.
Ambition teaches you to aim for freedom. So start building.
Build a blog. Build a business. Build connections. Build your mind. Build something of value. Build yourself. And realize the game never ends.
