Basic education. Yes, it is a necessity in today's world.

But what makes the difference between a successful and an average person is the belief in his/her dreams.

The reason I say this is simple. Degree and colleges have originated in the last few decades. They haven't existed since always, and yet we have been living on the great inventions and findings of people who truly have tried to achieve their dreams. !

And mind it, not many of them had a college degree either. !

Hello friends in my point of view the every educated person is not educated. The person who employ his knowledge in her life he is educated. He is successful in both world. Now a days we think the educated person is that who have good job who have high percentage in his degree who have know the usage of modern technology.

OH my friends now a days terrorist is also have high percentage in his degree they know the usage of technology. Can we say they are educated ?no they aren't. They have knowledge but they don't know who they use their knowledge in good or right way. So the educated person is that who differentiation b/w right or wrong way.

Good evening everyone.

I thought that education is very important to become a successful person in a very small time, if you don't have any education also you will become successful person. But it will take more time. Education will give you different idea, and creativity to do work. It will increase your talent. It will help you to get new inventions and it will help you to get good future. So according to my view education is needed to every person. I will not prefer examination but education is necessary for every person.

Thank you.

Hi friends,

We know that education is need us, because it is help us in every achievement. So education is very impotent for us so that we can know any way quickly.

But, if we talk to success that what is success, success is a achievement for us and success is divided in many way so, if we want to success in our life than we gather some requirement according to success so that we can get success easily.

So education is not required for achieving every success.

But education is help us in every field so it is very impotent for us.

Thank's Guys.

Gone are those days when there was less competition and vast opportunity, people succeed even they did not go to school and earned huge money, now the situation change and there is vast competition at every step. So I think first try to get settled and assure your bread, but same time don't forget hard work and your honesty and work will take you to highest. Of-course education is important and try to increase as much you can.

Education is very important in helping us determine and shape our future. It does give us an upper hand over those who haven't been much in school but without more effort we are no different.

I am very sure that even without education, each one of us would still find a way to survive and actually thrive. It's not all about the information you have which you have obtained from school, rather it's the knowledge and ability to implement and apply some of life's golden principles of success.

The word education itself needs to be changed and given a better meaning. Every time one speaks of education, what comes to mind is school. Is there no education without going to school? AND ACTUALLY WHAT IS A SCHOOL? WHAT IS IT'S PURPOSE? if the question and debate on education is to be answered, we need to find answers to the basic questions on what education really is.

Hi Friends, I believe some of us are here today because we do not see a strong correlation between education and success. The current educational system is a suppressor of creativity with it's strict grading systems and mandatory electives. For me to get a bachelor degree after getting my GED. I had sit through 40 classes and read about 32,000(40*400)*2 pages, toke over 300 tests and received a large amount of brain damage only to have enjoyed a few classes. I would say most of the 32, 000 pages that I have read were not related to what I wanted to specialize in.

One possible solution to making "success" a product of education is to allow students to specialize into their field at an early stage of their life, like after high school. I think by placing less emphasis on grading and more on real life experience students will be able to become more creative and successful individuals. No one should ever have to go through two years of irrelevant classes to get to take one or two relevant classes. I believe if Bill Gates had gone through a formal education he would have not been as successful, he would have gotten a severe amount of brain damage and he would have lost his focus and become a 9-5 zombie worker.

Good education= Good. You can be successful and happy with good education.

No good education = Also good. You can still be successful by using the skills and the talents you have. For example, if you have talent in art and craft or cooking, you can start your own business. If you think you can do better after attending training and classes, then do so. Take some classes, make yourself better and you will become more successful than before. Hopefully through word of mouth your business will grow and walla, a brighter future right before you.

I don't think that education is really that Important to a lot of us. Personally, I'd like to be a musician. I'm in middle school, and I already own a band. But that's besides the point. Why should I CARE what the nucleus of a cell is and what it does to maintain my body status? Why can't I just let it be and move on with my life? Why do I CARE what happened in 1842? Why can't I believe in looking to the future instead of dwelling on the past? Of course, there are the exceptions of if you want to be a teacher, scientist, historian, etc. But is it really that important to the rest of us? I don't think so.

I believe that a regular school education is NOT needed to be remotely successful. That is if you want to be rich. Nowadays traditional education targets on how to find a "safe" and "secure" job. But you must ask yourself do you really want this for yourself? Today schools are grooming their students to work to make an individual or a corporation rather than doing that for themselves. Or in a simplified version, why work for a major company when you can OWN that company. These are the things school do not teach and probably never will. Traditional teaching teaches nothing about assets or investments. Only be a slave to your job and money in an everlasting cycle called the "rat race of life" as Robert Kiyosaki calls it. So yes if you measure success by being a slave to your "job" then an education at traditional school is PERFECT for you.

Now, if you want to be successful and control money rather than it controlling you then very useful classes will be investing, real estate, stock market, etc. Classes. These are skills used by many successful people. But then again it is the road less traveled by and harder but the reward is far greater than having a job. The choice is up to you and your profession to see if traditional education is needed for success.

Let me raise my mind here: EDUCATION is not about going to school and participate in class activities ONLY; There are other means of EDUCATING. It is TRUE that Nobody has succeeded in Life without proper Education. For an example: what ever one is doing to improve his/her life needs knowledge and understanding. Question: How can one gets Knowledge and Understanding without being taught or self-taught? We have confined ourselves by telling us that education is found in certain places.

Someone can teach you to be a good fool or barbarian; there too one can reap the results of such education he received.

Our Culture as different as it is, has its education; it remains with us how positively or negatively do we use the education. Those who use it wisely are generally successful in life.

It is a matter of Choice in which one's success is Based on what kind of education one has received: Education from school, University, college, work, mentored, culture, self-taught, online etc.

There are many advantage of education such as using education to educate to the people to know with each other. Although, education is still so weak in some country in the world; especially, it has happened in developing country. But, education is allow to improve human resource who fill of knowledge in there. So I think we should improve the education in the world to get the best human resource.

Education is necessary, but there many who succeed their lives without education. There are other areas like sports, music, dance and etc. In my view successful person is the one who is known to the world as good. The best example is Sachin Tendulkar. He received the prestigious award Bharata Ratna. This example tells us that not only education leads us to success but also there are some other areas, which have to be focused along with education.

Education is inferior to real-life work experience and training. Education will not equip you with the practical, actual skills a job entails. A month of on-job training will teach you more about that job than all your college courses combined. 8 years of work experience in a field will always beat 8 years of schooling. These are the facts, people. The very institution of education should be banned altogether; and societies as a whole should start creating vocational institutions that teach realistic skills and trades--things that people actually need to get jobs and to survive, not a bag of theoretical knowledge and information from textbooks.

In my view education means which lead us to our destiny. We need true education. It is one's perception how he/she takes it. Education lead us to develop or destruct, when head and heart is added to education can surely be take us to be successful. For example, a weapon is given to you to protect ourselves but we can use that weapon to protect ourselves or can use for destruction.

Well to all of the people above. Primarily to read and write founds the basic of someone's life. So primary education is much needed. It provides better exposure to a dynamic range of knowledge. But once the education "ignites the fire" why not let ppl do what they want rather than looking for academic accomplishments. Bill Gates (Willam Henry 3rd) is a great example. He got to Harvard but dropped out simply because he wanted to create software. Tho he was a brilliant kid (gr8 at maths). So, what I try to say that education as the sole measure of somebody's competitive nature is just no good. We should have more flexibility in acceptance.

An educated person is seen more respectfully compared to an illiterate person in society. An educated person can be identified easily at one glance. He or she has some etiquette. As here many person said that Diru bai ambani, Sachin Tendulakar are not highly educated and they get success in life but still they have a basic education and yes. Diru bai ambani don't give jobs and opportunity to uneducated and less educated person. His staff is highly educated. And luck works when you have something in you and that something is come through education.

So education is must. I agree with all persons. Education is very important in every human life. The education is to improve the our personal and maritual status. Some people are not to be educated but they intency is to reached the their goals. I am agree with those person who is sporting to education but I am disagree with those person who is not sporting to education. My opinion is that education is very important for every one without education we cannot do anything if we want to become success full person so we should do study.

Educated person have a different life style. They have knowledge about everything they know about our rights. If you want to make your place if you want to reach good place so you need to education. We should try to learn more and more. Everyone have right to get education and we cannot spoil the right. We should send to our daughter in school. We should not keep differ between boy and girl.

For example: a farmer is not educated enough, although if he gets proper price for his crop, then he can consider himself successful. Got It?

Dhiru bhai ambani is another example in front of us. Was he educated? NO. Was he successful? YES.

We can reach success without it also but we have to work hard or try till we reach our goal or success. If we take the lives of some scientists we can know that many of them are the failures in their education, but they earned a lot of success in their lives.

Education has become an integral part of one's life just like food, shelter. Education is must to achieve success. But education doesn't mean getting 80 % marks or getting high ranks, the real education is what skills you have acquired through out your life be it technical, analytic, social skills etc. To be a successful person we need to implement whatever we have learned in our life and to learn from the experiences. Implement part shouldn't be missing if one wants to be achieve success.

For example The problem India is facing that skill level of most of the people does not match with the industry level. There is a big communication gap. Which is a big reason of unemployment in our country. Means we have degree under our belt but we don't have adequate knowledge and skills to get a good job.

Education not only means that getting through our schooling and getting a degree from a college or from a university.

I would like to give my points in favor of the topic. Education has become a basic need of everyone's life. It is a key to success. The proper education does not mean dealing with just theoretical concepts but its more about applying them properly. It gives a ground where person is well acquainted with right thing and wrong thing. An educated person perceive everything from all corners and it is difficult to manipulate those persons.

To name a few, that is "GOD'S FEAR, RESPECT FOR ELDERS". If education goes along with these kinds of basic, fundamental family respectful values, I am sure all sections of the society irrespective of caste, age, gender can lead a happy, peaceful, contended life.

Thank you all for your great contributions. Education is defined as experiencing life lessons that provide an understanding of something or a process of acquiring knowledge about something. Education plays a vital role indeed in a person's life. Behind every successful person, there is education and this is so because there is no person here on earth who can succeed in anything without learning and acquiring the necessary knowledge about that thing. For example, a businessman will need to learn certain skills that will help him to run his business and this learning of skills is what is called education. Talking of a talent, one needs certain skills and knowledge in order to improve his talent. This is evident enough to see that education is found in all areas of life and no one can avoid it.

Education is something which helps you in making the decision that what is right and what is wrong or in other words what should we do and what should we not do. So from this definition it is clear that everyone would require education to be successful in the life.

Because what we do in our whole we make the decision only for example if we buy something then we think that how much we should buy and what to buy? etc. This is a very small thing if we talk about the life of a businessman, he has to make decisions daily. So without education no one can survive in this world.

So have the education as much you can to be successful.

LEGAL EDUCATION=knowing something about everything & knowing everything about something. This has said it all, to be really successful in life we need to FOCUS=follow one course until successful. To do that you need relevant education on that particular course both formal & informal, experience, passion, & a well planned goal both short term & long term. We all need the basic form of education in life because if you don't have it you won't be able to see an opportunity when it comes, you won't even be able to read all this comprehensively.

Education is the key to every successful man. For a man to improve in life he must have at least a knowledge of reading and writing which made him an literate man. Reputation they say is only awarded to a man who is unique enough of his natural way of doing things. Education should be given to every child because the world today is growing to the extent without education, you cannot speak.

Education from books and self education play a role in being successful, but it all depends on whether you are learning what you need to know. The truth is, experience is a better teacher than education, and experience will give you the platform of what you need to learn. But to start on the road of success, you need a bit of education. For example can have all the knowledge Bill Gates has, but without experience in the field or if you are illiterate (fail to communicate or put your point across) , you wouldn't venture far enough to be successful and people would probably take advantage of you.

Most of the comments here are pretty spot on, on how much we need education. So I'll just add on by asking "if you need to do something to be successful, how do you do that something without the know how?".

First of all we all need to know what education actually means. There are basically two types education.

1. The education we get from learning books.

2. The self education.

Both the education have their different aspects but in my opinion the self education is more important than the education we get from the books. The self education is the education we learn from our environment, society. We learnt how to behave, how to respect, how to handle relations, how to live actually. These things are not mentioned in any book.

But I don't say that knowledge got from studying books are not important, they also play a very crucial role in our life. For a normal human being to get a good job in any multinational company must have a degree in his hand and the only way to get the degree is to study the things given in the books. The things given in the book should be used as a secondary source to go ahead in life. These things are written by qualified and highly educated and dignified persons.

So my opinion education is a must for every individual to get success in life.

All they have a particular achievements in particular activities but not in studies.

According to my point of view for being a successful person. A person must be enrich with various qualities such as.

-> Determination.
-> Objective or goal of life.
-> Dream in his mind.
-> Interest in a particular field.

Last but not least EDUCATION.

Education plays a vital role to achieve our goal or to be successful person in life.

It is necessary in our life but not at all compulsory. I do agree that we must have a common knowledge regarding "How to interact with others", " How to respect Women".

Education helps us in each and every phase of life to grow and develop.

I would like to conclude by making my point that Education is a + factor which help the person to grow and be successful in life.

By education man has there own identification. As in beginning we learn how we interact with others?

1) We learn to respect the world (specially women's).
2) We learn to respect our parents.
3) We get positive potential.
4) We learn to live the life in the right way.
5) We learn sharing and helping others.

So first we get the education of life after that all the other issues of education. If we learn the concept of life we will indirectly go towards success. (hard working, luck is the another part of life).

In marketing our education not help us to achieve goal an get success here 1) Our potential means how many customer we can face.

2) Second is that our talent means how we can present our product.

3) And most important thing is that how we communicate with consumer.

4) How we can maintain relationship as long as with consumer.

These all things we can get only by experience not by education. So likewise in not most cases but only in some cases education is not important.

Education is of two different kinds.

We have true-education, which is self-learning.
We have School-education, which is Book-learning.

Now basically, You must understand that book learning alone will never make you successful, if it were to be so, People who are well learned in school would have attained the best positions in life. We have evident of people with self-learning (true education) that have owned corporations that most people work in today.

Read the story of Thomas Alvin Edison (he had only 3 months of formal education) , Henry Ford (had little schooling too) , Bill Gates (who had to drop out to pursue his dream child, Microsoft) , Mark Zuckerberg (who also has to drop out to pursue his dream child).

What they teach in the four walls of a school tends to put us into a mediocre state. There is a seed of greatness in every man, the school does not teach that. It teaches the students what they really can't use in Real life.

But if you study the lives of people who have gone before you. Read books, study biographies, what you have just done is that you have simply added more wisdom that you can use on a daily basis.

Most good students don't know squat about how to fend for themselves, except waiting on a corporation to hire them and help them settle for a future, unknown to them.

Today, we know there is no more financial security. The more you tend to delay your self-education, the more you are bracing up to become a dependent in your old-age to a system that is daily collapsing.

True education can only be achieved in printed materials, not in school, not watching Television or playing Video Games, but in Studying, learning and then awakening the sleeping giant inside of you.

(By the way, I am educated. So don't think I hate education).

When we know the method of doing something than we can do it. Furthermore in earlier years human used to live in forest there was no difference between human and animal. Slowly that world changed to this modern world because of what?

Education, now we know who are we, and what were we,

Hi friends,

I came across this topic while skimming this site and I thought of sharing some of my ideas. Education is a tool that is used to bring out the potential tapped inside oneself. Education is vital. But what level of education one need depends on one's mental talent. For Bill Gates 17 years of school education was enough to bring out his talents and start the business. However he needs 1000s of educated graduates to sustain in the field. One thing that we all should accept is that the literacy rate has increased in our generation when compared to our parents generation. This itself is enough to say that the illiterate people have realized the value of education, its importance and made it to a point to educate his or her children so they can achieve the success without many huddles that they faced.

So as we look for knowledge, education is not the only source today. On the other hand, seeing the education system in India we can't actually say that education makes man successful. However, its actually a wrong thought that knowledge can be gained only by education! Yes, if we are provided with quality education, I can say that we really need education to become successful. Also if we are educated we will have a minimal knowledge of something, thereby becoming a little successful, so we are not losing anything by education.

Hello friends,

I read many of your views and I really appreciate them. But are we really educated? Well, when we get a degree in any field, we feel our selves to be educated but for me it is just being literate. According to me, learning is called education when we understand its values and try to make it practical. Friends, I am still in 9th and being in high school when I look back at my past years I feel what have I really learnt in in these years. Have I really educated myself and the answer I get is, unfortunately, a NO. Neither schools nor colleges nor universities ever care a darn for us. Do they take an initiative to make us better person? Your degrees would never help you to become socially active as people do judge you according to your diligence and values not on your degrees. Education today has become a competition where your mugging capacity counts not your talents. What use of that 'education' that cannot give you pleasures and satisfaction? Is this all we yearn for. Is this success.

Well! Technically. Education could be of two types-.

1. Theoretical.

2. Practical.

The combination of these two types will lead to ultimate succes.

Education is important!i agree, but not unless you have experienced that education by applying in your daily life or any other field. We all get education in schools, graduation, post graduation, . But success comes to that person who experienced that education practically. There are many stories which say that though they are educated but still unemployed, the reason is in some way or the other they are lacking in practical knowledge.

If you have practical experience in any field, and then you go for interview, you will see the difference, the answers will come spontaneously from your inner side.

But decline in any of the two types may leave you behind. So,

Get theory, apply it in practical use and become professional!

Helo friends, I just stumbled on this forum and all I can say is wow and thanks for your great contributions its really cool. Anyways, in my own opinion we have to know the definitions of 'Education' and 'Success'. Education is not a process of acquiring big degrees or certificates, but rather a process of learning, sharpening our skills, bettering our lives and being able to discern or know the difference between good and bad. While Success on the other hand also is not about holding one high office or another, or owning a fat bank account or ledger, but in being content with what one owns because content is the law of nature. Since life is about learning, living is an educational proccess. And a contented and well lived life is a success. Therefore, education is neccessary for success. Thanks.

Education is the key to success for everybody. Both for physical and spiritual success we need education. Let me start by defining the meaning of education. Education is the redirection of soul from abysmal darkness to light. Had not been for education the world would have teared apart, we should have live like animals in the bush who have no respect class, no sense of right and wrong. The world should have been a jungle were only the strong survive. Education is needed for spiritual propose.

There is way you can read the Bible and the Qur'an without being educated. Education make the world a simple place to live. It play significant role in the life of every successful person. Guys are saying that uneducated person can be successful. Well, I want to tell them that for every uneducated successful person there are lot of educated people behind his or her success.

Now a days so many educated persons read their subject but not apply subject knowledge. Perhaps, when we ask what is the applying system of Charles law to a state first ranker group tests. We know that he con`t tell because he only study the lesson but not it convert their real life. In this situation he was educated but no use to his education.

While consider another person he didn't study an books and didn't go to school. But he was a great farmer or any type of worker who will it possible. Hence they understand their work who it will better to work.

According to me, Education is needed to be successful in life. In-fact education is a path to success. It can be seen as a ladder to reach a destination called success. If we see in our community all the people carry out their study to be educated and in turn to be successful in life. Yes, at the same time there are few exceptions. For example, dheeru bhai ambani, Sachin and Laloo yadav to name a few but these people also had their basic education and can be considered as exceptions who tasted success at a very high speed than others but for most of the common people it is the education only which leads to proper growth of a person and be successful.

Education is not the scale of measuring someone. Successful person are those who have dedicated mind, sound knowledge, helping attitude towards family, nations as well as the world.

Yes according to my outlook, what I consider. We can't relate to each other to success and education. Because a uneducated person can also get success. And education is only a medium of it. And foremost thing is that for get success we need to do deeds. For that its not important that you are a educated person or not. "successful person don't do different things but they do differently. ".

Education is not the only way for our success in the life. It is one of the medium only. All the literates are not succeed in their life and in the same way all the illiterates are not failures. In my opinion success depends on the will power and attitude of a particular being and not on the education. Some persons may have skills in other activities like singing and playing sports e. T. C. , for example Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambir, Vishwanadhan anand, A. Are Rehman e. T. C. , are well known because of their achievements in the particular activities not in studies. So Education is also one of the important knowledge gaining process in the world.

Thank you.
