Education is not needed to be successful in life. Take a look at Benjamin Franklin he didn't go to school but he led an army and created the printing press. So I do not believe it is needed.

Education is not necessary for one's success. Furthermore, each and everyone of us is successful or is termed successful in different ways, you can count your success in different aspects of life. But one thing I know, Learned folks theorise a lot and act small.

Hello everyone.

I think education is not necessary to be successful. There are many examples like Akbar, Sachin Tendulkar n many dropouts from schools or colleges. The only thing necessary to get success is hard work or passion. If we are educated or highly educated but we haven't got the passion or strong determination for the work then how can we get success? So education is partially helpfull.

Hello, friends.

I think both plays the important part in our life. Education is also important, without it, we have no idea about what is wrong and what is right. Education always gives the way how to success in our life.

But it is not necessary to educated people is always succeed. They face the failure problem in their life.

According to me, formal education that is taught in educational institutions is not important for being successful. However the education that one acquires from observations and personal experiences is what is the key factor for success. Michael faraday never went to school but his laws are taught. So his input was not termed as education but output is termed so. This shows that there is a need to redefine the term education. If the conventional formal meaning is taken, it has no relation to success. But if we consider golden observations and experience as a person's education then definitely success is directly propotional to this 'education'.

Yes, education is the key to successful as it makes us aware of what is right or wrong. Education is not limited to book. People give most common example that bill gates. Jukerburg all are successful with college dropout. But one cannot define success with money. In my view all those are successful who achieve their desire, goals, target, happily, with good health. True Education also teach us to be unbiased, loyal, kind to every individual.

Hello everyone.

In my opinion, education is not mandatory to be successful. However, education is necessary but success is a different factor for which you need talent and hard work. Akbar was illiterate however he was successful. A farmer has inherited talent of farming and some do the course of farming still that farmer also successful. Education is the path by which everyone who has the willpower to do something can be successful but it should not be for the degree or just to say.

So education is not really needed to be successful.

I Google both words, EDUCATION and SUCCESS to understand their meanings deeply.

EDUCATION is a process of receiving or giving systematic instructions, especially at school or university.

SUCCESS is the attainment of wealth, respect or fame in the society.

When I graph these two words, they tend to have a point of intersection. To be successful, one has to have a goal to accomplish. And if one's goal is to achieve wealth, position or fame he/she must learn and practice the systematic procedures to achieve their goal, either in a formal training or from a personal mentor/s.

Education is a key factor of our life. It is important in everyone's life. If we compare an educated one over uneducated then we see the difference between them. Education gives us moral, Education is not only that what we read in books but also it is the moral values which are very important in our life. How to live, How to behave, How to talk. All these we taught by our parents or teachers comes under education only. And without morality, good behavior, you cannot be successful in your life. So, in my opinion, we really need the education to be successful in our life.

I believe that yes education is very important in one's road to success. When someone takes examples of famous dropouts, Bill Gates and Mark, they fail to mention that they studied for two years in Havard and they learned a lot many things. They were naturally brilliant, true, but their knowledge was diversified only through education. They left the college because they couldn't wait to present their ideas to the world.

Sachin Tendulkar is another dropout, but for him, the school was cricket ground, and he never took a day off from it. One needs education mixed with hard work to reach new heights of success.

Education is not the key to success although it's still important in our lives, the key to success is God, the bible says to ask you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened for you. Why most people don't understand this it's because, as we grow up we have been given the thought that there's no such thing as a miracle, scientists and their theory, but the bible tells us that we have two kinds of wisdom, Which is spiritual wisdom and human wisdom which is said to be evil and demonic. God will only be the key to success if you believe in him and if you put your whole faith in him. God is the key to success, as you can also see that all the prophets in the bible where wealthy. God is the key to success honestly not education. We have a lot of people who are qualified but still are jobless and also remember that prosperity is not in the bank account but it's in your mind, let the poor say I'm rich, let the lame say I can walk.

No, we don't need education to be successful, whether you're a Ph.D. or dropout, you can still put South Africa on the map. Many uneducated people successful because they are hard working. In the past, the poor had no money for education but some of them became rich or even tycoons. Apart from working hard, working ability and social skills can also lead to success. When you have started your career, your academic education becomes less important. Companies will rather employ a person who can handle a given task than a graduate who can do nothing but only possesses a degree. Holding a certificate of graduation does not prove your working ability, there is a higher chance that you may not handle the work effectively. Many successful artists and sportsmen are not graduates but they can glorify their own work and come to success. A violinist does not require a certificate so that he can be admired, he can brighten the whole early with his playing skills alone. A football player also needs to pay attention to the situation, does he need education so that he will be praised?

Therefore education is not need us.

Education is not necessary to be successful but it's important. Education is like a path to success. It drives you to the right path. During this path you realise your potential, you figure out your dreams and goals in addition to this the hardwork combined with smart work will lead to success.

It's not the most important, but it's one of the factors. Education helps you to differ between right and wrong. Education, experience and presence of mind lead to one being successful.

One just not limit education to degree.

It's one's ability to apply that degree into practical world, to make difference in society. If one just restricts education to degree, he/she could earn well, but not successful. Success means growing in your field of expertise, which will be possible only with the application of practical knowledge.

The people who are educated and successful are more than people who are not educated and successful.

I think we should first understand a difference between the type of education we are talking about, is it related to just going to school and college and being recognized by a university or kind of education in field of extra-circular activities in which a person has passion and can do well.

Education can be of many types. And it differs from person to person that what he/she really wants to enter into.

We cannot say education is important for success or not.

It includes various fields that can be just related to studies and related to finding your passion in something else.

A person chooses to study a particular course is education as well as a person entering into a field of their choice like singing, dancing, acting, any kind of sports. This all need education but related to that field.

We cannot comprise education only to learning and writing a paper and when you qualify, you get a job and thus you achieve success further in that path education is much beyond that. It includes anything and everything.

Success is a general term. What I see as success might not be your idea of success (but let's just coin the term as a financial one).

Education is great for tackling long-term developments in any community. It helps a person become open-minded and thus helps them make better decisions on their own (with the bonus of degrees and such which help you get into various fields of work). It exists for the benefit of the local/global community as a whole.

Now without education, you can't go very far unless you have luck on your side. I mean you could work your socks off for the next 10 years and be stuck with a small shack barely making it to the next paycheck because you couldn't land your dream job. Effort is not worth much unless you have luck on your side. And luck is hard to come by. Education could make this easier. Also, your views on fields of work and such will change as you gain knowledge- highlighting another point: it helps you discover yourself and your capabilities. Therefore it provides important skills for you to survive in the real world.

Being a college student myself- the stress from the work given is intense. I would without doubt take the place of a rich kid and immediately be rich and live a good life and be successful. Currently, the ill health of my parents has also hit me pretty hard. I would MUCH rather spend the time with them than do core maths. The world is a harsh place.

All I can say is that education does have its pros and cons man, but in reality its just helpful for a future which we can't see or change.

Education is an important implement that is applied in the modern world to succeed, as it alleviates the challenges which are faced in life. It defines how willing a person is to succeed in life and have a bright future. Education separates an ignorant from a learned and a determined person from a lazy person. It is the process of providing schooling and giving systematic instructions in a school or a university. If society is uneducated people will not be able to contemplate on logical lines. In education, everything lies on each other. In primary school, your SATs are a key factor to what high school you get into and then your GCSE's decide your eventual fate in whether you get admitted into the college or not. It is all a chain of events that depend on each other. In college, your A levels regulate what university you get accepted in. After you finish university and you apply for a Job your future and your job will lie on your GCSE's.

Education plays a vital role in the contemporary world. Nowadays, there are many ways to augment the education level. It is not so costly because now anyone one with less money may study continuously. Everyone can get accepted into the big and popular universities nowadays because of their interval studying. Small training organizations are providing education to augment the skill levels in certain specific fields. Education makes us strong by reassuring us mentally, socially and intellectually through an increasing in our knowledge level by technical skills and good position in the job that we will work in the future.

In my opinion, education plays a vital role in the society as it is an effective tool to get the job. Yes, there are so many successful people who are not most educated. But, it doesn't mean that they are successful because they didn't study. It is because they work hard towards their goals. They are very few in numbers, who achieve everything without education. But most people are able to find the job if they have some educational qualification in the 20th century. We know the successful people who didn't have degrees but we didn't know statistical figures of unsuccessful people who are not having any degrees.

No, we really don't the education to be successful because education teaches us how to do but not what to do. Take an example of Abraham Lincoln he had a minimal amount of education, however, he became the president of USA. So education comes into a place it is not a key to success.

In my view, I think education is still paramount to success but what is needed to understand is that we tend to level everything about education to going to school, acquiring degrees. The term education is beyond that, for instance, Henry Ford had no higher learning education, but he was able to build a large corporation named Ford Motor, the question, was he uneducated? no, he was an educated man in his field. Education is not about knowing everything topic but knowing the basic things that count. And while I think school and getting degree is also important is it is a natural phenomenal for human being to stay in a comfort zone. I think, if there had not been the school idea, I think most men and women will still be as primitive as the apes. So in conclusion, education is needed, it is the base of intellectualism but school is just one of the means through which a concrete education could be acquired, Education defines success but school and high learning institution does not.

HI, Friends.

So, Today Most important current Point is Education.

My point of view is that education is one type of technology solves your skill power already hide in your mind. My opinion is basic education is really needed to be the successful life. Education is not at all necessary for being a successful person.

Success does not always depend on education but nowadays most important part successful life style. Education only for find and open many ways. Which one is best or not?

I think it is completely crazy to say education is not a key to success I mean look at the celebrities who went back to school because they felt in complete without education take Michael Jackson, for example, he made so much money at a very fragile age but felt incomplete you know because he knew by then that education is a key to various doors. I mean you cannot just wake up one day and say you want to be a scientist when you, on the other hand, don't even know how to mix chemicals together [my point is that education is the foundation to life and success].

Education teaches us how to do it but not what to do. You need the strive, passion, determination, encouragement and persistence to achieve something. Take Abraham Lincoln, he had a minuscule amount of education however he became the president of the USA! It is the idea that matters. That's why many companies hire people to make their items while you think of ideas. So while education does come into place it is not the KEY to success.

Hello everyone,

I think education is not important to become a successful person. But we can't neglect that education gives learning. By education we learn creativity, improve our thinking, but when education is used as a method of learning to make a person skilled and valuable then the education may lead to success.

We really not be much educated for starting up a business.

Big business comes from great ideas, not from great education. Similarly, we need to be educated that much so that we can check our business is going in loss or profit.

If you are a well-educated person then you are the person who will run after only a great job, not for business.

I personally believe that in order for someone to be successful at what they do, they need to be educated. Whether it's formally or informally. Education is perceived differently, but the fact of the matter is that all need the education to survive in life. We all learn by example. Education is extremely important.

Hii everyone.

My point of view is that without education persons also can do many things like if you have a talent, you should do work hard.
I agree that some ways we have to educational but if anybody say that education is everything for being successful I don't Agree because we have much more examples. Like Sachin, he was the 10th failure but he became THE GOD OF CRICKET so how can anybody say that education is everything for being successful? It's all depend on our hard work/Talent.

Hello, everyone!

Success is not only knowledge-based Gift to be achieved. It's something beyond that. We often use to say a famous proverb "Try hard until you get success". Success is decided by education. But it's not, the only criteria that one should possess to achieve success. Hard work and perseverance make one's work successful. Even a common man without basic formal education can do something amazing with their wonderful talents which can't be even possible for an educated person. So there is no sense in deciding success by the factor of EDUCATION.

I conclude that,

Every Successful Person may be educated.

But, ALL EDUCATED PERSONS ARE NOT SUCCESSFUL. "So education is not making any sense regarding SUCCESS".

Success does not always depend on education. People with talent can be successful too. But education always leads to success. If one wants to become a chef, engineer or else an advocate, education is the must. How can he/she knows what the given ingredients actually mean to cook? As well to become a politician one must have leadership quality as well as education. How can he/she act without knowing sections of the constitution?

In every stream of work, one must need education to act properly. But that doesn't mean person without education cannot be succeeded. Success defines no.of ways. But the pair of talent, education definitely leads to success.

Hai to everyone!

In my point of view, success means accomplishing a desired aim and education means is not getting a lot of degrees it is the acquisition of knowledge, skills, habits, moral values.

Well, education is not necessary to become successful but basic education is essential.

To become successful we need strong determination, will power, communication skills, positive towards the goal, hard work, luck.

We have to work hard to reach our goals. There are so many successful persons in our country with out degrees but they are having basic education.

To get success in any field we should have basic education.

Education shows the path to reach our goals.

"A man without basic education is a building without foundation".

So, my opinion is basic education is really needed to be successful.
