Success is about personal skills not educating. A simple example that you can see on daily basis, is people with degrees and with no success, however, on the other hand, people with no education and successful.

According to me, we can be successful without any education. If we have an aim and dream (goal) to achieve anything so we can't need education you only need your hard work and success. We have a lot of examples of being a successful person without education for ex- Sachin Tendulkar is not good in study but he is good at cricket. And he is a hard worker and achieved success in cricket and now he is a good cricketer.

Hello, everyone, I would like to say a few words about the topic assigned to us named do education really needed to be successful?

First of all, what is an education? Education is the process of facilitating learning and acquiring knowledge, skills and thaughts. Education is the most important. I don't deny that. For the most part the more education you receive you will lead a good life. But education is not only the key factor which contribute in order to be successful. There are many people without education settled in a top position while the most educated people who used to secure ranks in their college are settled at lower paying jobs. I believe everyone heard about Steve Jobs who is the founder of Apple. He is the most successful person. He never pursued such a higher education. It is his thinking abilities which distinguished him from others and made him succeeded. So I would like to conclude education is not only the key factor for becoming a successful person, I am sure it is needed but to some extent. Beyond that it is ones that thinking abilities and emotional intelligence which will elevate their career to higher peaks in order to become successful.

Obviously, education is a must for success. Education is the thing which no one can steal from us. A person who gets a good education will become a good citizen. By education, we can think freely every factor of our lives and understand every field of life. If we are educated than we can easily understand every situation and can solve every problem. Education does not mean by getting good degrees, good grades and good universities. But education is about having knowledge of something. For eg, Smriti Irani is not more educated but she is a member of our parliament. Because she has a knowledge of politics. And also she can understand our problems easily. That's why she is very famous. In the end. I can only say that education is important in this competitive time. But knowledge is more important to get success in life. Thanks.

Hii everyone! This is Devanshi Dwivedi and here is my opinion about this topic:

No, education is not required to achieve success: Education is not necessary to achieve success. Success depends on an individual's capacity to use his talent and creativity in the most effective manner.

Even if you are uneducated, or have received a very little education even then you can achieve great success in life by putting your skills in the right place and the right time.

It is true that education might get you respect from the society but in the end, it is neither the society nor the respect it might give you that will make you. It is your own will and determination and it does not require formal education to be successful.

There are so many examples of highly successful entrepreneurs who either did not go to school or received a very little education but with their skills, determination, and hard work they made successful careers.

Education might be important for some and might have been accepted as a social obligation but it does not guarantee that you will be successful with whatever you have received by spending so much time at the educational institutions. You can communicate effectively so that is enough education, i.e. you can write, read, and are not dependent on others for these needs will be sufficient.

You should follow your passions in life and education will only limit your avenues.

In my opinion, education is not the only key to success. To be successful we skill with passion. There are many people who are no educated but still they are successful take for example- Sachin Tendulkar, he was no educated but still he is successful in his life similarly Mary Kom she was a drop out from school but she is a successful fighter, after being a boxer she went to pursue her education as she wanted to prove that she is also a fighter out of the ring. Thomas Alva Edison was expelled from school as his teachers thought that he was too slow to learn, he was taught by his mother at home and because of him only it is possible for us to connect with people farther from us, he invented the telephone, the light bulb and so on. The Wright brothers who invented the went to school but they never graduated. So what made these famous personalities to be successful in life was it education? No. It is their skill and their interest in work that made them successful. There are many people who have numerous degrees but still, they are unemployed, 60% of engineering graduates in India are unemployed. So how can we say that education can only lead to success? There are many other ways in which we can be successful in life. So, I would like to conclude with this. Thank you.

Hi everyone. This is Dhananjay.

In my view, we can't say that "one literate person can only be successful. Strong determination, hard work, dedication and many things are the key to success. If some one has a strong willingness to do something, then no one has the ability to stop him. Even education also can't restrict him.

But, it's true that nowadays, everyone has to be literate, because through education we can see/ judge things in a different way, In a brighter way. It will help to enhance our mentality/thinking, then only the no. Of crime which is being happened, can reduce. & equal priority to both gender which has been a major problem in India for decades. & many different things can be changed.

Thank you.

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".

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,

1) Education is the basic need of every human being, education develops your thinking skills, reasoning, thoughts, decision making power, etc.

2) Educated person is the need of country because young and educated person can participate in India's better development.

3) Without education we can not see he developed India.

4) so yes we do really need the education to be successful in life and career growth. Eduction gives you an extraordinary life in comparison to others.

5) But yes in this era only education or degree is not so important, skills are more important, we should have developed lots of skills for to be a rich or successful person.

6) We have observed lots of examples like legend Sachin Tendulkar, he is 12th pass but from his childhood, he was very talented in cricket he had lots of tricks to play cricket, so he dedicated his life to cricket and right now he is the god of cricket.

7) Lots of examples are surrounding us by which we can conclude that skills are more important but these all are only exceptions.

8) Education plays a vital role in the development mindset of a child The success ratio is very low in extra fields like Singing, dancing, film industry. Etc.

9) But yes, it is also true that an educated person must open opportunities for himself by his knowledge and skills.


Jay Hind.
