This question often springs up in my mind, and I’ve been pondering over it for a very long time now. The relationship between being a billionaire and being a college or university graduate. What link has becoming a billionaire with a college or university degree? Is there really a link, relationship or connection between them? When i took a critical introspective study of many of our contemporary world billionaires, i discovered that most of them dropped-out of school or never completed their college or university education. For instance, Bill Gate, the American billionaire and founder of Microsoft, Mark Zukerberg was only a sophomore student when he founded Facebook, which has now become the cream of the crop, Carlos Slim, the Mexican billionaire, Warren Buffet, Aliko Dangote, the richest black man in Africa by Forbes, and so many others which i can’t vividly remember now, but hope you’d help add to the list, and where i’m wrong, i stand to be corrected as no one has the monopoly of knowledge. Now i ask, do you really need a college or university degree in order to become a billionaire? Should you become a drop-out to become a billionaire? Or are you just wasting your time trying to get a degree? Instead of going out there and start making the billions. These are down-to -earth questions you should start asking yourself. Because those who asks “why” and are ready to bring up solutions are always on top. I’ve taken a very long and elaborate critical study of this, and came up with the conclusion that becoming a billionaire has got nothing to do with a college or university degree. Infact there’s absolutely no link or connection between both. However, i’m not trying to discourage getting a degree from a college or university education, it is absolutely commendable if you can do that. All i’m saying is that, it has got nothing to do with becoming a billionaire, and it isn’t a panacea to becoming a billionaire. Becoming a billionaires is purely “entrepreneurship” and it is according to your mindset. The whole truth about becoming a billionaire depends on your “passion” and “determination” to become an entrepreneur. Without the ultimate passion and determination to become an entrepreneur and add value to life, you can’t become a billionaire. When i look the world billionaires, i see their passion, determination and doggedness in entrepreneurship and the desire to add value to life. They never allowed college or university failure to deter them from their dreams and passion of making real impacts in the world. The ability to become a billionaire is in everyone, but only few people know this. A lot of people allows circumstances, challenges, failures, backgrounds, unfavorable situations to rob them of this potential, and consequently kill their passion of making positive impacts in the world. Becoming a billionaire depends entirely on your mindset and passion of adding value to life, its nothing more than that. It is a resolve you must make yourself, no college or university will teach you how to become billionaire, but the ability resides in you, and you’re potentially capable of doing it. If only you can be passionate about adding value to life, and develop a strong determination of becoming an entrepreneur. You don’t need to be a drop-out or graduate to become a billionaire, it is about building your passion, zeal and determination to become an entrepreneur in order to create real impact in people lives. Entrepreneurs rule the world, as long as the economy is concerned, they’re leaders, they make positive impacts in peoples lives through creating jobs, they add value to the life, they assist the government to grow the economy and determines their cash flows. Their paramount aim is to generate more income in order to affect more lives positively. The world needs more entrepreneurs to solve the current global economic challenges confronting it. You don’t need all the degrees to become an entrepreneur, and subsequently a billionaire. All you need is the passion and strong determination to touch lives through entrepreneurship. Never think you’re incapacitated, or you can’t do it, because you’ve got the ability, and all it takes to make it happen. Its definitely a matter of time, but you’ve got to start small. Remember, “You don’t have to be great to start but you have to start to be great.” ~ Zig Ziglar.
