Never Use the Words “I Can’t”

Hey I found this nice article from under30ceo.com and thought of sharing it with you

Have you ever been told you couldn’t do something?  Have you listened to society telling you that you have to get an education to be somebody?  Society is bad about making us believe that we have to go to school, get good grades, go to college, get a degree so we can get a good job.  But how many actually use the degree they receive?  Not many, not many at all.  Don’t get me wrong here, education is a great thing but it seems like we are learning the same things over and over.  I had some of the same courses and teachings that I learned in high school, why would you repeat this?  I was never the school type, I love to learn but I love to learn things that I like or that will help me with what I want to do not algebra where you try and figure out what happened to x.  For a long time I denied that I had the entrepreneur spirit in me mainly because I had it in my head that I had to choose something generic in college.  My father always owned his own businesses and always told me the sky was the limit but I seemed to think “oh the sky is the limit to be a teacher, medical field, nurse, etc.”

Another reason I strayed away from pursuing it was friends.  They would say “oh why would you want to go and do that when you could do this or you could go to grad school?” Let me tell you a little something about grad school… all it’s for is to take more money out of your pockets and prolong your process of getting out into the real world and working.  So many people are in debt because of school fees and now they can’t even get a job.  Okay so you can’t get a job so the best thing to do is to go spend more money and get in debt by going to grad school?  Let me say also, yes some schooling for medical fields and all of those careers are understandable.  Imagine if they just let the doctors graduate in four years and sent them out to start surgeries?  Yeah, no thank you.  So that is not what I’m talking about, that is different.  I am talking about those that are a college student for life, you’re only prolonging the great things you could be doing.
