If You’re A Struggling College Graduate, Here’s A Few Key Points Your They Didn’t Tell You. (Because They Didn’t Know)
With my corrupt school system beliefs, people ask me, “Are you going to send your kids to college or no?”
This is a very good question and I’m glad you asked!
Yes, they will go to college….. only if they really want to!
I’ll tell you this… I did, but as I looked around and realized it wasn’t working for anyone I knew, I jumped up, fled to the mountains, and never looked back!
I remember when my parents were pushing me and scolded, “what are you going to do with that skateboard? You need to hurry and go to college and get a safe secure job!”!
My Dad loves me, and he thought he was protecting or helping me, but he unintentionally almost killed my every dream I ever had.
If I would have listened, I would have never lived every dream I’ve ever had.
If I would have stopped skateboarding and “given in” to go back to college and do the normal route, I might have been what normal heads call “successful”, which was being stuck indoors 8-10 hours/day, every day, building the dreams of someone else, some job or business I hate, existing simply to chase money.
Instead, since I did almost the opposite – something “different”, and I got to live the dream life…
So why do most people think that this is the “safe” way to go?
It is simply because their parent’s passed down this information, which was passed down from their parents, who also didn’t know any better, and may have come from The Great Depression, where it was more “safe” to have a safe secure job…
That was in the Industrial Age. But THIS is the Information Age! So….
5 Reasons Why Being A Struggling College Graduate Is The “Norm”
- They Asked The Wrong Questions, (And Told You To Pick Something):
They ask, “What do you want to BE when you grow up?”.What they should have asked is “What do you want your life to be LIKE?”I can’t tell you how important it is to find your passion instead of thinking you need to “be something” to make your parents proud or do what you’ve been programmed for – what you’re “supposed” to do…
- Many Times College Methods And Education Are Outdated:
In my case, I was able to receive a better education through up-to-date cutting edge workshops, courses, books, training, and seminars, online .You can learn from proven gurus on specific subjects, depending on which direction you want to go.Much of the time, professors are teaching theoretical information, and this method would be like reading a book on being a professional snowboarder. It doesn’t really work that way.
- There Is No Guarantee:
How many friends and family do you know, who went to college and couldn’t even find a job for what they graduated for?How many people do you know, who have been working for years, and still can’t pay off their college loan?How many people do you know who have 2 and even 3 jobs, but they are still not wealthy? Success leaves clues. Lack of success also leaves clues!
- You will most likely invest your time acquiring a skill that will keep you busy for the next 40 years:
I too, wish I would have known this earlier. We all invest tons of time getting good at something. So what are you getting skilled with?Have you stopped to think about what you’re getting “good” at? If you stopped doing it, would you stop getting paid?Now if you stop to think about your future and have a vision for financial and time freedom, then you want to start investing your time getting good at FREEDOM, wouldn’t you? Well, the challenge is, they don’t teach financial freedom in school.They teach you how to memorize things and you may develop a skill that will keep you BUSY, but not FREE.
- Poor People Teach Their Kids “Go To School To Get A Great Job” and “The Smarter You Are, The More Money You Make“:So, you may have been taught to “go to school, get a job”, but wealthy people teach their kids how to HIRE you! They teach their kids financial freedom and investing, to then hire those previously mentioned skilled kids to build the businesses for them!
So… to get back to the question:
No, I’m not going to pressure my kids to go to college and “get a stable job” just because that’s what everybody else does.
If they go to college, it’s going to be specifically to help them with their own visions, ideas, and discipline – hopefully starting their own businesses.
In college, I know they will not be learning about money or leverage. They would have to read wealth books and learn about freedom for that – (that information will not in the school system or it’s books).
Look around and you’ll discover that most of our struggling/busy friends have come out of college, and they are in debt, struggling.
There is simply no guarantee for an income, and most of the time, you will come out of college with a skill that will keep you BUSY and WORKING for linear income, for the rest of your life.
So, instead of any free time to travel or spend time with family, (getting to live instead of just exist to work), you will trade your time for money, struggling month-to-month, for many many years, just to try to pay off the compounding school loans.
The school system will teach you nothing NOTHING about money or leverage, which is why most people simply work until they are 65-70 years old, when your life may already be in decline. You worked, and you never got to live!
Did you know:
College is actually it’s own business system too. That is why people don’t learn the game of money there.
On top of being in debt, we come out of college and we’re tired of “learning”, so most people never go on to read the any more books, where you will discover how to achieve wealth through multiple streams of recurring income.
Most of the time, as soon as we get a raise from our J.O.B., or make more money in our “traditional” small business, we go out and get a bigger house and better car, “keeping up with the Jones'”, keeping ourselves in debt.
Now, I’ve been to college, and I have a good handful of college graduates working for and with me. I hired them because they are “smarter” and more skilled than I am, so they help me build my businesses.
The problem (for them) is: They are building MY dreams instead of their own. Sadly, if they do not decide they deserve better and open their minds to proven ideas that work, they will never get to live their own big dreams.
One of my best friends: He graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in graphic design. He was $35,000 in debt, and cannot pay it back, so it just keeps compounding, with interest.
Now he owes over $40k. He has worked for me, and worked extra hard at other jobs for years, being self-employed.
I personally think, (along with many other wealthy businessmen) that the “school” system is totally corrupt and sets you up for mediocrity (FAILURE).
Without the right information, you will be programmed to go to work and back your whole life, paying your taxes, so the other elite people (the 1%) can be wealthy.
I’m not going to get in too deep on that tax subject, (a whole other can of worms), but you have to watch out who you take advice from.
You must stop taking advice from poor or middle-income people immediately, unless you want the same results!
If you want to be wealthy, from here on forward, you must only take advice from wealthy people, and do what they do, to have the results they have.
Have you been programmed for mediocrity, to be “normal” like everyone else, doing what their parents or “teachers” tell them?
Think about it:
If you were having troubles and wanted advice on your relationship:
Would it be wise to take advice from a person who has been divorced 3 times and is currently SINGLE?
NO… because they’d be giving you their “valuable” advice, (that’s why it’s FREE, lol!), saying silly things like, “just dump her man, it’s not gonna work, there’s millions of other fish in the sea” and “forget her, she a b*tch”!! hahahahaha!! ….
My point to you is this:
Gather the information so you can think (for yourself) and make an educated decision on what you want your life to look like.
Then, find people who actually have the KIND of life you want, and study and copy them to get the results they have.
If you want to be a plumber, go to a plumber for advice.
If you want to be a doctor, go to a doctor for advice. (They may be “skilled”, but if you’re looking for freedom, you will not find it there).
If you want to be wealthy, then get advice from wealthy people only… (residual money from assets. They play golf and travel all year long, having total freedom and wealth, with very minimal work).
They have tons of time freedom to do what they want, when they want, with who they want, for how long they want!
Remember: Wealth is measured in free time and quality of life, not money.
Now, what about you? Most people have to shrink their dreams to match their income, and then plan their life around that income.
They don’t think they deserve to make millions, so they just go to college and get a “stable job” or small business. Nothing wrong with that if you like 40-50 year plan of hard work. It’s just not for us!

More on my kids in college:
If my kids are passionate about college, then they will go! I’m going to fully support them in their passion, no matter what it is, because being able to do what you love and get paid for it is what I believe is success.
If you love what you do, then that’s success, because it’s not going to feel like “work” to you.
However, when it comes to leverage, money, and freedom, you must read wealth and leadership books.
You must invest time and effort into yourself, going to wealth mastery seminars and courses – not reading “school” books, learning from month-to-month struggling folks!
