We all have been told at some point during our life, that EDUCATION is the key to success in life.
It normally goes something like this: “Go to school, get good grades so that you can get a secure job”.
Germany, were I live for the last decade, is not an exception with this mentality, but a lot of emphasis is put on getting what’s called an AUSBILDUNG, which is the German word for a dual system of Apprenticeship. Again, the emphasis is on becoming the best you can during your apprenticeship and get as much working experience during the three years that it normally lasts, with the main goal of landing a good job at a respectable company.
Don’t get me wrong, the fact that the huge majority of people follow that rule, has turned Germany into the powerhouse of Europe, giving it a very respectable position in today’s world.
That doesn’t mean though, that at the personal level, one has it easy. Like in almost every other country in the world, the majority ends up working as employees, exchanging their time for money. In fact, it’s so ingrained in the German mentality, that one of the main factors when comparing or evaluating a job, is the hourly rate; how much you would get paid for ever worked hour. In this, there is no difference with most of the world.
However, this emphasis on an hourly rate is a huge disadvantage, if what you really want is financial freedom.
Why do I see this as a disadvantage? Doesn’t the majority of the world do exactly the same?
It’s just a matter of how we’ve been educated, how we’ve been trained to think. In the modern school system, almost anywhere on this planet, the main purpose is to prepare young people to become a cog in a huge machinery. The machinery of the standard job, where people get happily to exchange their time for money.
The problem though, is that you only have 24 hours a day and, no matter how high your hourly rate is, you cannot increase the amount of hours a day that you have.
Unlinking Money from Time
If you really want to achieve financial freedom, you must detach money from time. You have to stop thinking in terms of hourly rates.
This is the main reason why you need a different type of education. Let me repeat that:
To actually make money, you need to get a totally different type of education. It’s just a fact!
I mean, you could take somebody who didn’t even finish high school, in other words, somebody who, according to the mainstream way of thinking, isn’t prepared to succeed in this modern world and, with the appropriate education, and the consistent applying of that education, turn them into an amazing success. This person could be capable of earn so much money, that an educated person would probably think that he’s doing something illegal to do that.
Why is that? Because the ability of earning lots of money has nothing to do with a “formal education” as we know it. The mainstream education has as its goal, the creation of people willing to exchange their time for a payment. It’s something that’s embedded in each and everyone of its pupils for years on end.
Invest in YOUR Education
The principle mentioned above, applies as well, when somebody has the goal of making money in the online world. First, the mentality that ties time and money needs to be eradicated. Then, you need to get the appropriate type of education to become successful.
Obviously, some of the principles and abilities learned on mainstream schools will help you online. Reading, for instance, is a requirement to do business online, so is being able to write or talk appropriately. But you need more, you need specific knowledge to help you achieve your goals.
This article on my personal blog, explains in better detail what is required and why it makes sense to invest in very good training course, or seminars, to become knowledgeable.
Just think about how much money people is willing to invest to go to a mainstream college, without a guarantee that they will get a job in the end. And yet, people are more than willing to make the investment, even by getting loans, because that’s how they see it, as an investment.
In my opinion, something to ponder about!
This blog post is written on a site that belongs to one of the best “Online Education Academies” on the Internet at the moment. It’s just a matter of taking advantage of what it has to offer.
Once again, if you want to make money online, make sure you get the right type of education.
