I think you gotta look at the reason for ditching College rather than just the action of doing so.

Exactly. It’s the method of success. For instance, artists who never even wanted to become famous, and precisely because of that (plus their genial minds) they got immensely famous.

So, those you are referring to, who ditched college, didn’t intend to do so, but it happened. Related to that, you should ask yourself if you are actually a genius.

If so, good luck :)

So what you’re saying is: If you want to purposely drop out of college to become rich and famous, you wont make it? :grin:

I am not saying you won’t make it, I am just saying it’s not the usual or ‘proper’ way of doing it :D

I would definitely suggest getting a college education.

The secret to being successful is hard work.

Did you just started this thread because you are trying to convince your mom that you should skip college? :D Been there… good luck ;)

Sort of :D

I want to go to college, just don’t want my mom to keep telling me to study all the time :P :D

Better listen to your mom ;), because in 20 years or so you will be telling it to your kids and then you understand why she keeps on saying this.

And then your to late to listen.

I actually dropped college, and involved myself into self-learning and practicing the art of life, and now after 3 years, i’m here in themeforest ..

Wait for my theme to get released…

and let’s wait for myself to turn 18 to move to singapore and start living at a 180 degree angle.

What i need is support atm., so don’t forget to press the “My Good Wishes” button. ;)
