College degrees are the new FIAT currency, it seems like everyone has one these days. The promises of success that just await for anyone who is willing to sign their names on the dotted line. It’s unfortunate how many of us have fallen for the dream of a great future and only to find out that you are just like the rest.
Working in drab corporate offices and indulging in office politics as it is the only way to get ahead in the corporate world. Work and toil your ass off hoping for one day maybe you can sit back and relax and not work so hard anymore.
But soon you will realize that the dream they sold you when you were younger was just that a dream! A dream where you will never achieve in your real life and if you do you will always be under some one else’s boot lam bang dai hoc.
You realize this while you sit in traffic in the morning rush to get to work. In a cubicle breathing unfiltered air and being around people you do not like. This is what happens to every person everyday!
Having a college degree and I have said this time and time again that they do not guarantee success. Success has to come from you wanting it bad enough to create your own. Now a days college degrees are the new FIAT currency! Like the dollar there is so many people out there exchanging money all over the place and while this is happening the dollar slowly continues to lose its value. The more money is out on the street the less you can buy with it.
The 25 cents bag of chips a few years ago is now a dollar today. I’m not much of an Economist but at least I know that something is wrong with this picture. This rings true with college degrees!
The more people take the time to get one the more the degree loses its value like a FIAT currency.
A college degree is just a piece of paper that is backed by nothing except to keep you in debt. It does not guarantee you a job, that has to come from you and not your FIAT college degree.
In the beginning College Degrees did hold a lot of weight behind it and at one time promised you a shot at success. Just like the Dollar did when this country was young. But as time progressed the value of both continue to deteriorate more and more to a point that some day soon Average Joe or Jane will not be able to pay for a good education anymore.
So many people with degrees walking around fighting for the same types of jobs. You are just another face in the crowd of millions who are hitting the pavement everyday. You ask yourself why! Why did I spend all this money only to find out that it is worth nothing. Colleges and Universities pump out college degrees by the thousands! Any type of degree you want I’m sure some college or university is already teaching.
College degrees are the new FIAT currency of colleges and universities everywhere. It is in their best interests to keep the money train coming in and continue to sucker naive people into getting themselves in debt. They do not care what you major in!
Just look around at the types of stupidity they try to sell as education. I know for me when I got my degree I had to put on some comfortable shoes and hit that pavement hard! Most of the interviews they did not even bother to ask if I had a college degree they only ask if I can do the job that they expect me to do.
Hear that noise?
Those are the degree mills pumping out degrees non stop! Worthless paper that cannot even get you through the door these days. Many young people these days are suffering as it has become extremely difficult for them to begin living their lives.
The Colleges and Universities no longer teach what the students need to know about real life and its difficulties. They do not teach you how to adapt to your environment or to be smart enough to survive.
Be smart and do not allow yourself to be manipulated by those that claim they are the authority, always ask yourself or even those people that claim to be looking out for you questions.
Do not be led like Sheep to the slaughter!
There are many other roads to success getting a College Degree is just one of many and it is not the only road to take. Research the field you want to study and make a realistic decision!
Like if I study this will I have jobs available to me when I finish? In this volatile economic times you never know if you will have a job when you get out of college.
