Though school or college is the best learning phase for a person but still there are many things which you won’t learn in school or college. Here we have prepared a list of great advices given by Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg at different speeches in High School.
Bill Gates in a speech at Mt. Whitney High School in Visalia, California:
Rule 1– Life is not fair – Get used to it.
Rule 2- The world doesn’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you can feel good about yourself.
Rule 3- If you think that your teacher is really tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 4- You are not going to make Rs. 25,00,000 per year right out of your college. You won’t be a president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 5- Life is not divided into semesters like your college. You will not get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you “FIND YOURSELF”. Do that on your own time.
Rule 6– Television, Internet and video games are NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to their jobs.
Rule 7– Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents’ generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8– Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life will not. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to anything in real life.
Rule 9– If you are messed up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 10– Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.
Rule 11– Always Be nice to nerds. There are chances that you’ll end up working for one of them.
Mark Zuckerberg’s Speech to Eighth Graders at Belle Haven:
Advice 1– Everything that is worth doing is pretty hard and takes lot of hard work. Success is not about a single moment, it’s about years and years of hard work and practice. There are no shortcuts in life.
Advice 2- Focus on building great friendships and relationships with the people you trust. Lot of things you guys will try to do are hard, so you always need some people around who knows you well and always there to support you and to say that you can do this. These strong relationships helps you to build awesome things.
Advice 3- Do what you love. It is very easy to achieve awesome things if you really love doing that thing.
Whoever wrote these things is very wise and knows lot of things about life and entrepreneurs. Remember to note all these points to lead a successful life.
