Why you don't need a degree

Lots of people complain that they don’t earn enough money because they don’t have a degree!

I think this is laziness talking!

If you have access to the internet then you surely don’t need a degree to become skilled in a subject. You can literally teach yourself anything by just doing a few Google searches.

That’s exactly how I got to learn the things I know today…

Sure if you want to become a dentist or a doctor then unfortunately due to regulations you need to have a degree.

There will obviously be some cases where it’s necessary – and rightfully so. I wouldn’t want someone working on me in the medical field who doesn’t have any documentation.

Take Tony Robbins as an example. The guy read every book he could get his hands on when it comes to human psychology and today he is one of the most respected and highest paid individuals in his field – by the way he has no degree.

Here’s an example:

Let’s say you want to become a freelance writer. I bet if you spend 3 or 4 hours a day just reading about copywriting, in a year you will know just as much, if not more than the average person studying it.

Why is this the case?

Because the internet has so much more information. Most education books are out of date and simply couldn’t keep up with the times. This means that with the internet, there is a lot more up to date information available.

Decide what you want to do and immerse yourself into education around the subject. Watch as many Youtube videos as you can and read as many articles as you can. If you dedicate your time to it you will become successful at it.
