Do we really need the college & higher studies to be successful in life?"Being successful" would mean different to different individuals. For few it's the family or this could be the life-style in certain aspects. This list would be long but the most talked about areas are the carrier & the salary & major part of the society are concerned with these aspects of their life & the term "Being successful" too are measured on these grounds.
Although this can't possibly the case because of the live examples like that of Bill Gates & Sachin Tendulkar who moved with their interests & now we know them as one of the most famous personalities & icons in their areas but even if this remains the fact, don't you feel that being going with the higher studies gives you more options for your carriers growth & financial assistance. There could be the various ways wherein we see this around like it helps you but again it isn't a guarantee of success nor is the lack of it a guarantee of failure but instead it simply improves the likelihood & the chances for having more in either ways.
I do feel that others too have got with different opinions here. Let's discuss.
