You do not need university to be successful in life

Extracts from this document...


?You do not need university to be successful in life.? Success depends on each individual; the meaning success varies to everyone. I believe it is not necessary to attend university to be successful in life. Wealth isn?t the same as success it is apart of success. Going to university may prepare you for what you might encounter in the career path you choose, but reaching success depends on other things. Bill Gates knew what he wanted to do since the age of sixteen! Thus leaving Harvard University after reading ?The little book.?
