Napoleon Hill, the author of “Think and Grow Rich” says in his book; “An educated man is not, necessarily, one who has an abundance of general or specialized knowledge. An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others.” I believe this quote to be very accurate. If you look around, you will see that majority of rich and successful people didn’t attended college, or didn’t finish it, or didn’t even go to a high school. …

There are tons of ways to learn a new language now without going to a course for it. One of the most resourceful and useful things is YouTube. Yes. You didn’t read it wrong. With YouTube, you can learn whatever you want, either a language, a historical part of the world, anything you like. But I think one of the most complicated parts of it is learning a language.

Working is essential. All of us work but most of us in only one job. There are also people working in different jobs at the same time. How and why? There are several reasons for this, but I can safely say that majority of it is to create an income sustainable enough to cover your expenses.

All of us would want to work in companies like Google, Facebook, YouTube, etc. if we have the chance, right? How a great life we’d be leading? It is great, there is no doubt about that but the thing is that most of the recruiters now doesn’t care whether you have worked in Google or not.
