Now this is the reason most people think that education is not important, the capital of success is hard work. But they were wrong! Not attending high school does not mean uneducated. Because not going to school and not being educated are two different things

Education is a person's effort to get educated or become educated. Being educated does not ignore the learning process

Education is the learning of knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people that are passed down from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Education often takes place under the guidance of others, but it is also possible to be self-taught

Education is a conscious and planned effort to create a learning atmosphere and learning process, so that students actively develop their potential to have religious spiritual strength, self-control, personality, intelligence, noble character, and skills needed by themselves, society, nation and state.

Not going to school, just not sitting in school, not having the opportunity to joke around with friends and so on. But being uneducated means not having the awareness that life is learning. Learning is not only about the material given in school, but also about learning to understand that this world is not like this, this world is evolving. Along with that understanding, there will be a spirit to be curious, a passion to work, a passion to be creative and in the end is to learn what you don't know for the capital to be smart, creative, and successful. So who says success doesn't need education?

The online world sellers who are booming with promotions that, "I'm just a blah blah, but can earn tens of millions of rupiah" or farmers or ranchers who are successful with their agricultural products or livestock, even though he never went to school. Don't you think that these sellers are not immediately successful, they learn first from word processing to attractive promotions, learning how to run a business.

Likewise the farmers or ranchers, success does not just come. There is a learning process, how to make plants thrive, how to avoid pests, and how to get good results. For the livestock to develop etc. Of course it all starts with learning.

Scroll up again to the top, education is learning knowledge, skills, habits, and so on. So how can you be successful without education?

Don't think randomly! It is better to understand first what education is. Education is important, especially with the spirit of hard work, never giving up, and focus. But keep in mind, that there are also many successful people with academic degrees. So, being educated and having a degree accompanied by a spirit of hard work, never giving up, and focusing is certainly better.

Remember! Success is not just about hard work! Hard work without intelligence is just a perfunctory result. Again, intelligence does not come for free, but links the process of thinking and learning in it which of course cannot be avoided from the word education. So, success requires education! Agree?
