~A Little of Bill Gates "Philosophy" on Life~

Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world. "Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!

Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk abo! ut how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one."

Truer woords have never been spoken! ~Love and Light~

Date: 1/27/2006 5:45:00 PM  From Authorid: 28848    It's about time someone stood up for what is real and stopped candy-coating our world.  
Date: 1/27/2006 6:29:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 27403    It sounded a little tough to me, and I wasn't sure how the young people would take it! BUT, it is the truth! ~Love and Light~  
Date: 1/28/2006 1:26:00 PM  From Authorid: 62993    Good philosophies. Thanks for sharing.  
Date: 1/29/2006 7:14:00 PM  From Authorid: 24732    Bill Gates never said any of these things. This list is just one of the many versions of a forward based on another list some guy made up and Bill Gate's name somehow got tacked on for publicity. http://www.snopes.com/language/document/liferule.htm  
Date: 1/29/2006 9:34:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 27403    Well, he should have said it, but thanks for the heads up, Alien Life Form!! ~Love and Light~
