Bill Gates to the Gen Next----

Here's some advice Bill Gates dished out at high school speech about 11 things they did not learn at school. He talks about how feel-good politically correct teaching have created a full generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world. Go ahead tell the kids:-
1) Life is not fair, get use to it
2) The world wont care about your self esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you fell good about yourself.
3) You will not make Forty thousand dollars out of high school. You wont be a vice president with a Car, Phone until you earn both.
4) If you think teacher is tough, wait until you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure!!
5) Flipping burger is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping they called it opportunity.
6) If you mess up its not your parents fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
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 about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
8) Your school may have done away with winners and losers but life has not. In some school 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.
9) Life is not divided into semesters. You dont get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.
10) Television is not real life(nor are video games). In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to job.
11) Be nice to nerds. Chances are you will end up working one. 

Words of wisdom there from the worlds most successful man. Sure we can relate to our lives even if we are working and in some sense we all are students, still learning and growing.
