Words of Wisdom from Bill Gates. (A must read)


A quote from ~ Bill Gates ~

This should be posted on every wall so that kids all over the world can read and digest these wise words.

Love him or hate him , he sure hits the nail on the head with this!
Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about eleven 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 doesn'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 about 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.

If you can read this...thank a Teacher.
If you can read this in English...thank a Soldier!
And for life and everything else you have...thank God!
Now....think about this and smile if you agree and please pass this on....
If you don't agree, go stick your head in the SAND and take a DEEP BREATH!

If you agree, like and pass this on because everyone should read this!

Paying attention in reading, writing and math - works along with all that "advice". (not advise)

No, the above-cited list of "Rules Kids Won't Learn in School" didn't originate with former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates. (It's often cited on the Internet as having come from his book Business @ The Speed of Thought, but it didn't.) Why it has frequently been attributed to him is a mystery to us, as it doesn't sound at all like something he would write. Possibly it's because the item that typically ends the Internet-circulated version of the list ("Be nice to nerds") struck a chord with someone who views Gates as the ultimate successful nerd of all time. .......This list is the work of Charles J. Sykes, author of the 1996 book Dumbing Down Our Kids: Why American Children Feel Good About Themselves But Can't Read, Write, Or Add

Winner Gonzalez said...

If young people would just take a moment to thank - their parents - instead of complaining about them then they will realize that they are who they are because of their parents who: gave them a room, clothes, food, care, supervision, had them, nourished them, drove them everywhere as needed, stressed for them (avoiding you the children to notice)...then you will end up mre GRATEFUL about your parents.

Advice

write my paper for me said...

How can people get up every morning and deal with the same fucking stress every day it will be fantastic. There to fight for, what is there to live for, life has a tendency to screw us over. The fuck tries to fight it. Why does it have to be so hard, it’s absolutely write that Life is not fair get used to it.

This has been attributed to three or four people/sources. They, including Bill Gates, did not write this. The message is quite good however.

Unknown said...

RIGHT ON! Thank you Bill Gates, not only for these words of wisdom (whether you personally authored them or whether you are the conduit through which they have come to us), but also, for all that you have given to this country and to the world, both with and without profit.

Charlie Mas said...

Bill Gates didn't say this. Why is it necessary to tell such lies?

Charlie Mas said...

Here's another rule for you: Don't believe things you find on the internet unless you can corroborate them with a credible source.

You must be right. I got suspicious when I read the words "car phone". By 2015,nobody had *car* phones anymore and most kids old enough to read this had their own cell phones.

Gotta love when people steal material and create a fake meme with a celebrity face on it. Still,it's good advice.

Who cares who wrote it....the message is great!

These are the same quotes that are on signs on the walls of Jimmy John's restaurants.

Wise words interesting comments. Perhaps Bill Gates was used due to being more easily recognized however posting that Charles Sykes actually wrote it would add even more credibility. Should not dilute the message. I think these are real truths and our young people need to accept this or learn the harder way by experience. I think the world is getting even tougher and more dangerous and political correctness is not preparing our young people for this. I may have read this anyway with the book source but Bill Gates was a good advertisement to get people to read it. Like the comment about searching the Internet and using critical thinking to descern the facts.

So true. Excellent advice. Get a job, any job. Learn what life is about and work to improve yourself. Nobody else can do it for you.

Barbara Fenkner said...


Thank you! I am 81 years old, grew up during the depression, earned my way through school,
started with nothing, and still managed to save a little, taught school for 30 years. I managed to raise the self esteem in children without lying to them. For the most part, I hope I was able to pass on a few other life values like acceptance, trust, love, and hope.
Idon't care to argue over who wrote what as far as these words of wisdom, it is enough that
they are guides through life. People will be happier if they adopt them, and hopefully, these attitudes will spread!

Doesnt matter who wrote it, i praise the person who shared it. Scrutinizing who wrote it is moving backward, missing the message.

Unfortunately, most young people nowadays grow up feeling entitled. To an easy life, easy money, easy everything.
This is because to many parents try to give their children " everything they didn't have." If only parents understood the value of letting them work for it, but don't realize until the damage is done.

HOW TO GET OVER MARRIAGE OR RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS:LOVE SPELL TO GET BACK YOUR EX BY DR. TRUST WEBSITE:https://ultimatespellcast3.wixsite.com/dr-trust

Hello to you all,i want to use this time to thank Dr. Trust for what he has done for me last week here ,my names are Isabella Molly Wyatt from Australia,i wanna tell you that me and my husband were together for three years without any trouble nor quarrel, we gave birth to a daughter during this three years and we were good until my husband started having affairs with his co-worker and then him started staying away from home all night and days and he was no longer the man i use to know,him later filed for divorce and ask me and my daughter to go out of his life , at this time i was carrying another child inside of me and now i was so frustrated and was in pains i tried telling him what him was doing was not right , but him wouldn't listen to any body,so i went to my mum house with my child and one day as i was browsing i came a cross a story about this Dr.Trust how he help a lady called Kimberly and i was touched with the story because it was almost same as mine, so i decided to contact him for help at first i was so so scared because many other spell casters that i have tried earlier took me for fool and went away with my money,but due to the line of the story i read about him and gave him my last try with faith and i told him all that has happened. He assure me that i will see result within two days and i told him that many others has told me this before, but nothing work out,him made a statement that many are called but few were chosen. which means him is not like others,so i said okay that was how him finally make my man comes back and it was like a surprise to me and today am a happy person. Now the most perfect thing is that he can’t spend a minute without seeing me or calling me. I gave Dr. Trust a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world,that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn’t done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging.

Too bad someone did not inform the parents who raised these entitled kids. These truths have been around very long time and are good information for all of us no matter what age. Thank you Bill Gates for compiling them in one place an sharing them. Hope more people will share them.

It is not from Bill Gates. Why post such an obvious lie. It has destroyed your credibility, assuming you ever had any.
