I’ve already mentioned that one of the most important preconditions for success is to know what you like doing most. This is followed by hard work and specialization.
I think it would be good if the state, in addition to free education, also offered children free obligatory sessions with a psychoanalyst. This would enable them to get to know themselves better and make it easier for them to decide what they want to do when they grow up. In spite of this I encourage all those who have made a wrong decision to specialize in the area that is closest to your heart. That is the only way you will end up truly successful and happy. So go to amazon.com and see what books there are in relation to the area you are interested in. Start surfing the Internet and looking at books in libraries. If you persist you will sooner or later begin to stand out from the average.
The same applies to those with a university degree. At university, you learn all sorts of stuff you later forget. But if you like doing something, the knowledge you acquire will stay with you forever.
So start right away.
