Most people blindly believe a degree and permanent paycheck are the holy grail to achieve financial security and stability. But We all can agree that economy is very dynamic and complicated more than ever. We are witnessing how a new financial reality is forming, but most people are not prepared for it. For this reason, we need to start to invest in financial literacy as much as possible. To build our confidence and take control of our finance. This is the first article in a series of financial education articles. Here you will discover; Why is formal education prevents you from achieving financial freedom? Why is financial literacy critical? And how to make your first steps in financial literacy.
Traditional Education System Is A Scam
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM?
“Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school. It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education. ”– Albert Einstein
We spend a large portion of our time and resources in education because we believe it will give us greater opportunities, money, and a better life. But in fact, the education system has not been created to serve our best interest or to make us rich. Therefore they don’t teach us financial literacy, how to create different income streams, nor give us the tools to develop as entrepreneurs or investors.
It is not a coincidence or mismanagement of education institutions. The core purpose of the educational system is to create employees. The first public schools were established in the 18th century during the industrial revolution. Their only purpose was to train the workforce for the factories. And this purpose has never changed since then.
Teachers that hired for formal education are highly educated, but they own the mindset of the poor. They lack financial literacy, they do not have real experience generating money from business or investments, and their survival depends only on the paycheck. With all our educators’ good intension, they can’t teach us how to be rich or prepare us for economic changes.
The obvious question is why nobody intervened to make a change in the educational system?
The government manages the educational system and dictates what to teach. That gives the government complete control over the citizens, to keep producing another generation of hard-working taxpayers. Those who run the government are highly educated, but they are lack financial education. For this reason, their only way to run the countries economy is to print more money and continuously raise taxes.
DOES EDUCATION IS WORTHLESS?
Education is important because it creates great professionals like; scientists, doctors, lawyers, accountants, engineers, etc. A great education is differentiating between poor countries with depressed citizens to developed countries that offer great opportunities and a high standard of life. But in the information era in the 20th century, we live according to the employee’s role book in the industrial age;
- Go to school
- Be an A+ student
- Get a job in big corporations with a high salary, great pension plan, and benefits.
Although education is important, the educational institution is influenced by many interests. Hence we cannot afford ourselves to trust what we have learned in school, even if you are a highly paid PRO. Because employment is deeply affected by economic changes and evolving technology. And Corona Virus is the living proof that no employee is immune to its consequences. So everyone’s main mission should be to invest in financial literacy as soon as possible.
What Is Financial Literacy?
Financial literacy is a combination of financial education and skill set which allows managing financial resources effectively.
why financial literacy is important ?
“If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.”-Warren Buffett
The point is not how much money you have in your bank account, but what you do to make your money work for you.
There are endless high paid movie stars, sports players, normal people who earn a high salary, and those who win the lottery or receive heritage. But due to a lack of financial education, they lose their money and become poor again sooner or later.
Financial literacy is extremely important for the following reasons:
- You will know what a real asset is and what is a liability. With that, you will be able to identify all the liability that is classified as assets that ripping you off for years.
- You will begin to read and manage your own financial statement, it would show you why there is nothing left from your salary and how you can fix it.
- You will never take financial advice from bankers and financial advisors who earn their money from commissions. You will find a real financial advisor that lives by what he preaches and make you rich.
- You will make money work for you and not waste your time work for money.
- you will start to think and act like rich people.
All these examples are just the tip of an iceberg.
