Anyone who knows me knows that I love quotes and aphorisms. I collect them. So I really enjoyed stumbling across this quote by John Rohn in the book My Philosophy for Successful Living.
“…formal education gets you a job, but self-education is what makes you rich!
The importance of self-education and investing in your own personal development is something that you won’t learn about in high school or even college. However, I can’t stress enough that this is a critical aspect of success.”
I couldn’t agree more.
(Note: The book from which this quote is taken emphasizes financial success a bit too much for my taste since I define success in life far beyond monetary gain. But the quote applies to success in all aspects of life.)
