  1. There is not much more context for me to necessarily add to this topic, so thank you all for posting here, I am highly delighted to have such supportive and proper feedback ! I am utmost grateful !
  2. @Elisabeth It is not possible in Sweden to enter university without a high school degree. And to enter a good university requires the highest grades as well. I am against the fact that I will have to invest a lot of my time in high school to enter a good university, and only then, access the juicy stuff. But still, I gotta spend some time in the university to get some results. If I would not be supported financially over the three years, I would probably not be thinking about doing any of this. Habits are some big problems for me, I managed to delete all my video games without much problem, and that was the first step of this journey. I do believe that I could achieve the best version of myself gradually, as I gradually remove the bad habits. People on the internet such as Leo is very good at making you distinguish between the good and the bad. Taking action is not very hard for me to do at this point, but I need to take action on very certain things for this to work. Maybe I will get some better idea in the future, but every fiber of my body says that going to high school is not a good idea, at least not now. But the problem is indeed that my desition may be irreversible, but in terms of gathering knowledge, I may easily make up for it. Things like The Great Courses Plus really opened my mind to the possibility. The whole point with this topic was to get some feedback from the right people, which is what I lack nowadays, it may stab me in the back later on. Edit: Thanks for posting !
  3. @cosmicrays @Captain Flint Thanks for posting ! In either case, I will have to suffer through a lot of the unnecessary stuff before I could even dream of pouring time into these indeed juicy opportunities. But since Im taking the path of spirituality, thus minimalism; do I really need to attend a good university to satisfy the need of 1000$ every month (with spare time included to a large extent)?
  4. Thanks again for the post ! I have been growing up alongside the internet for a very long time. Besides school, this would be my only source of knowledge. Of course, as a young child, I did tend to recognize video games as the prime activity that would conquer the majority of my spare time, but the internet would be a reliable gateway. With time I got to explore the platforms of the internet, mainly Youtube, and with further time, explore the content within it as well. To be honest, Tai Lopez' videos were the ones that started to open my eyes to question the education system, before that, I was too blind to even think about criticizing such an obvious, obligatory thing as school, even though I learned a lot from Educational videos on Youtube daily. For me to see the education system in such a way as I mentioned earlier, and therefore not attend school, requires some mindful thinking with a lot of contexts, such as making up for all that is lost when I don't go to school. In other words, Im sacrificing school for something, pursuing my dreams. But I need to build a strong foundation for my plans, which Is composed of the knowledge I get from the internet. I find the internet way more efficient than school when it comes to acquiring knowledge, and besides from that, school has not much more to give. The internet could transform any kid from scratch to a billionaire, but the kid gotta be able to value entrepreneurship more than some damn video games.
  5. Thank you for the post ! I will be aiming to earn a practical sum of money that in any way, would give me the most amount of spare time in the future. I guess I would be able to survive with having 1000$ in my pockets every month, but how would I get to that point without working a day job? I would not sacrifice the time and effort to pursue a diploma or bachelors degree if that would only give me a better payment for a career that still requires a lot of my time. I want to draw a line between money and my time, but not ending up homeless by doing so. I'm aiming for a practical minimalistic lifestyle, as we all know that enlightenment comes not externally. This is a short-term plan because if I use my time wisely, the financial situation might improve at my own phase. My passions will always be pursued, and I would indeed be happy to find a way to make the money out of it. A problem persists in that almost everybody that stands close to me dislikes my choice, the reason being that I'm missing out on the many things that school has to offer, and rationally, that I could pursue my dreams while attending the senior high school. Is this a valid reason in the context of my plans? Thank you !
  6. Hello, I am 16 years old and I live in Sweden. Self-actualization and spirituality have sparked my interest ever since I started exploring that part of youtube, and here, I feel very comfortable. Everything I've learned since the beginning of this journey has always taken me steps away from school. During the summer break, I stumbled upon Leos channel, and he really took the cake, thus boosting my awareness and wisdom. High-school is voluntary in Sweden, and with open eyes, I got a clear picture of how unnecessary it would be for me to be a part of this education system. Now that there are no laws I have to face, the only thing to face is a choice for three years spare time, or heavy interferences with the path of spirituality and my daily lifestyle of self-actualization. All I will miss, that books and internet lectures will not give me is the diploma. Three years is a lot of time to for self-actualization and inquiry, but after these years I will have minimized chances of being hired to work for somebody. I plan to develop some online business that would save me time and energy for the precious money I will need in the future. I will grow tired of working 9-5 at some point anyway. Should I pursue my goals, or should I go for that diploma? Thank you !
