Bill Gates’ 11 Rules of Life

Here’s some advice Bill Gates recently dished out at a high school speech about 11 things they did  not learn in school. He talks about how  feel-good, politically correct teaching has created a full generation of kids with no  concept of reality and how this concept  sets them up for failure in the real world.

RULE 1
Life  is not fair – get used to it.

RULE 2
The  world won’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 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice president with car phone, until you earn  both.

RULE 4
If  you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn’t have tenure.

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 are. 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.
