School is a business, and its business is to train students to go do what the system wants, not what the student wants, either the student is still in school or after school, and that which the system wants, is to become an employee, that’s the business of school. Even people who claim to do entrepreneurship courses or business courses in college all end up managerial employees for the rich people’s companies after they leave school. Moreover, entrepreneurship taught in college is a waste of time and money.
The reason why a school-mentality cannot start a business is their never taught how to start their own business in school, but only taught to manager rich people’s businesses after they leave school, that’s why I said they become managerial employees. They are never taught in school to mind their own business, but to mind other people’s businesses, in fact a few people like the rich people.
The other reason is, they’re afraid of failure, afraid of losing some money, simply because in school their taught that to fail, to make mistakes is being stupid, its being a loser, so this fear of losing, of looking stupid if they failed, stops them more from starting that business even if they think about starting a business. Emotions of fear are stronger than the emotions of winning. That’s why employees prefer security than personal freedom, and freedom comes if you are willing to face your fears and willing to fail; no wonder people with school mentality prefer job security because their taught in school to be safe takers, and not risk takers like entrepreneurs are.
The other reason is a job or paycheck takes care of their financial life for example employees who work for the government feel their safe financially because the government takes care of their financial life through a paycheck and a pension account plan, so for them starting a business to make some money for themselves is not that important.
As long as we keep teaching people to become employees, people aren’t as likely to leave their jobs, or start their own business or company, which actually has made so many innocent lives trapped in the rat-race employment process. To become an entrepreneur, is to take control. To become an employee is to work for control.
These are some of the reasons those we call the school educated minds fail to start their own businesses, but leave their financial life to be taken care of by a few people for example the government or an employer they work for or they will work for after they leave school and get that job.
