Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School






This  should be posted in all schools and work  places.

Love  him or hate him, he sure hits the nail on the head  with this! Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a  High School about 11 things they did not and will  not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good,  politically correct teachings created a  generation of kids with no concept of reality and  how this concept set 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 $60,000 a year right out of high  school. You won't be a vice-president with a car  phone until you earn both.

Rule 4
:  If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you  get a boss.

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 thought  you were. 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.

If you agree, pass it  on.
If you can read this - Thank a  teacher!
