Thank God you said your opinion.


Lemme state my own opinion,

University is a learning citadel, the real problem here is that, there is too much emphasis laid on university education in Nigeria. I believe individuals should choose , whether to continue to ply the journey of either going to the university, or learning trade and craftsmanship.


You can't just write the university institution off, like that. In the issue of living a fulfilled and happy life, no matter your purpose, you must chose a career path, and some career requires the university institution e.g med and co.


I believe what Nigeria needs in Orientation about life. Not the normal go to school , graduate , get employed and start popping out kids.

Billyoniare, Well OF COURSE, As is the case with solving almost any problem in the world, First, you need few right thinking individuals teaching the right things and asking the right questions (which some folks are already doing) before you solve stuff.

Here, It's always been hard shifting from inventor to copy cat, and I don't expect it to get any easier. We're still reaping the benefits today. You're talking about very different skill sets. Thank for your time as you're equally right.

There's one thing I got to discover about Nigerians.Each time our people get the opportunity to go and study abroad, some will go as either a profound Christian, or a Muslim, but the moment they spend few months over there, they will declare themself atheist. Owning to the culture of the country which they found themself.

Life is completely meaningless.....


Work 9-5, eat, fucck and die.....


If this is what we all do, does that mean we all have the same destiny?....


We work our asses out to get food which the earth gives us for free....

We were not created to serve fictitious money and governments.....


The painful thing is, everyone seems trapped in the matrix....

This is going to be very controversial especially since I haven't written anything 'in' this section, so my name can not precede me.

Before I make assertions, I need to appeal to you who is still in secondary and tertiary institution to keep an open mind, and take advantage of the new lines that I am going to write. My time is limited and quite expensive, but I feel I owe our Human Species an obligation of 'Awakening' them before it takes many decades of their lives, like it took me to figure out what this planet is about. I am sure our President does not know this truth, so you are in a much better place humanly.

And to the graduates of our Universities who are still finding their balance on a comfortable living. But to those who have 'made it', I am sure you see how empty the quest for our happiness has been elusive. Well, I have a message for all of you. And I am through with the message. grin

What did I end up saying ? Nothing, you have just wasted 2 minutes of your time, relative to how fast you read. The END.

Shall we begin after an END.

Life is not what you think, because what you think are functions of your experiences which is signatures of your exposures and affordable and available information you were told by parents, religious leaders, political leaders, school, friends etc. But let me tell you something friends.

Let us turn back the clock to the time of your birth and the date of your birth. WHAT DID YOU LEARN AS A CHILD, THAT WAS NOT EXPLAINED TO YOU ? I asked this, because of a subsequent question which should format your brain ? And that question is; What if ALL you were told are wrong ?


My point is this;
Anything you see is real to you. What you do not see, which you are told about, might just be wrong. Yes, and I mean from God to the meaning of life.

My advise is very simple.
If you have known how to read, write, do a little algebra then, note this basic truth. Our countries all of the world built their economies based on Government and Business men, building businesses for citizens to work and earn their salaries. BUT, in the next few years, robots and apps, will do virtually everything. The world has changed, so do not follow OUR templates. It will not work for you.

INFACT, you youngsters should view us with suspicion, not because we want to hurt you, but because we do not know what we are doing by raising you in a culture that expects you to work a 9-5 job. That is a scam.

This planet needs advancements and more life changers dropped out of schools than regular humans. So, do not let ANYONE tell you, how life is. Look within yourselves, look at the sky above you, take a trip to the Ocean beaches and look at the sand and ask yourself. Why am I here in this world ? Just to work, make money, love, reproduce and die ?

When you find an answer, to that Question, I will tell you what will happen.
You will begin a journey to study what is Earth and What you are and your mission. When you discover your mission, then, that is your course in the University and if no University offers that course, then you will know you are the only University to offer that course.

That is the journey you are here for. You are the University, in the Universe, existing as a Uni, which means One. One is what you are and One means GOD. Study yourself. MAN know THYSELF

Hello Mr billyonaire, I believe this message is for me. I'm still a student and I'm open minded. You mentioned that if I know my purpose and mission in life, that is when I will know the course to study. I think its not too late for me tho I'll be done with school pretty soon. And I don't mind going back to school if I can find my own course which will make me happy. My first question is, how do I know my purpose, my second question is, can you tell me courses or ideas that can make someone a future billionaire?? Mr billyonaire, I would be very grateful and happy if u reply this message. Thanks....

Sure, Agriculture and blockchain technologies are part of our future.

Look in the direction of your passion. What ever lights that fire in you when you dream of, is in the direction of your passion and it must in a way be helpful to humanity.

You can equally choose a new mission as long as it will be beneficial to as many people as possible. You can see how this ties up with your career of choice. With such cocktale, you are unstoppable by obstacle.

Thanks for the response billyonaire, I noticed I don't really have passion for a career. I did art and commercial together in secondary school. And I started studying science since I started reading your posts last year. I noticed that I'm very good in all, and any career would fit me. I just want you to recommend a particular career for me that can cause change to me,Nigeria and the whole world. I have met more than four prophets who keep prophesying that I should study law, I don't just know why. But I don't have passion for law. I just want to cause a change in my generation that will make me a billionaire and impact the lives of others. Just like bill gates,zuckerberg, Spiegel, bezos etc. I'm still young to chart the course of my life in the right direction..... Thanks so much Mr billyonaire. I'd be awaiting your response...

Law is a dying career. There are apps everywhere now doing the job of lawyers. Besides, the court systems are going to come live as all court proceedings will be carried out remotely. Those prophets are stupid. Look in the direction of your passion.

Great. I also noticed most of these courses are best studied abroad. Its so painful for people like us who can't afford it now. I have tried getting undergraduate scholarship to no avail, there are mostly postgraduate scholarships. Maybe I'd just sponsor myself to the UK, I don't want to know where the money will come, but it must come $30,000 is no small money for school fees, but its worth the investment...

Quality Education costs a lot of money and it is the only thing that actually should cost money for foreign students whose countries are governed by idiots. It is free at Western Countries to go to school, and they even pay you salaries for going to school in countries like Austria. In USA and other western countries, you can get a loan to pay fees and pay your transport and feed, then you pay back when you are working. But Nigeria is as dangerous as it is because most people are not educated, and the few that are educated are mediocres when compared to level that the world is growing.

The strata of bright Nigerians, are those who either studied abroad or those who are here but totally cut-off themselves from the Nigerian mindset and set out to succeed against all odds.

You should choose which best fits your dream and your purpose in life. When you realize what you want to achieve, you will hardly sleep without waking up to think of how to achieve it. That is the driving force of creation, and we are co-creators who had to come here to dwell in physical bodies to be able to build nice things here on the lower denser plane of existence.

I hope I am able to help someone today.

God bless you billyonaire. You have surely helped me with this posts. Most of our idiot politicians send their children to good schools so their children can continue ruling us in the future. This gotta change, its so painful that Nigerian youths and teenagers are not seeing life from this perspective. Can you advice me on how to get scholarship or any good way to study abroad for undergraduates??

Yes, but depends on your life mission. I have sent a couple of people to study at London. I think on IT and Business related IT studies, Aptech does that. After secondary school, all you need do is 2yrs or 2 and a half at Aptech and you get express admission to some universities in UK, Dubai and I think Mauritius. It is the shortest cut out of the regular dumb mindset. There are other prep schools with affiliation to other schools abroad. Make that your home work and take your life into your hands. The Gods have done their job, you are here now, do something to change the world, and make sure it is something you can make money off to keep it running. Do not act like a victim like the rest of the population. If something is hard, make it a challenge to succeed. No God will help you until you exhaust your options then they will relay their direction and guidance through intuition, dreams and thought perception.

I am telling you these because I may no longer be able to come to Nairaland as often as I used to, the new project that the Universe has directed me is yet the most tasking one, and it intends to save millions and affect a certain sector in Lagos, so I will be dedicating more time to designing the concepts, modules and implementation as well as administration. I must give it all I have got mentally.

Stay driven by that passion for what your dream is.

Thank you so much billy. U r awesome and inspiring. Aptech is for IT students which I'm not one of them. I'm currently looking for how to pay 550k for Cambridge A/level exam. I believe I can make money to send myself to the UK. This is 21st century, I have been working on this since last year and I know I'd soon achieve it. I wish you the best in your new project the universe has given you. How can I also receive message or project from the universe

When we talk about education, a lot of people think it's about getting a university education.
Of course, there are 3 forms of Education, formal, informal and non-formal education.
And whatever education we have is a key to open the door of success for us. I illustrated more about this here��.
Is Education The Key To Success?

(https://extraordinarywomanblog.com/2020/10/03/is-education-the-key-to-success/)

The truth is that there are some doors which may not open if we are not prepared (through any form of education).
Always think about it in this way… when you are handed a �, you use it to open a door �. Education hands you the key � to open a door �of success.

Always note that life determines what you see in your house when you open the door but the most important thing is that a key has been added to you.
