Unlike average people or even dropouts who normally get a C in class, smart people are used to doing things all by themselves and are trained to always get perfect grades with no failures as much as possible without copying from others. This is the exact opposite in the business world because in order for you to succeed in each of your business endeavours you must first fail so that you can learn from it and you must sometimes copy your competitor’s strategy and revise it to make your product or service way better.
See the big difference of how smart people are trained compared to just regular students who do not do so well in school. Of course, I am not saying that all average C students will get rich and that all smart students in class will not. Everything depends on the decisions that you will be making along the way the moment you graduate. There are a lot of average C students out there who are also failing to get rich so don’t get discouraged if you are smart. As a matter of fact, being smart is a gift and you should learn to use it for your greater advantage. Just remember to keep everything in moderation and learn to use your IQ to better improve your emotional intelligence for overall success not just in terms of finances!
