Default How do you guys climb out of the poverty cycle?

If you are only a diploma graduate with no special skills?

At the moment, you are unable to upgrade yourself to a degree due to financial reasons. However, possibly next year, you are able to.

I am taking up driving lessons as a possible skill in the future next month and/or possibly housing agent license in september.


What would you do?

Eg tech courses from udacity

First, you learn how to drive and become a delivery van driver. Then you save and own your van and set up your own delivery business. Then you increase from one van to two vans, three vans. Soon you will be a big tycoon in the logistics business. You will become very rich and retire at 70. At 71, you die and leave all your wealth to your children. All these years, you worked so hard with not much rest and with so much stress. So, you want to be rich?

Good and right answer.

You would have achieved something many people can only dream about and lived a fulfilling life.

I can see some people are so afraid dying from hardwork that they prefer to be lazy bums and wait for hand outs.

If you read the local forums you will notice many singaporeans are happy to be lazy bums eg ://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/ntu-304/how-find-intern-ship-easily-5320036.html

I just wanna comment on this part.

It's very sickening to know that children, who even grow up to adults at age 30 plus, still live off their parents. Being jealous of rich kids are one thing, but knowing of people who are just lazy bums and take money from their parents is just sickening to me.

Don't know how it's related to this. But for the above situation, can you really say you were a success in raising your child if you know that he or she had to always depend on you, even when he or she is an adult.
