The engineer wasn't as talented or naturally great, Bill Gates was.

That's the difference between the world's abnormals exceptionals) and normal people and minuses like myself.

Basically, virtually most of the population couldn't fail and become mega successful like Gates, we aren't gifted, so I don't think its nice to look down on the engineer. I'm sure he worked hard with what he had.

Lots of angry poeple here huh I don't see this to do with the idea going college to study of certain subject need to learn physic for example but many course avaible at uni can actually be learnt outside of it which thing I thought they were trying to point out but some do use this to excuse them self when infact they are just being lazy funny thing is poeple only try to I trust thing once instead of try to see it from diffrent point of view while having degree does help doesn't mean you are any better than person with no degre but years of experience within that field of work but of course some subject do need to taught within that type of environment best to find out best way to approach the work wish to get in to I've failed uni but was my own fault now I devoplment games all I am saying something have more than just one of approaching them

Ok, I don't know about this, but fact is that he finished primaries, high school and went to Harvard where he dropped out because he at that time already had success. He was (and still is) brilliant in mathematics and scientific subjects - he even made a company while being in high school.

When that is said then sure, you can surely achieve great things even with some failed exams. "Follow your dreams" is such a kliche, but it is still the way to a happy life. And in some countries it is much easier to succeed than in others. However, when **** hits the fan, it all come down to hard work in one way or another - "Brilliance consists of 10% inspiration and 90% transpiration (sweat..)"

So don't use this post as an excuse to be a lazy prick. Gates wasnt.

I always see these posts and they pretty much just glorify failing. Pretty much like "oh I failed/flunked and now I am the richest man on Earth".Never anyone mentions that they had an idea or passion that got them there by still working.

Contrary to popular belief, Gates did not drop out because he was too dumb and failing classes, he was doing fine but had better business opportunities arise. People that take him as an inspiration that you don't need to be smart to succeed are foolish, he was smart enough to be in university and had good business sense. Basically, don't drop out thinking you're on the road to being a millionaire.

Not all of us can be computer software geniuses. I barely passed my A+ and Computer design classes because I didn't understand it, it was boring, and I hated it
