School is good for a lot of things but preparing us for the realities of life might not be one of them as the world gets more complicated to negotiate there are some lessons we wish we were taught in schools because when you learn them along your adult journey they're often more challenging to adapt to alright here are 15 things your teachers didn't teach you welcome to Alux.com the place where future billionaires come to get inspired if you're not subscribed yet you're missing out number one self-discipline and self-motivation after high school no one is going to check up on you the schooling sausage factory works all mass because it's set up with constant checks and balances punishment based on non-delivery means you never need to build up a sense of Self-discipline and self-motivation the reason you keep delivering at school is because someone is cracking that whip the rest of life isn't like this though there isn't a make-up test or a gentle reminder there's usually just failure and even losing a deal or a job to succeed you'll need to find your personal self-discipline and self-motivation more on this in point 15. number two how to sell whatever you do In life you need to know how to sell sell yourself sell a product sell a concept or an idea and school doesn't give you many opportunities to flex this muscle selling requires epic in the moment thinking and the ability to stay motivated even if you get a hard no the most important truth about sales is that nothing but a closed sale counts unlike school where your teacher might give you half points for somewhat correct answers you get no points whatsoever for a maybe Or i'll think about it in sales number three you are in control of your mind and thoughts there's so much group think or heard mentality in school that there's almost no time to develop your own system of controlling your thoughts impulses and mind scott d johnson of the university of richmond wrote an interesting paper explaining this phenomenon group think is an unhealthy decision-making pattern characterized by a high degree of Cohesiveness and a striving for consensus among the members of a decision-making group this might sound like a recipe for peace on earth but it has a negative effect too being motivated by fear or fitting in or people pleasing doesn't allow for critical thinking skills decision making skills small group communication skills and conflict management skills all of which are super valuable in life number four how to find funding From the minute you're thrust into the world you need money we're not talking about just a salary and living happily ever after finding funding to study or get credit from the bank for a house or to start a business is a complicated skill one that school entirely fails to teach knowing how credit works understanding credit scores and how to put together a business funding proposal are all so important Number five how to pitch your ideas effectively speaking of getting business funding something of critical importance is formulating your ideas in such a way that people understand and want to back them up this is important in all aspects of life whether you're working in a team on a work project or even just putting across your views at a neighborhood meeting it is critical to be able to get your message across comprehensively and With motivation you need these skills to succeed in life and all of this boils down to one nugget so stick around to find out the critical thing your teachers fail to teach you number six how to apply and interview for a job it's all well and good to have a great list of achievements when you leave school but if you don't have the skills and experience of going about job seeking then you won't get very far with those grades job seeking requires Knowledge of putting together a cv writing a relevant cover letter conducting a great interview and how and when to follow up oops well that's a fail for most schools in this department but don't worry we at alex's got you covered with our video 15 tips to crush an interview number seven how to calculate risks in school all risks are bad the polarized wrong and right isn't effective in the real world this is an extension of the Group think of schooling and we get that it's important to keep order when you have hundreds of children in one building but if you can't color outside the lines you'll never find out that mistakes can make a masterpiece in life there aren't always clear wrong and right answers we have to choose the lesser risk all the time getting comfortable with how to calculate this is overlooked in schools so adulthood can seem like an onslaught of difficult Situations that can be pretty overwhelming number eight money needs to be managed much of the rhetoric at school is around earning a big salary and then you'll be wealthy do well and secure yourself a job like a programmer or a lawyer and you'll have all the money you need what this fails to teach is that no matter how much money you have or don't have it's how you manage it that determines if you'll have enough Basic household budgeting a proper understanding of assets and liabilities and managing your wealth should go hand in hand when motivating kids to be a top earner number nine don't fear taxes when it comes to things that scare us it's easy to ignore them hoping it'll just go away taxes often fall into this category and they're explained by older generations to be complicated as if they're out to get you leaving many of us too petrified to look under the hood But taxes are inevitable they won't just disappear and taxes can be an advantage in your wealth learn to leverage taxes to work for you like the rich too for starters you can take a look at our video 15 ways rich people avoid paying taxes number 10 invest money don't just spend it on assets most kiddo conversations about money go like this when i get money i'm going to buy a house and a car and be rich and a teacher's financial Advice usually ends around the comment on remember that you have to pay your bond on your car loan before you can buy sunglasses or go on holiday none of these things are solid financial principles firstly a home with a mortgage and a car are not true assets they are liabilities if you're going to amass a household bond on your car loan you might find yourself stuck with only those two pieces of property for the rest of your life you might be able to Upgrade your house or car but you won't reduce your debt and increase your wealth portfolio and that's the problem number eleven you don't have to get a job you can start a business there's a strong push toward choosing a career something you can study and at the end of it pop out a doctor or pilot in most countries there isn't much of a focus on fostering an entrepreneurial spirit during school one that captures the imagination of the child to create Their own business product or service and truthfully it's a shame number 12 negotiation skills stemming from the culture of compliance that schooling requires there's little or no room to hone your negotiation skills deadlines are deadlines assignment deliveries are rigid and in exams there's no leeway between right and wrong that's all understandable it wouldn't be practical to mark 600 exams with all different right answers however This system lacks space for negotiation and debate team is not negotiating negotiating is taking two different stands on points and finding a middle ground for both parties this is a star making quality one that schooling fails to foster number 13. self-awareness is as important as general knowledge knowing who you are and what your beliefs and weaknesses are is important to succeed in all aspects of your life Being able to assess if your mindset is holding you back or how a decision affects or benefits you and your situation is important schooling doesn't teach us how to get to know ourselves and how that knowledge can actually make us stronger number 14 failure is inevitable in school failure is the end of the world it often means you can't progress we begin to see failure as a purely negative experience but failure is often The fastest route to the right answer if we're not afraid to learn from it author of leaders eat last simon sinek put it best when he said our struggles are the short-term lessons we learned to achieve long-term success number 15 daily habits maketh the person pulling off one epic assignment or cramming to ace an exam is impressive but it's not sustainable and too stressful as an approach to life the same goes for relationships being a Total jerk all year round and then giving your teacher a 200 spa voucher is the equivalent of being a valentine's day partner as routine as schooling thinks it is it isn't the average adult works 50 straight weeks a year with a two-week annual holiday and every month you have a big assignment it's called paying the damn bills if you don't have some easy daily habits that keep the basics in order your life will be an uphill struggle of feast and famine Total highs and crushing lows but you

here's your bonus how to solve problems The main thing that this whole list boils down to is that teachers fail to teach you problem solving parrot fashion learning no independent investigation and
