"Know your limitation" is an adage that folks are not always attuned to. In almost every form of human endeavour, we see people going way beyond their natural capacity to perform. Talent is of course one of the keys to success, but experience remains the underlying principle in all of the success stories that we all read about, or see on the flickering screen, be it the wide(movies) or the small(TV, computer).
Success as another adage states (paraphrasing) has many nurturers, but failure is an orphan. Failure almost always happens when people do not follow their inner voice that says: be fore you leap the great divide, before you cross the Rubicon, before you step into the railroad tracks, it is always a good idea to stop... look.. listen, or you will fall into the abominable abyss, drown in the raging river, or get run over by the transiting train.
The permutations of limitation are so innumerable, that despite talent and experience, human endeavour and the success or failure that goes with it should never be measured by the toll (human or material) it exacts, but on the soul (human, non-material) it impacts.

I went to college, but failed. I went to ITT Tech, but failed. I'm asking a simple question: Is college a requirement for success in the modern world?

Genuine question & one I haven't had time to read up on to find out. Sounds good in theory - why did it fail? Could it ever work?
