Many of us were taught to be good, get good grades, go to a good school, and get a job...and the doors of the world will open up to you.

...Getting good grades didn't get me free.
...Going to UCLA for undergrad didn't get me free.
...Going to Stanford for my MBA didn't get me free.
...Getting a good paying job did not get me free.
