26 Powerful Life Skills That Never Become Extinct

by Rajesh Gotan

All over the world, great emphasis is given to Academia. We directly relate it to our chances of success – to create wealth, fame and position in the society. All around us, we see Grades, Percentages and Scores. However, we all have seen exceptions around us where people have touched great heights without having a proper academia. If we closely observe, in most of the cases we find that such people had some “Specific Skills” and “Great Life Skills”.

“Academia may fail very often, but specific and life skills work”
