What have you been learning from the university of life? Oh, sorry to confuse you with my question. If you haven’t encountered this expression yet, allow me to explain it in simple ways.
The phrase the ‘university of life’ does not exist at all. You cannot find it anywhere because it's not an academic institution or school. If people say this phrase, they are referring to their ‘life experiences’. In other words, it’s about a person who became wise or successful in a chosen field without taking any formal education or did not use books because he or she has experienced a lot of something in the past that made him or her successful today.
You’ve probably heard news or even met someone who’s been from the university of life. I know a lot of people who didn’t have any formal degree or MBA from a university or college, yet they were able to manage success in their chosen business and career. Perhaps, their will power and determination have triggered them to be risk-takers and confident. Aside from that, they were able to use their passion as ‘bread and butter’.
Here are some examples of this expression;
How about you? Have you experienced something positive (or even unpleasant in your life) and were able to use it to become a better person and succeed in something? Please share them below. Thank you in advance!
