March 11, 2010 | Marcus Varner | Leave a comment If you’ve spent significant time online, you’ve likely come across hundreds of advertisements promising secrets, pills, berries, powders, workout tapes, or seminars that can turn you into the ideal physical specimen. You will be attractive, confident, adored, and, therefore, insanely happy for the rest of your life. I’m here to burst that bubble right here and now. Fitness does not make people happy. Education does. What will really make you desirable to the opposite sex and successful in the eyes of your peers is education, plain and simple. That’s right, college degrees and all the things that come with them. According to AP Lifestyle, women listed intelligence, employment, thoughtfulness, home ownership, and car ownership among the top ten things they look for in a man. On iVillage.com, men listed stability and sanity as the traits they most look for in women. Interestingly enough, these are all attributes that come from seeking higher degrees, not from getting ripped. Therefore, it would stand to reason that the best thing men and women can do to feel confident, appreciated, and accomplished is to seek higher degrees. Bachelor degree-holders enjoy higher salaries and greater levels of job security and home ownership. They are able to navigate the world confidently, knowing they are members of the top 25 percent of the population. So don’t throw your money away on fitness products that won’t bring you the things you want. Invest in education and get the confidence, career satisfaction, adoration, love, and all that happiness you so crave.
