This is someone's response to a claim that yeshiva doesn't teach secular subjects and thus limits its graduates' earning potential.
"Your data (education vis-à-vis income levels) may be applicable to the secular (wider) general public but the facts in Chabad CLEARLY contradict your premise!!
Chabad graduates seem to clearly have a special bracha!Most wealthy Lubavitchers (the overwhelming majority) have had limudei kodesh ONLY!and have far exceeded their ENLIGHTENED peers who took secular to get ahead!!LOY LACHACHOMIM LECHEM! It's G-d, its Mazal and its destiny, (its bitachon too).If you are motivated, hard working, you make a concerted effort (aka HISHTADLUS or KELI) the evidence is all around you. All those shleppers who role in to shul at 1PM have themselves alone to blame! Not the system! You can't pick and choose from the system, and expect for it to work for you! The system makes many demands from a chossid (if you keep these demands, you will find bracha and hatzlacha).The demands include:Shmiras hasdorim =basic life skillsMivtzoyim =enriches the characterLimud nigla veChasidus =adds some healthy perspectiveLearning in general =sharpens the mindMerkaz shlichus, Tahalucha, CGI, etc.Daily Chitas Rambam etc.All of the above goes a long way towards developing CHARACTER, MIND AND A SKILLS SET to excel in the REAL WORLD! THE VAST MAJORITY OF MY “kodesh-only” friends (who followed the above PERSCRIPTION ARE DOING VERY WELL!THEY UNDERSTAND THAT $$$$$$ REQUIRES A KELI (RUCHNI AND GASHMI) BUT NOT TO OVERDO IT!! "
