I wish all your dreams come true. But you should remember enjoying good life does not come only from ones achievements but also requires his contribution to the enhancement of the quality of life of the society in which he lives. I never believed that education is just a way to get a job. Education is really a way to remake yourself. So, while studying science, engineering or management I would advise you to know about society, ethics and societal needs, so that you can target your education goals to the benefit of people.
