The mistake in becoming what you study is that too many people forget to mind their own business. They spend their lives minding someone else’s business and making that person rich.
To become financially secure, a person needs to mind their own business (Have your own business- where you are not required physically.)
Financial struggle is often the result of people working all their lives for someone else.
