To sum up, he disagrees with people being influenced or motivated by others to do something he feels they shouldn't be doing, even though we've all heard of successes, not just in the bodybuilding realm but in other areas, singers, actors, who all pursued their dream when nobody else thought they would or could make it in that field.
I see this as him telling everyone that at the age of 23 or whatever, he knows what is best for them. I know plenty of people without degrees who are successful. One of the directors of my company left school at 16. I put it down to the arrogance of youth.
