Be a policeman

Hi Mr. Tan
I am turning 17 and starting my first year in Poly soon. Will I be able to lead a comfortable life in the future with the pay of a diploma holder? 
Because of the high cost of living, I do not think it is possible for me to own a flat . 
Many people strongly emphasize on further studies to get a degree and earn a higher pay. However, I do not like studying.
I like to sign on with Singapore police force or the military directly after my studies. Many people told me I will have no future being in the uniformed service and if I would find it difficult to work outside after leaving the uniformed service. But my passion is in this field. What should I do?

I encourage yoU to follow your passion, and be a policeman or soldier. The advantage is that other people do not like the job, so you have less competition.
If you focus on the job and develop the skill, you can do well. Anyone who has special skill in a job will be appreciated. Do not worry that people are on top of you because of a paper, because when it comes to the crunch, there are many people with paper, but few will real skills.
Never be discouraged and develop a negative attitude. Always be positive, and you will do well.
Wish you all the best for the future.

Great. A breathe of fresh air, a young Singaporean taking an unusual step to be a policeman.
Now, we have to hire foreigners to man the Auxillary Police positions, with the shrinking populations, very soon the SAF have to employ foreigners as mercenary soldiers to defend our country. What a scary thought.
