Education - Let the Learning Begin!
You've probably heard it since you were little, 'get a good
education and you'll go far in life.' Maybe you used to
wonder how truthful your relatives were when they said those
words to you. Maybe now you know or wish you had listened
to them a little harder. Whatever the case may be, it's
undeniable that education is vital to your success for many
Income is most likely the first reason that comes to
your mind. Without a solid education, you will probably not
be able to find the best paying job to support you and your
family. Yes, it's correct that with hard work and
persistence, people have been able to get great jobs
without an education, but those cases are uncommon. You
need to attend school to truly be looked at as a prime
candidate for employment - no question.
A college education will be able to prepare you effectively
for employment. You will learn skills and acquire the
essential information about your major which will lead you
right toward the job you want. So, don't eliminate this
critical step because education will be the thing that
serves you with a secure future.
Another reason you will want to receive a good education is
for basic writing and conversation skills. If you want to
come across as being confident in all situations, you will
need book smarts. Street smarts can only get you so far- so
don't depend on them. Writing letters, answering
correspondence and speaking on the telephone are all aspects
of jobs that you will need education for. You learn basic
math and writing skills through education and without
these, you won't be able to show yourself to others as
confidently as you desire.
Education will make you self-assured because you'll be able
to present yourself wherever you go. From college debates to
formal affairs, you'll know what's current in the world,
how to speak about it and how to make great, interesting
conversation- all because of education.
Sometimes, education comes with a large price tag.
Tuition, books and living expenses are very expensive when
it comes to college. You can always loans, grants or a
scholarship to help you, so don't despair. If you want an
education bad enough, you'll get one. It doesn't matter
the size of your bank account, let your drive pull you
toward the education you so desperately need. Don't settle
for average and keep learning all the way up and
throughout your senior years. Education shouldn't end
after college, it should continue it so you can constantly
improve yourself and your mind.
