I have come to learn that education NEVER stops. When you stop learning, you start dying. We have all been intimately designed to constantly be sifting and sorting through information (our brains) and then using that information to hopefully build a better life for ourselves.
I see a lot of people chasing money and it evades them. I heard once from a very successful business man that to become wealthy, you must first chase knowledge and eventually money will start chasing you. If you do it the other way around, you will always be frustrated and broke.
We are living in a world much different then when I grew up. I was told to go to school, get an education and go to work for a company for as long as I could and I would be ok. That was the biggest lie EVER! I did all of those things and ended up settling for much less then I was capable of. The truth is, the only way you can get ahead in today’s day and time is to work for yourself.
Sure there are people that will slave away in sales or some other noble profession and make a great living. I have to ask though. At what cost? The cost of not being around to see your children grow up? The cost of a marriage that falls apart because the two are working so hard they don’t have time for each other?
There has been a huge paradigm shift in our society. It is NOT business as usual. There are entrepreneurs out there creating livings from doing what they are passionate about.
The bottom line is… New skill sets equals new money. Old and outdated skill sets equals NO money. Your choice.
