It is of essence that you acquire the needed education in this information and technology age if you sincerely dream of surviving the changing time.
Here for you are the things you need to do.
Learn A Trade, Acquire A Skill And Rule Your World
If you want success, go out of your comfort zone and go work for it or better still, get the job done. Why should you expect others to work and sweat it out and all you do is this act of begging for change? You do not need to beg for survival when you have your brain intact and within you are all that you needs to make a life out of the circumstances that is confronting you.
“Achieving greatness is not a day’s job neither is it an avenue for lazy minded people.”
People will never respect you if all you do is beg for every little thing that might bring you no glory. If you want respect; kill within you that begging spirit. It might only take you for a while and even if you succeed at it, without any given skill, you would always go back to that zero level.
If you want to rule your world, learn a trade you have a desired passion for. It is in learning a trade that you will discover the process that will help you actualize your dream. And when you keep on reinventing yourself within your line of trade, you will always have the best in all you do. Whatever you do with a determined heart is what will always bring you the desired fulfillment of purpose.
Learning a trade and acquiring a skill is what will make you rule your world. You can never rule your world when you have no skill within you. Your talent can be developed into your skill. In whatever you have as a gift, learn to develop it to make a life out of it. When you develop the gift in you, you will go places. Your gift is to make you a fortune and this is made possible when you give your all towards developing it.
The art of acquiring education in your chosen field will ever be an added plus to your personal development. School education is good but self-education is essential. What you learnt at school might not give you all that is needed to become successful in life like having self-education. When you are deep in self-educating yourself; that is where you will discover that which are called to do.
In acquiring a skill, add to it education and you can combine to it a self-education which is what will give you the needed advantage over others and will make you be above edge with others if you are to compete. Skill is needed if you are not to be stranded in life. When you have what to do, you will not only overcome poverty, you will at all-time have that which will help you sustained your yet unborn generation.
Pay For Every Knowledge You Seek
If knowledge is offered for FREE, my humble advice is; please do not seek for such. Everything that is free will give you no value. The mindset that you will give to that which is free will be that which you will never value. It is often said that easy come, easy go. When what you want becomes easy for you to acquire, then there would never be any real value of appreciation for such things. The true worth of anything is in painstakingly acquiring it. When it cost you something to acquire, then you will live to appreciate it with all the amount of pleasantry.
“Free knowledge will never make anything meaningful to you.”
When you pay for that which you seek, you will have value for it. But the moment you have the free mindset mentality; it will go the way of easy come, easy go. Entering one ear, and leaving the other ear as it comes without holding back anything.
Actually, knowledge we all know is power and power comes with energy. Power is not what is to be joked with. It takes time to acquire power and so is the knowledge that comes with it. And real power is not acquired for free.
Sincerely as it is a proven fact that knowledge is power which is a true saying; to make knowledge worth its salt, you have to study till you get it stuck inside your head. The process that defines that power in you is when you are able to utilize the knowledge you have towards solving a given problem. And the knowledge that will enable you solve such problems are not acquired for free.
In acquiring a given knowledge in any area of life, you need to give in your all. You actually need to deny yourself of so many pleasures of life. You need commitment and determination if you should actualize the desired goal embedded in that area you seek to have knowledge of.
To make progress out of life, I mean that true process of growth is in constantly acquiring self-knowledge that is learning till the day you make your last breathe. Constant learning will open you up to new discoveries that will help developed your mind and bring about that necessary change that is needed to make a real life progress.
Sincerely to make the best out of what will give you a life time value just as acquiring knowledge is, do not seek for it for free. Even if it is free offer to give something in exchange, that is what will do you good and will put a value to that which you will acquire.
Basic Skills Are Mastered
When you define your dream and what you have passion for, the next level is to acquire the basic skills needed to excel in that area of endeavour. The acquisition of the basic skills in your chosen endeavour is what will give you an undue advantage time and time over against any other odd. The basic skills needed to excel in your area of endeavour should never be compromised for anything. It is what should be valued because when such is mastered that it will take you places.
“All you need to master your world, is to acquire the basic skills that is trending within your desired passion.”
Though the process of mastering the basic skills needed to excel could be turbulent and would require a pain staking effort which you alone would be the one to undertake and go with it all alone. In as much as this would be, you should be the one to do it all alone without giving in to the pains that it would bring. If you let others do it for you, then you should remember that such will always become the person who will always leads over you. In this regards, do not seek others to do it for you if you want to excel and be above your peers. Remember that if one learns on your behalf, that knowledge would never be that of your property but that of the other person. And if you make the other learn on your behalf, such might not give to you all that you will ever need to succeed in life. Let this be at the back of your mind that in this changing world, you need basic skill to win over every challenges of life. And when you have a basic skill, it wouldn’t be hard to have food on your table.
When acquiring a skill, let the skill be that which is in trend. Do not go for the basic skill that is outdated but should be that which is in trend. In our current dispensation, technology is the in-thing. The basic skill in any area of technology will do you good rather than learning a skill that will not benefit you at this changing time. A skill when mastered is what will give you an edge. And when you keep reinventing yourself in that area of the acquired skill, you will become relevant at all time. There is no skill that is too hard to learn. If you must learn a skill, it should be that which you have passion for. It is your passion for any basic skill that will make you acquire it without feeling bore about it. When you learn a skill that you so desire, do not discard this; it is what will keep you on top of your game later on in life. When you mastered the basic skills, be in tune with those within that endeavour top gain more. And also have a mentor you look up to in that area of endeavour. When you have a mentor, you will go far in acquiring the in-depth knowledge without stress. This in itself is a sure route towards learning new discovery that will help you excel in that business.
The More You Learn, The More You Discover
Every stage in life is a learning process. The more you learn, the more you have control over your self-esteem. And the more you can withstand any pressure based on the knowledge you have inside of you. If you must go to the battle field of life, it is what you acquire through self-learning that will stand by you to fight on till victory becomes yours.
“Wining in life depends on what you know. And what you know is what will deliver you in every moment of disperse.”
As long as you are alive, learn all that you need to learn. The more you learn, the more you discover and that adds a value to your life and makes you a better person anytime, any day. What you know is what will guide you victory and nothing else. Learning should be made a habit and should be made fun while learning.
Discovering made in life is through learning. And though it is painful to learn, but it is what will give you an edge over other. Those who learn new things discover new things and are those who have breakthrough. When you learn, life becomes flexible and the joy you found in realizing that you have what to contribute is amazing. Do not stop learning as long as you are alive. When you stop learning, it is said that you start dying.
Make learning a lifestyle for that is the only way that you will enjoy the process of it. Life we should be aware that it belongs to those who learn new things. In this changing world, we should be limited by what we know and made boast of it as if we are living in centuries back. At all times, there is something new to be learnt. And if we opened our mind to learn, we will always overcome that which is limiting us.
Do not take learning to be that which will delay your time but rather as that which you need to make things happen. When learning, learn what will add a meaning to your life and not that which will destroy you being and make you irrelevant to yourself and the society. What is relevant to your growth should be that which you should learn. When you learn what is relevant, you enrich yourself and your spiritual well-being.
Learning should be a process you take to build your life. You should just listen to hear say but should also find time to discover things which will only come forth when you give in to learning. If you want to discover your world and make a better life living it to the fullest, than read and keep studying at all time. This is what will improve you and make you a better person while also handing to you that which is the route towards discovering your purpose in life.
Try Out Your Own Ideas
There is no one that is limited by ideas. In as much as you are alive and have it going for you, you have the ideas that can change your world. But the simple truth is that we do not put our ideas into practice. An idea is what rules the world and this we can make it happen if we put them into use.
Putting our ideas to use is what will guarantee us a secured future. If we are to bring it to full manifestation, we should not try to live other peoples dream. Other people dream will only limit our dreams and make us fake living it. Though imitation is good but you should be in tune with our creative ideas. Do not become a copycat but rather should copy and put in your creativity so as to become unique in your line of endeavour.
As a matter of fact, success is a function of your ideas that you put to use. Sometimes it is risk of failure and what people might say if we fail on our idea that makes us seem not to try whatever idea that runs into our mind. It is when you give a try to your idea that you will discover what actually that is within that idea. When you try and fail at it, do not count it for failure. But rather see it as a learning process to acquire the needed experience needed to succeed within that area of idea.
And even if your fail, who cares? Get up and try out those noble ideas that spring forth daily in your mind. Hey! I do not mean silly ideas. What I mean are ideas that will be beneficiary to mankind and not those that will lead to self-destruction. When your ideas are not in tune with that which is trending at the moment of time in which you are in existence, those ideas would go nowhere in the public eyes. If your ideas should excel let it be that which will solve a given problem time and time over again.
There is something with ideas, and it is what we shouldn’t allow the involvement of money to limit our ideas. When you consider the money involved in implementing an idea, then you will not want to strive on to make it a reality. Ideas are freely given and should be freely expressed so as to bring the needed benefit to all.
“If you must succeed, never procrastinate. The same idea you procrastinate about starting may within your eyes be taken be another.”
There is no need for procrastination when it has to do with your idea. The best you can do is to get it done and forever you will live to be happy with yourself. The ideas you don’t try out become a waste and will never be actualized. It is when you try out an idea that you will find that accomplishment and fulfillment of purpose inside of you. Try out that idea no matter how insignificant you felt it is, if you try you never can tell what the outcome might be which to me would be glorious.
Never Learn For Learning Sake
Learning is what makes us a better person and it is what gives us the power to conquer our world. If you seek to have an all-round victory in whatever you do, then make learning your priority. Sometimes, people become stagnant with what they learn while in school. If I should advice, I would say do not let classroom education makes you feel you have gotten it all. Remember all you knew while in school is around 30% of what you will need to make a success out of your life. And the others that will make you a fortune is through self-learning. Self-learning is what can be referred to as self-education. It is a way smarter to make life a living example for others to emulate. Those you find that actually make a meaning out of their life you would discover have it all through self-educating themselves.
Self-learning is a character builder. Anyone who seeks to be happy in all he or she does should make her a true friend. If you like, get all the qualifications you need but if you fail to educate yourself through continuous learning, then you have gotten nothing. To access understanding, you need knowledge in that area of life. Deep knowledge is actually gotten when we persistently read. It is deep learning that gives us a broader view to life and how to deal with difference kind of people that would ever come our ways. Apart from having the knowledge, we should learn to apply them to make our life better. Knowledge when apply is what brings about solution and enhance our self-worth. What you discover by yourself is only what will stay in your heart. And this can only be if you subject yourself to constant reading.
“Thought it is good to acquire knowledge but it is wiser to be deep in the area that your passion embraces.”
When I said “…your passion embraces”. I mean what will be useful to your life and career. You can read as your wishes, but have passion for that which you will make success out of it. To keep your mind focus, it is not every book that you should read. There are some that will draw you out of your faith. And destroy your self-made esteem. There is no need getting deep involved in the books that will do you no good. Have it in mind that you are what you read. When learning a trade, learn that which would be beneficial to you and it should be that which is in trend. Let such be that which will guarantee a steady flow of finance. Never learn a trade because others are learning it or it is the trendy thing in town which you know within you that you do not have a passion for it. It is your desired passion for that trade that will keep you on even when difficult time arises. If you should learn, learn to show yourself approved in that area of endeavour. When you are proved to be an authority in your area of endeavour, then in there you will become a reference point that would always bring others to you to be mentored to have the same achievement as yours. So learn and keep learning, in there you will have an amazing result beyond your very imagination.
Develop Your Brain Before Chasing The Money
Everyone’s goal is to make it in life. But how many people are prepared to put in the necessary hard work to make that goal become a reality? It is good to make money but behind that is a lot of brain work. What you need to excel is to put in a lot of brain work. Off-course, you need the grace of your Maker.
The brain is the storehouse of knowledge and except you expands it with lots of self-development; you may become stagnant and not able to move to the next level in life.
Self-development gives you an edge to withstand the pressure of the changing time. A man who reads widely is a man who cannot be moved at all time. What you know is which cannot kill you.
If you are limited in an area, all you need is leverage on that area. What you need is get the expert that is gifted in that area and save your brain the necessary stress. But do yourself the favour of having a fair share of knowledge in that area. And you can only do that if you put your brain to work.
Develop your brain where it matters and watch yourself having the needed self-confidence to make things happen. And you know what; the money will keep rolling in as you keep reinventing your brain in every moment of the changing time.
The Brain, Our Mind And The Power To Change Our World
Nothing works wonder like putting our brain to work. If you desire a change, put your brain to work. To utilize our full potential, we need positive thoughts to dwell inside our mind. It is this consciousness that makes for change. If you believe in something, then go for it and never let anything make you lose your mind against it. The mind that has focus is the mind that will always have the easiest way to get a thing done without much pressure.
“When your mind is convinced, it is time to put your brain to work.”
Every genius you find, somehow within their existences are those who put their brain to work. Great discoveries are tuition of the brain which the function of it is a determined mind. When you create the perfection between your brain and mind, the rest is a change in your world. Now is the time. Take it upon yourself to make your brain work.

And in it, I wonder how you are going to pass your exams.
The brain is the powerhouse that coordinates our mind. Keep putting it to work and see you achieve great result that will marvel you. Our brain is our journey route to greatness. It is what will give us the needed foundation that will change our world if we learn to put in it the rightful use of it. Our mind is like a journey that needs preparation. And it is like if you're not prepared, you shouldn’t embark on that journey towards discovery of yourself. It is our mind that prepares us for the journey of life and when we have what it takes, we win all the way. Except your mind is ready, never ever feel you can win in any endeavour without a plan.
To conquer the fear of our mind and what people might say about us, we need a workable plan to go all the way. Though success comes with criticism but all you can do is to ignore that and keep your mind focus on achieving your goal and break new ground. Braveness is no child’s play you have to consciously build your mind at all time to become brave in other to overcome life many turbulent times. Achieving you your success in life so as to change your world is never a lazy man attitude to life. It comes with braveness of mind which you have to build so as to resist all that is resistible.
