Succeed in Life
So you may be a student in high school who is fixing on graduating or feel like dropping out. Have you thought about your future? Where you would like to see yourself in the next three to five years? I would like you to know that your future education is very important. If you want to be successful in life then you should stay in school and go on to college.
I’ll be the first to admit, I didn’t pay much attention to anything in high school because I was involved a serious relationship. I wasn’t a horrible teen I just didn’t want to listen to anyone, I always thought I was right (when I wasn’t) I had to learn what was good for myself by experience anyways, I missed out on lots of things because I became a mother at seventeen. It was hard but I couldn’t give up, so continued on earned my high school diploma and participated in the graduation ceremony. These days I am happy with how my life has turned out but life was tough for a few years and now I am currently a sophomore in college seeking a degree in Accounting. As a result of going to college and getting a career you can have a great profession with higher pay and benefits. Just think, wouldn’t you love to be financially stable and not have to depend on anyone? That’s the question I asked myself and the reason I went on to college.
There are many reasons to continue your education the first reason is; someday you may want to buy a house, a car or have a family education will one day help you to achieve all these things. “Education opens the doors to many things like multiple jobs, career choices, the chance to further education at any point in life, and the option of teaching others what you have learnt. Be it a child, family member, or a poor person you meet” (biloxibridge.com). The second reason is,” whether attending a trade school, training, online courses or seeking a degree having the education and skills you need, and you will be more knowledgeable and confident when it comes to the career you choose”. It’s a proven fact that the more training and education a job seeker has, the more likely that they will be hired into better jobs at higher salaries.
Also education allows you to become experienced in new and interesting things including social situations that will help you in life.” According to experts, college graduates are self confident, have greater knowledge of governance, are less likely to become criminals, are emotionally and financially secure, make better partners and parents, and have a deeper understanding of human nature”(biloxibridge.com). For example becoming more independent can give you the self confidence to understand the world around you
The third reason is increased earning power; an average person will earn hundreds of thousands of dollars more than people who have not had any college. “ A college graduate with a bachelor's degree earns an average of $26,000 more a year than a worker with only a high school diploma, according to the U. S. Census Bureau”(studentaid.com). So now you can see that employers tend to be more open to a person with more education.
The point is I strongly believe college is good for everyone. Everyone should go and get their college education. You may hit bumps in the road or glitches as your long goes on but don’t let that get in your way or hold you back from becoming successful. I hope that I have inspired you to reach for you goals that you wish to achieve, because if you want to be successful in life then it all begins by staying in school and go on to college.
