‘’Formal education (high school and college) gets you a job.
Self-education gets you rich.” -Jim Roh’’
There is one thing that everyone has to cope with; that is life is an exam. Each and every day we make an important decision that may affect our way of life. Thus for those who did their KCSE exams, congratulations for those who feel they got what they deserved. Contention about an outcome is the vital thing in focusing on what next to undertake.
Don’t beat yourself up for the poor grades you attained in high school. Parents as well should don’t bother their young adults with the notion that they have failed. Be grateful to doctor Matiangi for making you discover the full potential and ability to oneself. In the recent past those who got the appealing grades that saw the whole village celebrate usually ended up having rough times on campus. False grades have seen one take a second year doing a course that others graduated already. This is because they lied to themselves and the society but forgot their potential is limited. Students should view their grades as a reflection of what they can do. Others may not accept their capability and say that the examination was too difficult end not knowing what they want.
Substance Over Form
Life has much more to offer than just papers and certificates. Certificates and papers are just meant to get you a job but if you got the knowledge self-education going to make you rich. Self-discovery and acceptance are all we need.Not everybody has met to see a university door we just need to know what we want and work towards it.
Many relatives have advised their loved once to repeat school and my question is ; If you gave your best then there is no essence in going back just waste your precious year.
Those good at talking and customer relations skills can get a sales job even in the real estate or sell insurance from there you kill it with huge earnings, you just need to know your potential.
Welding jobs are out there, This jobs got real money, people are building every day, individuals with such skills have high demand due to the market dynamics where people tend to overcrowd in white color jobs courses. I know a friend who makes 70K per month a form 2 drop out but with specialized skills in wielding.
Those who love studying and feel books as their passion, but still did not get the results they hopped for, please do not loose hope, start from the bottom, maybe a certificate, diploma and finally a degree. Patience and following the right path will ultimately lead you to your destinations. As they say, there are different ways to kill a rat, just as there are different routes to reach a destination, but the final outcome is the same.
Coming Up Next…?
