Determined to finish out the rest of my high school. I attained that I was self destructing my progress. Now, looking back, I feel silly for almost throwing it all away. Life would be an even greater struggle without high school. No diploma, probably no College, Definitely a lower pay rate and less likely I was to get a job I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
Emily wonders if coming here for free is really worth all the downfalls. Her peers come and go as they please since they have nothing to lose. However, a college education should never be something taken for granted. If citizens in the United States are given the opportunity to go to college for free, there will be many consequences not only for the students, but for other Americans as well. Free education will attract people who are not suited for college to apply, decrease the value of a college education, and will be a costly burden for taxpayers who will be forced to foot the bill, therefore college must me paid for by the individual student.
In the article “48 percent of Millennials think the American dream is dead. Here’s why” by Philip Bump he explains how hard work is a great determining factor as for success, although, “jobs are hard to come by,” the reason many believe the American dream is dead because “student loan debt, which continues to be a massive burden to recent college graduates. The second is waste stagnation.” Those who say the dream is dead due to loan debt, 42% are not or have never been enrolled in college, whereas, 58% of those with a college degree say the dream is alive. Those who do not have loan debt to pay for a higher education argue that debt is holding them back, yet if that money was not used for something to move them up, how can they even say something is dead if they did not work to rise? The mindset of people have a lot to do with the American dream and as for hard work, it’s something that has to be done because without it, nothing much is achievable.
Many are not giving much importance to their everyday lives because for them it is already natural that every morning they will just wake up and then do things which they usually do. I also blame myself realizing that I have wasted most of my life for doing nothing which I can say I can remember when I die. Life’s nature is unexpected, it can be taken away from us any moment of time and this is what everyone doesn’t mind to think of. We commonly aim for second chances without considering the time wasted. No one wants regret in the end but we act as if life is unlimited, endless and can exist forever.
'Reduce your workload by 30% and increase your fun load by 30% and you will increase your revenues by 100%. More fun, less struggle. More results on all fronts. ' Abraham-Hicks I remember being asked this question years ago and it took me a long time to finally express my passion for writing because I really didn 't think that anything I wrote would really impact people. Once I began writing articles and receiving emails from people who had read them and enjoyed them I knew I had to overcome my insecurities and reach out for moments of brilliance because in those moments I write my best work :) We all have a passion for something and we do not always have to save the world or make it a deep far reaching impact kind of passion.
Every person in this wide world must have some life issues and problems, some of these problems are easy to solve and some aren’t, but even if you tried to avoid problems, they will come to you, because a life without issues is impossible it.well, you can have one but only in heaven. In this essay I am going to talk about a specific problem that many young men are facing and I faced it personally two years ago, which is being unemployed eventhough having college degree. When I started my studies, I wasn’t worried about the after college life, because I entered the civil engineering college and my uncle has an engineering company ,so that my goal was entering his company and be a part of it. But in my senior year, my uncle’s company broke
I know a lot of people who would rather work a factory job rather than have have a desk job or be a manager/boss of a company. Personally, I think job training is the way to go; no college debt or student loans, you don’t have to worry about someone else taking your job unless you don’t prove to them you’re worthy of having that job, and you’ll have a guaranteed job and not have to worry about graduating from college and end up not being able to get a job that you just paid a huge amount of money for. Mr. Armstrong told us a story of a kid he had just a few years ago in class who became a diesel mechanic by doing job training, and now he owns two different shops and is making $150,000 a year. He has no college debt, he didn’t have to worry about getting a job in the field he studied, and he has job security for the rest of his life now that he has started two different repair shops. Working hard to become successful is another way that you can live a great life
Creating your own company simply because you want to make money is way too much of a risk and price to pay as an entrepreneur. Why not just work a nine to five day job in order to make money? Seems like the easier way. That’s what employees do, they work their nine to five day jobs in order to make ends meet and they don’t have to worry about all the hassle and risk that comes with their job. Entrepreneurship demands more work from you than any typical nine to five job does.
I can physically name the three biggest things in life he has taught me; hard work does pay off, there is never a reason to be down in the dumps for too long, and that when you’re happy you should never lose yourself in the pursuit for more happiness (that’s how you self-destruct). He more or less passed on the family business to me and my brother a couple of years, we all work around in the auction business. He won the world championship of “ringmanning” in 2008, 23 years after he started working in the business. He stayed humble, kept at what he was doing and developed a passion for it. He then turned that passion in to this world championship, when he created a name for himself he did it with me and my brother in mind.
I also paid off all my debts and vowed never to fall into debt again. I achieved that goal and subsequently built a significant net worth such that I am fully self-funded for this postgraduate study. I will not be drawing on funds that would better serve others, and will be financially contributing to the college. After obtaining my degree I applied for a position as a Field Engineer with Schlumberger and was rejected. Undeterred, I interviewed for a similar position with a smaller company called PathFinder and got the job.
