Educate yourself.


via everystockphoto.com

 Most people will admit that education is important. So, why are most people still uneducated? Most people are uneducated because they only listen to what other people tell them about education. They do not understand it’s  true definition.  Education is more than books. It is more than someone teaching you how to work. It is a process  that allows you to  be independent, to form your own opinions, and to influence others.  When someone is educated, they understand the value of learning for themselves. They do not depend on others to tell them how things should be done. They understand that people lie. They understand that people make mistakes. They understand that people are afraid of change.

They understand  that they have no right to complain about things they know nothing about.

You have no right to complain about the president if you did not vote.

You have no right to complain about gas prices if you are not looking into alternatives.

You have no right to complain about waiting  if you did not make a reservation.

The list could go on and on but, that’s another post. What I am trying to say is, you should not be a victim of society. You should not complain about things that you can change. Don’t be like everyone else. Educate yourself. You can educate yourself by watching the news, reading, watching videos on YouTube, or by simply observing others.  You will be surprised by the difference it makes.

And remember,

“The way out is not by using guns or violence. It is by using our minds. Educate yourself.”

  1. Chrissie,

    You hit the nail on the head when you penned, “Educate yourself.” I have learned way more through self-education, specifically reading, than I did obtaining the two degrees I have packed away in a closet–somewhere.

    I leave you with another quote from Mark Twain that addresses this very issue:

    I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
    ~Mark Twain

    In Reason,
    Madison

  2. I agree, Chrissie, “Education is more than books.” It’s not even learned only in school. Life is a continuous learning process that’s why I have committed myself to lifelong learning.

    My blog header shouts: “Lifelong learning + Personal Growth = Legacy.” There’s really no better way to live.

    Keep inspiring many with your life, Chrissie. I cheer you on your journey!
