As I grew up to a level where I could be admitted into school, My parents never hesitated to take me to school.
Am so assured that my first day in school would have been a great feeling. The joy of meeting children outside my family arena doubled even though responsibility as a child started arousing.
Fast forwarded to 8years later, graduating into the secondary level was a happy moment. After secondary level, the anxiety of going to the tertiary institution dawn on me. All I wanted was to wake up the next day and find myself in the institution. Finally, I got there but things started to change. My mentality experienced what I call 360 degree change, I was uncomfortable with myself, going for lectures from morning till evening and that is all I have got to achieve.
Listening to my lecturers every blessed day aside Sundays, I didn’t exclude Saturdays because at times there are fixed classes.
Don’t get it all wrong, School is good. I love it, it’s a learning environment, a place where one gets to learn new things BUT I was not just satisfied. I wanted more, so I went out of the box for more knowledge.
In school, I am not taught topics that get detailed on Entrepreneurship, Relationship, Self development, Success and Lot more and I was hungry and thirsty for those values.
What I get more at school environment was: Study hard, come out with good grades so as to get a good job after school. It’s fine but at the same time, I am not complete with those words.
I am still schooling, so till date I still hear those words and I don’t regret it at all but do you know what? It doesn’t end there, I need to be acquainted with more knowledge.
I have heard this severally:”If you do not go to school, you won’t succeed”
That is totally unacceptable, who is behind that theory? I do not buy that so as you, it’s not all theory that should be accepted. You can also create one yourself.
In as much I support education, I do not accept that theory.
You and I have seen so many graduates who came out with good grades but they are incomplete.They don’t see beyond the present, thinking school certificate can provide all their needs.
They are still yet to realise that not all things are taught in school.
Knowledge goes beyond the school environment, Creativity goes beyond the four corners of the primary, secondary and tertiary classrooms.
Have you heard of Richard Branson? He is a school drop out but he is mentioned as one of the successful men in the world, what about Bill gates? He is the brain behind Microsoft corporation but guess what! He is a drop out. We have so many of them like: Steve Jobs, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Walt Disney and lot more.
I am not encouraging one dropping out from school but at the same time I want you to have the mentality that success is beyond the four corners of the lecture theatre.
Do you want to attain success? Then see beyond the classroom.
