Distance education has made adult education a wonderful possibility.If there is one thing India needs today is educated skilled human resource.Because the saddest thing in the world is an ineffectively educated, unemployable adult population.
The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.” – The Lion King
The past is funny .
It’s the history from which you must learn and also unlearn.It’s the soil which has helped you become who you are.The past does hurt in many parts .But I am grateful to it too.My scars and my flaws make me appreciate my life now, even more.
When I want to crib about small things I focus on how much better life is now.
If you are reading my post I am sure its the Universe who guided you.From around 13 years of age I was too smart for my own boots.At least that was the popular perception .I preferred to think I was just born old, wise and smart.Which version you agree with,will depend on how much you like me.
I knew that the only way to live life on your own terms was, if you earned your own keep.When you are financially independent,you have a choice,if not, you don’t.
Researching popular higher study options and cross matching it with my own aptitudes and goals,being a doctor suited me to a T .But I will be the first one to tell you that even then, I haven’t stopped learning new skills .
I am actively pursuing courses to learn new skills and upgrade others.I try to #Bebetterthanmyself in every little thing.
I also believe in value pay. Remember the value of the course you are taking and how that will help you.Spending a little money for the right course will be well worth it.
If you have not completed your studies it’s not too late.Learn from it and make it up now.
If you haven’t become financially independent its not too late.
If you haven’t applied all that you learned it’s not too late.
Start your journey of enriching your education.Help spread the magic of learning.
Only with education and awareness can we make this world a better place.
Adult education is now possible with distance education,online education .
