Some People say that the world has many opportunities, some say that you can’t get anywhere
unless you are born to some certain class of people. Some even say that it is pure fate that brings
you where you are going to be and what you get is what you get and you can’t do anything about
it. I think that people decide their own fates and it doesn’t matter who was your parents or how
much money you have. I think that your education is the most important thing that you can have
in life it can bring you many things like; advancement, family, stability, a career, and of course
In many countries your job is already decided when you are born because of what your parent
does for a living and their stature in society. That is many people say that the United States is the
land of opportunity, you can do what ever you want with your life as long as you earn it and have
the right qualifications. You can decide weather you want to continue after high school and
education or get a minimum wage job. Many people take that right for granted and they put off
college until they after they have a family and get settled with out knowing that their family will
take up the rest of their lives. People who are from other countries who move to take advantage
of this right we take for granted understand the purpose of a higher education.
Advancement is inevitable no matter what you do you will have to be going forward in some
way. Weather your advancement is to a new position in your job or a whole knew career, even if
all you are doing is going to the next day you are advancing. I think that if you want to decide
where you are going to advance to you have to have a good education. If you don’t have a good
education you are going to play life like that lottery, you may go to a better job where you get
better money or you can get fired because they want someone with more education. You never
know what can happen to you in the next week or even the next day.
Family is one of my biggest priorities in life besides my education. The future, that is how I look
at family. Either you can teach your kids about higher education by example or by your mistakes.
You also need a higher education for a family because you need to manage the bills and keep up
books on your finances. If you have no education and a bad job you will never have your own
home. You will not be able to provide for your children or yourself as well as you would if you
had a higher education.
A career is the goal of most people in the world, but sometimes I think that there are not enough
available for all the people who want one, so if you want to get one you will have to work foe it
and prove yourself to be worthy of the job you desire. So that requires a higher education. With a
career you have all the things that I have mentioned available to you. You can even get your own
business and be your own boss. You can save money and plan for retirement, you can start a
college fund for your children so they can get a higher education as well.
Knowledge is the key to the world. It is the factor between man and beast, between who you are
and who you want to be. Knowledge is what having a higher education is all about. If you had all
the knowledge in the world you would be undefeatable. No one could stand in you way. You
need knowledge to teach others how to become what they want to be, you can teach the next
generation who will take care of what you have worked your whole life for and if you have
knowledge you will teach them right and trust that they wont destroy your dreams.
When the people say that the world has many opportunities I think that they are correct. The
world does have many opportunities, people just have to work for them. It is not fate that decides
what you are going to be or where you are going. People decide their own fate and take
advantage of the opportunities that they choose. I think that fate is just something that people
who are lazy and want the world to come to them thought up. They really had no plans on getting
a higher education or actually working for what they wanted in life, so they thought up an idea to
soothe their conscience in thinking that there was no problem with not working for what you
need to achieve in life. Or maybe fate is something that people with a lucky streak thought up
because they had no other explanation for their fortune and they had to give it a label.
Stability is very important to many people, some people travel all around the country moving
from house to house never knowing where they will live the following months. All because they
keep losing their jobs to people who have gone on and achieved a higher education. To the
employer a person with a higher education is more of an asset to the company and they are
willing o sacrifice their current employees to obtain their services. So when you have a higher
education the employer is less willing to sacrifice your services and you will be guaranteed a job
for a long time. With an on going job you will continue to learn the skills needed and you will
continue to grow as an employee, thus creates stability.
Through a higher education you can achieve allot of things such as , advancement, Family values,
a successful career, and vast knowledge of the world around you to make you aware of the future
and the things that will come to be. Even if you believe in fate you can say that if you don’t get a
higher education you will have the fate of a unsuccessful person and be destined not to have the
life you have always dreamed. Anyone you ask that has experience with life will tell you the
same words I have written knowledge is the key and the door is a happy successful life in the
world of the educated.
