Continued Education: Find your passion!
Do you like learning? Sure, you do, depending on the situation. You hated High School because your teachers constantly told you that you needed to live up to your potential and study subjects that held no interest to you.
So once your High School years were over, the last thing you wanted to do was go to more school. Instead, you went to work to make a living. However, now it is a few years later and you are finding that it is hard to find good jobs that pay well.
You see your friends who went to college get jobs that pay tens of thousands of dollars more than you receive a year and you are starting to think that you made the wrong choice.
Well, it is never too late to start continuing your education. Yes, even you. You can find a continuing education program that will not take up a ton of your precious family or fun time and in a few months you will be on your way to earning more money and finally getting the respect you know you deserve.
You may be surprised to find out that continuing education can be fun and rewarding at the same time. You can take courses that are tailored to your interests and needs instead of spending time learning stuff you do not care about.
For example, many community colleges offer continuing education courses for vocational trades like auto mechanics, computer aided drafting, carpentry, or construction. Or you can learn office trades like administrative work, data entry or medical billing. Or (yes, there are that many choices!) you can pursue a medical assisting or nursing career that will not take forever to complete.
The strangest thing to you may turn out to be that you actually enjoy your continuing education. You may find out that you love to learn and studying something you enjoy is the ticket to having a more successful and rewarding life.
No, you are not too old to do it. Even if you are in your thirties or forties, you can pursue continuing education while working it into your family and work life. Continuing education programs strive to work with adults who decide to go back to school. They know that it is beneficial to everyone when people receive an education. Society is upgraded in the world when more people are educated. It means fewer people on government assistance programs and fewer people on welfare.
So think about continuing education to improve your life. You can learn vital work skills and will eventually find that it can be fun and interesting at the same time. Who knows, maybe you will go back to your high school graduation and tell your former teachers about your successes and then hear them say how they knew you had potential, you just needed to find your niche. You rolled your eyes when they said it in high school, but now you will take their words to heart.
Find your niche now!
