The whole idea of getting an education goes beyond checking a box on your “parents” to do list. Education is supposed to be an eye opening experience that ushers you into a world full of possibilities of what you can do for the world around you.
Unfortunately we are fast becoming a society that quickly forgets that knowledge is power; a lot of the solutions to some of the problems we face around us lies within us.
Today I challenge you to make your Education meaningful to the WORLD.
I hope you find some inspiration in the the quotes below…
- Education is the most powerful tool you can use to change the world. – Nelson Mandela
Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family. –Kofi Annan
- The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create men who are capable of doing new things. – Jean Piaget
- Education is a human right with immense power to transform, on its foundations rest the cornerstones of freedom, democracy and sustainable human development.-Kofi Annan
- Education is not the lifting of a pail, but a lighting of a fire. – William Butler Yeats
So in this new week, ponder over whether you want to be an educated person who makes a difference with their education or an educated person with “just” a degree to show for it.
