I’m passionate about education, education of the right kind. Education – the one that does not just swell your head but changes your mind and expands your world.

I’m a personal development junkie – buying and reading books, attending seminars, listening to CDs and watching videos and documentary TV shows is my drug. In short, learning is my addiction!

And it has improved me, expanded my world and literally changed my life. It will do the same for you too, if it hasn’t yet. When you know truth, it sets you free from the limitations of mediocrity (see John 8:32). Education, of the personal development type changes lives. Here I present supportive evidence from no less a person than Nelson Mandela in his biography, Long Walk to Freedom:

“Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine; that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.”

Don’t stop your education, now that you are out of school or once you are out of school, whatever your own case may be. Take that course, read that book. Attend that seminar. No one may notice now, but soon they will! Keep learning, it will impact your earning. Keep learning, it will enable you to keep leading. Real education is found in what changes your life, not just what goes into your head. Have a great learning week, this week. You will succeed!
