THOSE WHO CAN’T DO TEACH

Image result for teachers

“Do or taught to do.”


TEACH THEM WELL

When you are learning from an educator to use what you are taught to pursue in a career field do you ever think to yourself to how come they didn’t pursue while they are teaching you. Because they have all this knowledge about how to do something but they are never in that career. It’s like teaching someone how to cook, but for some reason you have never pursued a career in cooking. You would think that in was in them to do this as a career. But the reality is that some people don’t have the ability to fight for what they want, so they teach you to do so. But is it always like that, just so cut clean and dry.

THEY WERE ONCE GREAT

You would be surprised how many people were globetrotters in their career field and are now college professors. They worked for twenty or thirty years in their field and are now interested in teaching a group of next generation business people. And not just business, sometimes in the medical field or some other field where they have the expertise to aid in a collegiate course. But is it always about college students? Some teachers come back and teach a group of high school kids. And to add to it, are teachers always in classrooms? Professional athletes who are no longer playing have been known to go back to universities and coach. These are teachers as well, just a different specialized position.

THE ASSUMPTION OF TRUTH

We can always assume that since someone is teaching they are not willing to pursue this as a career. There are plenty of people who worked in the field as well as people who just have a love for the field of study. But anyhow, they still possess more knowledge in the field than the student.

WALKING THE ROAD ALONE

“It’s all about the journey.”


THE COME UP

When pursuing anything in life, one must be ready to take that long road to success. And when I say the long road I mean be set in and ready for the long haul. You have to really be willing to spend years and years building your life. Otherwise you won’t make it through to the other side. And here is where most people fall apart. Because they are not willing to walk through fire to get to where they have to go. They want and can almost feel it, but then when the hard times really set in they fold and run. But this is part of the fight, you have to be willing to struggle and at times struggle hard.

YOUR TIME IS NOT EVERYONE ELSE’S

Building will not only be hard because you have to deal with the hardships of failure, but also the people you might lose. And those people will come form the unlikeliest of places. A lot of them will be friends and family. The people closest to you will discourage you from continuing to fight. They feel you should run as fast as possible and don’t look back. And they’ll say it’s to help you, but the people who succeed are the last ones standing. Many don’t understand the logic behind fighting to the last one standing. It just doesn’t resonate in the mind. Because to them play life safe and have a safety net to fall back on.

KEEP FORGING AHEAD

You will want to give up and quite, but you can’t allow the downside to keep you from growing. And you’ll even think to yourself why in the world did I decide to take on this career endeavor. If you have not asked yourself this question then you are not someone who is sane. But ion the end, the one standing will be able to tell of their journey and how they made it.

MAKING IT IN LIFE

“What’s it all mean?


I’VE ARRIVED

People can’t wait until they get to a certain point in life then they look and say I have made it or arrived. But then you have to ask yourself, what does it mean by making it life? Because we automatically look at someone who makes money¬† as a symbol of where we want to be and how big we aspire to be. But looking at someone else’s life can be disatrous because we don’t know how they became so successful. We can look at their blueprint, but you should be weary of following another person’s actions move for move. It worked for them, not quite for you.

MEANINGS BEHIND INTENT

What is the real meaning behind the words. Because that is way more important than anything. In America, we always put the meaning for making it in the country as someone who has a certain level of income. But a school teacher might be a person living their dream and they are far from people making a lot of money. But in the same breathe you have celebrities taking their own lives even with so much money. So understand why you’re building and what it means to you.

COMPARED TO THOSE AROUND YOU

When you look at the peers of people around you, you have a tendency to stack yourself against others. And how could you not because who you associate yourself with says a lot about yourself. So you can’t be around winners and not be a winner yourself. It will either rub off on you or you will fall out the group. But you should never see yourself as not successful if you are doing something in life that is not as lucrative, as long as it has meaning behind it.

NO COLLEGE CAREER

People Wearing Backpacks

“Why sit in class all day?”


DO YOU NEED IT REALLY

Going to college you have all these ideas about what life is going to be once you graduate undergraduate school. You think that life is going to be so cut clean and dry when it comes to finding employment. But what you don’t realize is that your college degree is a small aspect of the overall success of a person’s career. Now that I have embarked on my career journey I am looking at life going, why did I go to college? Because there are people who go to school for photography or filmmaking, but you really don’t need to do so. As a matter of fact, you can actually pay less for the equipment and getting yourself started versus going to school. We also have enough videos out there and books to self educate.

SPECIALIZED STILL NEED SCHOOL

There are careers that still need a degree to obtain the role. And those are usually jobs where you have to get into the medical fields like surgeons. This is because someone’s life is in your hands. So for that reason, you have to be in school, usually for a long period of time. But is medicine the only type of career you need to go to school for, no attorneys in most states. That is because the extensive training is necessary when dealing with the outcome of people’s lives.

OPEN MARKET

In this new improved society we are able to have careers that don’t always need degrees. You can put yourself in the know and build a life today. So a lot of young people have been thinking twice about going to college. That, or they are going to smaller schools that require less money to pay back and are living at home.

CAREER DAY: BRING IT BACK TO SCHOOLS

“Teach them young.”


EDUCATIONAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

We always used to pride ourselves in schools on aiding children choose a career in school which will contribute to their overall success. And that is when we used to have career day in school. Not that much is talked about the career in the lives of small children. We teach them how to write their names in cursive, their alphabet, and then a little math. But the scary thing we don’t show them is all the opportunities they have to succeed in life. Schools provide children with the bare minimum, and then after that it is the parent’s job to do the rest. And I guess that’s the price you pay for free education.

THEIR SKILLS

When in school it is the job of the school to try to find out the things that the student knows how to do. We don’t have in school a multitude of creative endeavors for kids to do so we can see what they can do. I would really like for the schools to have a class dedicated to trying to figure out likes and dislikes. But this is left up to the parents, and part of it is the parents. But if that’s becoming the case, will there ever come a time when parents stop sending their children to school at a certain point. And that will mean specialized teachers not in school teachers.

LATER REALIZED

So many young people don’t realized what they are good at until later into their adulthood. So to introduce it into school can be seen as somewhat of a distraction and waste of time. And not to mention the amount of finances that must be allocated to trying to fund this type of learning. So for now, it is the job of the parent/s to do so.

BRING YOUR KID TO WORK DAY

“They’ll learn a lot.”


WHEN IT WAS OK

When I was growing up as a child, there was something called take your daughter to work day. And it was done to promote women in the workforce; to show girls what their mother did everyday. And eventually it turned into take your child to work day. But today, you don’t hear much about it; some places have even removed it fully. And that is because there is this idea that we must promote working for boys and girls. Yet we still don’t allow kids to go to see where their parents work. I don’t know if it’s because parents don’t see as what they do as interesting. Or if workplaces don’t want parents to have their children on the job for liability concerns.

TIMES HAVE CHANGED

Like I said in the passage prior, we don’t take our children to work anymore. And I don’t know why it stopped so much. People are so politically correct today that it can be seen as a problem. Like I also said before liabilities. No workplace want a kid at the place and potentially get hurt. You get sued because a kid wants an adult experience, no way.¬† Another reason is because people felt there were beginning to be more opportunities for girls to experience a workplace.

ALTERNATIVES

With the way social media is designed today, there are so many opportunities to have girls be apart of programs. So you really don’t need to take a daughter or any child to work.

I NEED MORE: WHEN CAREER IS NOT ENOUGH

“I want more.”


OUTSIDE THE 9-5

We work our jobs, have goods, some more than good, but it is not enough to keep us happy. And that is something that so many people can’t understand especially if you make a lot of money. People automatically feel if you have money, what is there to complain about. Well, there is a lot to complain if you don’t have much going on outside the day job. So many of us, get up and go to work, but that’s it. Our work is what defines us, which can be a bit of a problem. So make sure you’re doing things that can make you happy once you come home from work.

TIME WAITS FOR NO MAN

Whatever you do people, just be sure that it is worth the fight. And the reason being is because you don’t want your life to have meant nothing. So many people, especially now, they fight for their careers, but then their lives lack. It amounts to nothing more than just a check, which no one will remember after you’re dead and gone. And the hard part is that you can never get those moments back again. Those tactile moments that move you forward. Hold on to them for as long as possible.

LOCATE THE SOURCE

The vast majority of what you do is predicated on your career. So when your job is not enough it starts to eat away at you. Because if so much is about what you do, then outside is so empty, you will never reach that place of where you want to be. So harness that something you are looking for in life, it will make you happy along with the work.
