They Can Never Take This From You
The reason I have no fear about dropping every last cent I make into my personal education is that nobody will ever be able to take that from me.
You might call it a bit of a “complex.” But when you’ve had your entire paycheck seized by your favorite bank after working overtime all month. Or watched several people go through personal bankruptcy… You start to realize that you don’t “own” anything.
If you can’t carry in your hands or in your brain. It isn’t yours. If you want to meet the real owner then stop paying your bills for about six months. I promise you that the real owner will show-up eventually.
Education is a tool of empowerment, education is something you can take anywhere, education is something that can never be taken away from you.
You want solid advice? Invest in your skills and your own personal development. It is the only safe investment you will ever make. You can start by investing in one book.
If you don’t like reading that’s cool, I was like that too. If you don’t like to read you can listen to audio books, cds, podcast, whatever… as long as you are taking the time to educate yourself.
“The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you." - B.B. King
