Warning Signs for the New Year: January 4

No mediocre hippos today, right? They can get you if you’re not looking out for them. Paying the price to rise will pay off. Keep fighting for your goals. Next up…

There are more warning signs you need to watch out for this month as you go after your goals. I am bringing you 31, one for each day of the month of January. So on to the next one! #31WarningSigns

DAY 4

Major Cause of Failure Number 4:

Insufficient education. This is a handicap which may be overcome with comparative ease. Experience has proven that the best-educated people are often those who are known as “self-made,” or self-educated. It takes more than a college degree to make one a person of education. Any person who is educated is one who has learned to get whatever he wants in life without violating the rights of others. Education consists, not so much of knowledge, but of knowledge effectively and persistently applied. Men are paid not merely for what they know, but more particularly for what they do with that which they know.

There is hope for me yet! It took me eleven-and-a-half years to complete my college degree…thank goodness for tutors! And I’m not done learning! Are you?

Have you stopped learning? Are you effectively and persistently applying what you’ve learned? If you have a new year’s resolution you’re going after, what do you need to learn about the topic to help you succeed?

Go after that knowledge. But don’t just get the knowledge. What Mr. Hill is encouraging us to do here is to effectively and persistently apply this knowledge. That is when we become educated and are able to grab those goals we are after. #31WarningSigns

What book do you need to grab today on your way home from work? What class do you need to sign up for online during your lunch break? Get educated!
