Just because we are taught something at school or at work or somewhere does not mean it will forever hold true , take some of the things we spent hours and hours learning at school yet as we get older we prove that it was all a waste of time . Let’s face it how many times did we sit there trying to absorb all this stuff they called algebra or then there was the higher forms of mathematics , we sit and try and make sense of it and somehow manage to make it through , and let us not forget geometry all those angles going in different directions . Really it was for me anyway a pain in the proverbial and as you can imagine once it was over you manage to pass get on with next level school work it seems that whatever else you do nothing is as hard as these 3 subjects were . The amount of hours we spent trying to make the numbers add up and the circles go the way they should , we finally get it right and pass school and then we leave and say thank heavens that’s over.
What now then ? Now we have to go out on our own , get a job , look after ourselves , so off we go and we get started , we get a place then a job and off we go and it is only years later after much striving we are pretty well established . Something makes us stop and think we wonder how we managed it after all those years getting to this point , 1 thing becomes obvious in all our striving in all our getting to this point we never once needed all those higher maths , or those circles or those angles at no time did we ever need any of those things we had rammed down our throats . So many hours of study and worry and what for ? Turns out for nothing at all as in our journey to this point in time what we have achieved has had nothing whatever to do with where we are now it was all wasted , after all these years I still have never needed it .
Just because we did all that for nothing does not mean conversely that we wasted that time , yes it was a pain and yes it was time consuming but we did learn something we learned patience because if we didn’t we didn’t pass and that would be the end of it if we wanted a career of any sort . Just because we did not like all that pressure it did do us the world of good teaching us how to handle that pressure then we were equipped to handle most of what life would throw at us as we got older and moved on with our lives. Imagine what would have happened or where we would be without having gone through all this , it made us much stronger than we would have been had we not gone through it. Pressure is something no one likes but it does have it’s brighter side it toughens us up and helps us prepare for the challenges we will have to face and trust me there will be plenty unless you go live on a deserted island somewhere.
Just because we learn things or hear things as we grow up and form our own opinions on things does not mean we should ever stop listening and learning we still need to keep aware of what goes on around us . Research is the best tool to prepare us for what things might come our way , I have learned the hard way never ever to just trust what I am told , also 1 thing I learned is that too many people will lie to you if it suits them or if it suits whatever it is they are up to . Research is my main tool now I always do it when someone is trying to get me to do something , go somewhere , or anything else I will never just do anything anymore until I have fully checked it out .
So just because someone tries to convince you that black is white do not believe them check it out yourself it is way safer to do that and you lessen the chances of getting hurt you cannot stop it but by checking everything you can at least make it easier for yourself. Once you learn to do your own research and not trust what others tell you it is way safer for you and those you love , it might take a lot of time but it will save you in the long run . When someone says to you hey I got a great thing for you just do this and then pay that and you will be rich , how many of us have had those e mails from Nigeria ? I would suspect most of us have had them and if we just blindly did what they said in the e mails we would be right up the creek.
Moral of the story …Do your research …Just because someone says something does not mean it’s right.
I have all the answers, just wish someone would ask me the right questions…
