When we are young we are poked and prodded towards education. We fight and whine and cry as our parents make us go to that dreaded place known as “school.” We count the days until summer vacation when we can once again be free and happy. We long for a time when school is no longer our burden to bear.
Once we finally get out though, something magical and frightening happens: Those pokes and prods happen less and less, leaving us masters of our own educational fate.
The harsh reality is that if you relied on those pokes and prods to keep you progressing you will find your continued growth after schooling extremely lacking. More than likely you will find yourself stuck in a deep rut one day wondering where it all went wrong.
You are fully responsible for your own improvement and it’s time to bear that burden.
