Given the chance to do it all again, i’d change a lot. Foresight is a perfect science after all, as they say. I don’t know who they are, but apparently they are experts and we should listen to what they have to say. Anyway.
I’d change a lot, i’d get to know and to talk to more open minded people, the few conversations you have with these amazing minds teaches you more than a semester of a lecture, where you’ll probably day dream half the time. The other half well, that’s a topic for another day.
Its incredible what you can learn from someone with an entirely open mind, uninhibited thoughts, that are so broad and enlightening so to speak. But anyway what else would i do.. I’d choose to associate myself solely with ambitious people, in a broad sense, that sort of ambition which has the potential to empower onese;f and ones community economically, that ambition which drives you forward even in the face of a thousand failures. I don’t mean successful people, i mean ambitious people. To me that is a deeper virtue that most other so called virtues they try and instill in us.
I wouldn’t associate with quitters, people who are just ridden with negativity, “oh i can’t do this because so and so couldn’t”. There’s a big difference between being a realist and being negative. A realist realises the drawbacks to his/her ambition, and finds a way to counter act those drawbacks, a driven, positive realist will still pursue his dream after careful planning and considertion and will not easily quit. Negative quitters, just i don’t know, i guess they are programmed to demotivate your ambitions, associating with them just stiffles any sort of ambition or creativity you have.
I’m not saying criticism is wrong, but there is a limit. Criticise, constructively then point to the positives. But that’s just my opinion.
I believe doing all of this would have made me more equiped to conquer the world the world so to speak, those life lessons would have been more valuable than any degree in the world. Degrees don’t teach perserverance and ambition, they barely teach creativity, Not to say degrees are useless because that’s far from the truth.
But anyway, we cannot rewind time, however we can learn from the errors of our ways, we can learn from the many failures we encountered in our endeavours and maybe one day, one fateful day, succeed and make that one success count
