The Greatest Gift You’ll Ever Get From Your Parents

June 17, 2017

Many young people ignore this but the greatest gift your parents can ever give you (besides bringing you to this world and taking care of you) is a good education. Or should I call it an investment?

Education is the foundation of all your future success. Now you might have read that and now you are wondering how you'll ever use stuff like algebra or calculus in your life. Well, you never know when you might be asked to use an example to explain something and right there you realize the easiest way to explain it is by using an algebraic example. It happened to me once and even though since then I haven't used algebra in my adult life again, I am glad to say at least I have used it once in my (adult) life. Besides, knowing algebra will help you assist your own children with their homework, right?

What am I saying? When you are in school, make it a habit to embrace everything you are taught by your teachers/lecturers because you never know when you might need to use it in your life. Don't wait until you are an adult to start regretting the years you wasted in class where you missed out on some important lessons because you thought school was just another day-care centre.

Learn everything you can while you are in school because without that foundation, you are very likely to fail in life. It doesn't matter how rich your parents are, if you don't know how to handle your riches, then you are very likely to squander them and end up a pauper, begging on the streets.

My advice to you, (now that I am an adult), please take your education seriously and don't let anyone come between you and your books. Everything has its own time and right now its time for you to learn the ropes of how to handle life.

I know right now you can't wait to get out of your parents house and start living your own life where you have freedom to do whatever you want whenever you want. But slow down; in due course you'll do all that, then you'll wish you were a small boy/girl again with no responsibilities. Trust me I know this becaue I've been there. Study hard. Get equipped to face life and when the time comes, you will be able to handle whatever life throws your way.
