The single most important choice that I have to make in order to be happy and successful is to complete my education. Without an education, I do not feel that I will accomplish all of my goals. If I do not complete my education, I feel that I will be letting my family down and I will never achieve true happiness.
As a wife and mother, my family is first in my life. By choosing to obtain my degree, I feel that I am securing my family’s financial well-being. I want to set an example for my children, to be a role model and mentor. I want my children to choose education and strive for their personal best in all that they do. The best way to accomplish this is to set the stage for them and show them the way to happiness and success. Choosing to complete my education will allow me to do all of this.
As I embark on the journey of education, I will keep in mind that time management and organizational skills are crucial. I must remain focused and detail oriented throughout my college career. I will not procrastinate, but will stay on top of my studies. I will accept nothing less than the best that I can do, in everything that I do. My goal is to maintain a 4.0 grade point average every semester. I will not fail in my quest for happiness and success.
I strive to always look toward the future and focus on my happiness and success. I imagine myself graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree and the pride that I will feel as I walk across the stage to accept my diploma. I think of my husband beaming with joy, my children and parents cheering me on. I picture a successful career as a business professional and my heart swells with joy. I look forward to owning my own business and applying the skills that I am learning in college to real-life situations. These wonderful feelings keep me going when the going gets tough.
Choosing to go back to school later in life has not been an easy decision. I readily admit that I have struggled with periods of doubt and...
...Education is considered as the cheapest defence of a nation. But the down trodden condition of education in Pakistan bears an ample testimony of the fact that it is unable to defend its own sector. Though 62 years have been passed and 23 policies and action plans have been introduced yet the educational sector is waiting for an arrival of a saviour.The government of Pervaiz Musharraf invested heavily in education sector and that era saw a visible positive educational change in Pakistani society. Now a days, the economic situation in Pakistan is under stress and education is the worse effected sector in Pakistan. The Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan says,
“The state of Pakistan shall remove illiteracy and provide free and compulsory secondary education within minimum possible period.”
"Education is the key to success"What is the definition of success? Some define success as the acquisition of wealth: to some others, it is the accomplishment of the goal aimed at. And how does education becomes the key to success? In today`s modern and competitive society, it is undeniable that we must equip ourselves with plenty of knowledge and skills in order to shine and to be successful in life. Many opine that the aforementioned aspects are mostly obtained through learning in academic...
... About 20 years ago, education was something that a person did only if he/she wanted
to. Unfortunately, as the years went by, the idea of "Education is the key to success" got more,
and more enforced. People eventually started to believe that education was the single way to
succeed, and the only thing needed for success. Despite the fact, many Americans believe a
college degree will lead them to be successful, in reality, education is not the solitary way to
Not everybody can receive an education, or even an excellent education from a "decent
academic" college/university. "There are many students who have no desire to attend college
and who would be much better off if they received training that would qualify them for a better-
paid job with just a high school diploma" (Finneran, 22). Many students today that are receiving
a secondary education are either doing it because they think it is the right thing to do, or because
their parents told them that the only way to succeed in today's world was through a college
degree. Parents put a lot of pressure on their children when it comes to college, and receiving an

in life, he/she must both...
...students are surrounded with their attention spans have drastically decreased and with entertainment at the touch of a button away from them it becomes very hard to keep a class of 30 students entertained for an hour and as time passes by this will gradually get more and more worse. I am personally a very geeky technical person to me computers are like real life people who talk to you and guide you as long as you ask them right questions. I have started depending so much on computers that whenever I need help rather than asking my teacher I look it up on google because it is so much faster and easier to do but that information is not always true. I think the solution to this problem isn’t to completely get rid of today’s teaching methods or not allow students to use their technological devices at all I think the solution is a medium between these two paths so that the teachers have an easier time teaching and students find it more enjoyable to learn education materials.
I think today’s use of power points in lectures makes it so much more easier for teachers to make their lesson plans and for students to access them later on whenever they need it. But for a couple of years that is where it’s been stuck it power points get more and more fancier but they aren't necessarily helping the students engage into the material that they are learning in class. I think school district should have a set amount of money put aside for labs and competitions...
Education is a Key to SuccessEducation gives me knowledge of the world around me, while opening doors to brilliant career opportunities. Education builds confidence to make decisions, to face life, and to accept successes and failures. The best way to reach career success is to map out a strategy and set goals.
College is a choice, it is the beginning of a life long journey that will shape and determine future choices, decisions and purposes. Education will provide me with skills, knowledge and will lead me to a productive lifestyle. Tidewater Community College is really a stepping-stone towards success. The reason why I am attending TCC is because, it fits my budget, and it was easy for me to get in by doing the placement test. It is also close to my home so I find it very convenient this way I save on gas, and stay with my parents so I do not have to pay for living. My career goal is to transfer to a four year university and finish my degree in Mechanical Engineering.
It is important for me to succeed in college to reach my career goal. College will provide me with all the knowledge that is related to my field, and also help me understand what all mechanical engineers do in the future. Getting an engineering degree will require completing...
...Finding Success and Happiness
I’ve been asked what characteristics, beliefs and goals do I feel are important to become successful and happy in life. These are some ultimate questions that almost all of us have been asked many times whether it’s been through school, work, interviews, of simple talk between friends and family. Successful and happy most often mean you have a good base of wealth and accomplishments, smiling healthy happy family, a relatively non stressful and non demanding career. Who wouldn’t want that, but I think it goes much deeper then the money and magazine life. I believe it’s very important to have characteristics to find that happiness, but in order to have that first step, you need to know where your beliefs lie, and what is truly important. Those abstract things. Maybe love? Maybe curiosity?
Characteristics: So many to choose from. I look at someone like Lance Armstrong. A role model of mine, who has been incredibly successful in my eyes. Having an outrageous amount of heart and drive for what he wants is what I believe has got him to where he is now. I then think of someone like my cousin Ross. In my eyes very successful, but far from famous. He has done what he wants to do, started dive shops out of Nicaragua, month long road trips with his girl friend, jobs on crew ships beer, friends and money with his job as a journalist. He’s 27. What do they both have...
...4. What are the pros and cons of management using theexperience curve to determine strategy?
The experience curve is an idea developed by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in the mid-1960s. Working with a leading manufacturer of semiconductors, the consultants noticed that the company's unit cost of manufacturing fell by about 25% for each doubling of the volume that it produced. This relationship they called the experience curve: the more experience a firm has in producing a particular product, the lower are its costs. However, if the decline in cost is fast if growth is fast and slow if growth is slow.
The strategic implications of the experience curve came closer to shattering earth. For if costs fell (fairly predictably) with experience, and if experience was closely related to market share (as it seemed it must be), then the competitor with the biggest market share was going to have a big cost advantage over its rivals. This was the logical underpinning of the idea of the growth share matrix. The experience curve justified allocating financial resources to those businesses (out of a firm's portfolio of businesses) that were (or were going to be) market leaders in their particular sectors. This, of course, implied starvation for those businesses that were not and never would be market leaders.
Labour efficiency - Workers become physically more dexterous. They become mentally more confident and spend less time hesitating, learning, experimenting, or making...
...Education is the Key to Success and a Better Life
As we all know education is one of the most important things in life. Education is what helps us human beings succeed and make a difference. Us Americans are all given the opportunity to attend free public grade school, but some of us don’t take that advantage and send it all to waste, not knowing that their are many other kids in the world that don’t have this same opportunity that we have. For example in Kenya children are not all given that opportunity of having free grade school education. Many of them don’t even know how to spell out their own name nor do they know how to read. The one’s responsible for not having education for these children are obviously the government.
As shown in the movie “The First Grader” their main issue was education, it was not being offered for free until a while later the government opened a small primary school in Kenya. Many parents tried getting their children enrolled so they could get a free education. An 84 year old man by the name Maruge also tried attending but was told no because he was not properly dressed, so he being as poor as he was, was motivated to go buy some old clothes and fixed them up a bit he later was let into the school by teacher Jane, knowing she could get in big trouble risked it. She was motivated to help Maruke learn the basics...
...Key to Success
What is education? According to the Oxford Pocket Dictionary of Current English it is defined as “the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university and the theory and practice of teaching”. In my opinion success requires not only formal education but the positive attitude, drive and vision through informal education.
What is formal education? It is the interaction between students and a teacher that is required for a student to obtain some sort of people pursue formal education in the hope that obtaining a degree or certificate will open the window of opportunity, help them gain social status and financial security. Education obtained in school teaches essential skills for the working world and it changes and mold behaviour of an individual so that the person will become a responsible for member of society. Two years ago, one of my teachers said “To be a productive member in our society, you need to get a formal education”. This statement seems to be true when one considers that we live in a complex and competitive society; many jobs are unavailable to those without an education. For example, in order to be a nurse, a person needs a nursing certificate from a recognized educational institution and pass the national...
