Don’t let them ever tell you that you’re not qualified …
It’s more times than I can remember. Doing something that I’m not (officially or formally) qualified to do, that is.
Trouble is, we live in a society that instils in us (if we allow it) the belief that you must have formal qualifications to achieve anything in life, and I just hate that! It’s so disempowering for those poor (particularly young) people who grow up believing they will be failures because they have no ‘education’.
And yet, when we look at the evidence, it’s complete bollocks!
I’m passionate about telling young people who will fail academically that they can be as successful as they choose – their lack of formal qualifications will have no impact whatsoever on their life success or happiness – that is, unless they choose to let it.
Trouble is, getting them to believe it is the challenge.
The government should be hung, drawn and quartered in my estimation, for brainwashing us into the belief that ‘everyone has the right to go to university’ when we know, psychologically, that this implies that if you don’t, you are a lesser mortal: shame on them.
Some people are particularly vulnerable to societal bollocks (my technical term), and the sooner we can dispel this anal nonsense the better.
Okay, I feel better now: rant over.
Have a nice day!
