Why You Should Make Education A Lifelong Goal

When you hear the term ‘education’ it’s easy to think of it as just something you get before you head off into the big wide world. You complete high school, perhaps gain a diploma or degree and then find yourself a good job and build your career.

But is that it?

Do you then live the rest of your working life based on the education you gained as a teenager and young adult? In my belief that is a sure fire way to find yourself in a rut and unsatisfied with your life.

The world is a fast moving place where new ideas and technology is developed every day. Our interests and desires change and grow as we get older. There is always something new to learn.

We are living in the age of information and technology. Never before has education been as readily accessible as it is now through the internet.

Education means freedom, success and fulfilment. People are at their happiest when they feel that they are growing and moving forward with their lives and when they feel like they can contribute and give value to others.

Educating yourself increases your personal value and therefore what you can personally contribute. Your personal success is directly proportional to your value to society.

Let me share with you my own personal experience..

There was a time not all that long ago when my life felt like it was less than inspiring to say the least. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a hard luck story. I’m a single mum of a beautiful daughter and I had my own place and a steady job but I felt like I just existed, I wasn’t really living.

It seemed like I’d get up for work each day, coast through the 9-5 doing a job I’d had for some time, to then go home cook dinner and sit on the couch in front of the TV with my daughter while we both stared at our iPhone/iPods.

Weekends were spent either with my daughter watching more TV and staring at little electronic screens or perhaps going on the occasional outing. When she was at her Dad’s I would often be out partying with my friends trying to have some fun after the very average week I’d just had.

It was a cycle of the same old thing week in, week out with no sign of progress. I needed to make a change!

I wanted to improve my career prospects, finances and my lifestyle. I wanted to do something that would ensure my daughter and I had a secure future and could enjoy more of what life has to offer. I wanted to feel as though I was excited about my life!

After searching through endless different courses of study that would get me further entrenched in the corporate world, I discovered something I hadn’t put much thought into before. I decided to get an education in the digital economy.

The Six Figure Mentors and Digital Experts Academy provide current and relevant education for you to learn how to become an Online Marketer and create your own Online Business with their proven business model.

Since becoming a member I have found a whole new world of possibilities has opened up for me.

Not only have I gained the skills, education, training, systems and tools to create my own online business as an Affiliate Marketer, I have also now discovered my passion for Personal Development and helping others succeed.

The flow on effect of this has led me to live a much happier, healthier and exciting lifestyle. I love listening to podcasts and audio books and sharing what I learn with others. My daughter and I are off the couch and spending a lot more quality time being active and engaged with each other and I have connected with many other likeminded and inspiring people from all over Australia and the world!

Make education a lifelong goal and create a Business and Lifestyle you love!

    I agreed Toni, education is some thing that has no limits for age, gender, culture or status. We all learn things until we died but the beauty is no body can take it way from us. This is what my parents taught always when I was small. SFM is one of the best milestones in my life.

      Hi Diluka, thank you for your comments. What a wonderful legacy for your parents to pass on. Education and learning is an essential part for our core happiness, it helps us to grow as individuals and help others. I agree with you, the SFM has opened so many amazing opportunities for me and I now have the confidence that I am creating a future and lifestyle that will ensure my success and provide financial security for my daughter and I for the rest of our lives! I love being able to share this as well, the digital economy provides abundance for all 🙂

  • You are either growing or dying, Learning and educating yourself is growing. If you aren’t doing that you are dying. As they say use it or loose it.

    There are lots of people out there just doing what they have to to get by, basically stuck in a rut. What’s a rut? a grave with no ends
