College Education Levels The Playing in Today’s Economy: Conquering College Education For a Better Life

in College

Why I insist that you need a college education in today’s economy?

Today more than ever, you need some form of higher education beyond high school. It can be a one-year certificate program, an associate degree or a two-year technical degree. You want to have a piece paper that proves that you have been trained to perform a task at an acceptable level. An employer wants to see that you can start something and finish it. This is proof that you have ambition, self-discipline and the ability to persevere. If you have the ambition and the ability to pursue a four-year education, you will create a better opportunity to make more money and live a better life for the most part. I am well aware of that you can create a great income with a two-year technical degree depending on the major that you choose.

In today’s ever changing work world, you will need some form of technical training to have any chance of landing a decent paying job. With the escalating cost of living in today’s economy, a minimum wage job is not going to help you in pursuit of independent living. I am adamant that everyone who wants to live a nice life needs to pursue a college degree. Not only will a college education improve your life, but it will also improve the life of your children and the life of their children.  I speak from a personal experience as a father and a grandfather. 

Can a college education level the playing field for you?

The only thing that can level the playing field in any society is education. For most people on this planet, the only way they can better their life is through education. In the United States (the best country in the world), anyone who wants to create a better life can by either attending a vocational/technical high school or they can attend a college/university. A college education can afford you the ability to make an income that will allow you the opportunity to live a comfortable life. How much money you will make depends on the major that you choose and your personal ambition.

Will your attainment of a college degree level the playing field for your children and future generations? The answer is YES

We are all role models for our friends, our children and our grandchildren. You will be amazed at how many people you will inspire in your lifetime. By getting a college degree, you will be a role model for your children and your grandchildren. Because you went to college, it is most likely that your children will go to college, which will level the playing field for them. This is the perfect example of paying it forward because each generation will do their best to better the life of the next generation. For this reason, you will never be able to repay your parents for all that they have done for you. You can only do the same or better for your children (paying it forward).
