This is a guest post by Peter Minkoff. This is the first guest post on the blog. So how can education help you be a better person?
How Can Education Help You
Be a Better Person
Saying that education makes one a better person has nothing to do with kindness and attitude one has towards other people. Actually, the more you know, the more you grow. Meaning, people who aspire to learn more every day become better for their own sake. They become more able to process, understand and accept the situations in life. As well as reflect on themselves and their own ability to deal with problems and bring about some kind of change. Basically, exercising your mind builds a stronger heart.
Financially secured life
Starting from the basics, the undeniable truth is that education really can make your life better. If you are educated, you have great chances to find a good job, go independent and earn enough money to take control over your life. While earning their own living thanks to education they received, people change from within. They become more grateful for the things they have in life, more analytic in their need to spend and consume and profoundly more organized in their daily lives.
Now, no one can say that people with less education cannot have all that. But it is a fact that these steps happen faster to those who are happy with their career and education choice with constant need to improve in their field.
In general, people who are educated are more willing to take up challenges regarding their personal and professional life. This means that someone who is well aware that the road to success is difficult is not going to give up that easily when the times become rough. Unfamiliar settings and tasks one has to face in work environment will be seen as a way to grow even more. While relationships will tend to be more lasting as they won’t fall apart due to minor problems.
Basically, people who spent their time learning and enriching their mind know that difficulties and rough patches are the part of life and that the strength one puts in overcoming problems can be well worth the effort.
Ability for adapting and self-value
Adaptability is a highly valued trait and educated people tend to adapt to different situation in life better. They have already had enough experience in adapting to different schedules and occasions they encountered while studying. They are able to understand that changes and setbacks can happen and they don’t waste energy stressing about them.
Going with the flow is an important skill, no matter if one has to adapt to new living conditions or job responsibilities. While they can adapt almost effortlessly, people who know how to value themselves and their knowledge are also not afraid to complain or stand their ground when they realize that some of the new obligations are completely unreasonable.
Logic in the matters of the heart
Educated people are more likely to think with their head instead of their heart. This does not mean that they won’t show emotions when necessary. On the contrary, they show a lot of affection to those who are deserving of their trust. Still, they have been developing their logical skill for years which enables those who are well-educated to think on their own. Notice different kinds of behaviors in other people. Choose for themselves who to open up to, distinguish right from wrong in detail and defend their own views with arguments.
They also don’t have a problem with accepting new attitudes when presented with valid arguments. Therefore, they find it necessary, no matter how hard it is, to cut out people who put them down in life and to accept the current pain as just a part of the road to future happiness.
Healthy body and healthy mind is something educated people take very seriously. Basically, they are well aware of the importance of taking care of their physical self. It’s no wonder that those who travel the road of education spend some of their free time working out, creating proper diet plans and leading a healthy lifestyle in general.
Combining mindfulness and physical activity by practicing yoga and even obtaining yoga certification in order to pass on their mental and physical well-being is not uncommon. They usually want to spread their knowledge and discoveries to others in order to show how something as simple as yoga positions can improve the quality of one’s life.
Investing in education for yourself and especially your children will not only grant financial satisfaction, but more importantly emotional balance and good health. All leads to personal growth. The world needs more people who know how to work hard, think with their own heads and find happiness in the smallest of things.
