I have many friends, those who have only little money to spend on education, like me. I am not poor, but I don’t have enough money to invest on education. For them, I would like to advice to make a self-study.
People cannot die by poverty. People die because their mind die. I also have many friends who don’t study as they don’t have money. For me Internet is the big network for me to learn. I learn programming, content writing, knowledge and information related to digital marketing. Sometime, I can even share my knowledge to my friends. I apply it to my work. Even if I don’t know how to fix the problem in the computer, Google give me a website where I can get the solution to fix the problem.
Apart from internet, I deal with many people from many field and background. I talk with them, spend my time with them and share idea and experiences. Then I read many books. Even thought these are not formal way to raise our knowledge and profession, It raise us to a level where we have enough skill to work and to live in life.
Some of my friends are not still studying. Their reason is that they don’t have money. Actually money is not the problem. The problem is their mindset. They think they cannot study due to lack of money. We can see many greatest people in the world who led the countries and their field by self-study skill. They read lots of book, they learned from environment and apply it to life to get their goal.
It’s not late if you can change your mindset. Don’t every feel sadness for you cannot afford to attend MBA, Bachelors, Masters, Diploma courses and international universities. Be proud of you can learn by self-study skill.
