Do you want to be successful? Or should I ask, do you want to make lots of money doing what ever it is that makes you happy?
Now that I have your attention, I know the secret to being successful. If you really enjoy something, the best thing you could do is read about it.
For me, I love making movies, creating the story, setting up the scenes, and then editing it all together. Its a complex process that takes a lot of practice and skill, and one of the prerequisites is that you must be creative. If you aren’t creative, have no fear, there is something out there for you! Yes, YOU!
If you pick up a book about the subject that you love, reading and learning about whatever it is cannot be all that bad. Even if you aren’t the reading type, you can find something that peaks your interest, and on the plus side, it will increase your reading comprehension.
I grew up as a lonely teenager, and the only people who were willing to play with me (or unwilling because I forced them to) were my two little brothers. I had friends at school, but that’s all they were, just friends that I talked to while I was at school. The other thing that I had was books, I could pick up a book and get lost in an imaginary world, living out whatever adventures that the characters would go on, or more often I picked up books about animals, or history. Whatever I decided to read, I read.
Learning is an essential trait in today’s world, there is no way you won’t be learning to do something. I know there are people out there who will be like “I ain’t gonna learn nothin.” If you aren’t learning, then how are you scamming the government to get welfare checks? You had to learn how to do that. If you start a new job, you have to learn the skills in order to be successful at the job.
So, in short, if you want to be successful, pick up a book at your local library. It’s inexpensive, and you don’t have to go to college to learn what books can hold. Also, if y0u are attending college, books can help enhance the techniques and theories that you are learning about in class.
