Dear Next President:
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” (Nelson Mandela) Hello, I would like to bring education to your mind, which I would really like to do, since I think that in the current time that we live in, education is an extremely important thing that people really need to have, yet people still can not get an education, in the U.S., and even in other countries. This, I believe is extremely unfair, since to me, the better of an education you have, the happier you can live your life, since if you want a job as a scientist, you have to know science, so if you don’t get the formal education that you get at a school, then you almost always won’t be able to get that job.
Another thing about education is that I very much believe, is that education leads to a great, happy, successful life. If you think about life, it goes like this, birth, then school, then college, then work, then retirement, and lastly death, and in all of those categories when you are living, you have lots of time to do whatever you want to make yourself happy, except for work. So, in order to have a great time in work, you do what you love. But without a proper education in the category you love, you can’t have a job doing that.
The last thing that I would like to address to you about education, is that I believe that the less education you have, the more prone you are to making mistakes that could possibly harm others. For an example, if you get a job a scientist’s assistant, but you don’t know anything about different types of chemicals that he/she is using, you could possibly create an explosion or a cloud of poison, harming anyone in the area. Yet, with an excellent education, that same exact person could expertly have been able to properly get the chemical or chemicals, perchance creating a new cure or something that could be practically revolutionary to the present day and world, which would be positively perfect for people.
Please keep in mind what I have just said about education, as I firmly believe that education is a great thing and that everyone should have the privilege of receiving one, no matter what race, gender, religious group, ethnic group, amount of money, or stance in life, and I very much thank you for reading this.
Good day there, this essay was one of my school assignments, i would really appreciate any help or advise about my mistakes made in this essay, especially my grammar. Thank you very much :)
What is the definition of success? Some define success as the acquisition of wealth: to some others, it is the accomplishment of the goal aimed at. And how does education becomes the key to success? In today`s modern and competitive society, it is undeniable that we must equip ourselves with plenty of knowledge and skills in order to shine and to be successful in life. Many opine that the aforementioned aspects are mostly obtained through learning in academic institutions. I do agree with the opinion that education is the key to success. Nevertheless, I feel that one can also become successful without education.
First and foremost, it is certainly true that education is of paramount importance for people intending to join certain professions such as doctor, engineer and lawyer. With proper training and knowledge, it would be impossible for them to perform their best in their careers, not to mention to be successful in the field of area. Education can equip one to the fullest extent possible of knowledge related to his or her field of career, adequately equipped him or her with the necessary knowledge allows one to perform better than the rest and make them more successful than the rest. Hence, education is the key to success in the certain area of careers.
The characters and the qualities of a person also affects one`s ability to be successful. Even if they are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to be successful in their professions, without the correct mindset, they will not be able to overcome obstacles and persevere to the end. Making them unsuccessful in reaching their goals. Educations in schools or institutions help to inculcate the desirable qualities into individuals for them to become successful in life. Thus, education helps in the formation of the character with desirable qualities to become successful.
However, if we take a look from another perspective of success - the acquisition of wealth, some of the world richest and successful men were in fact school drop-outs. Some of the notable successful school drop outs were Steve jobs and Bill gates. Steve Jobs was the lead mind behind one of the most successful company in the world- Apple, never graduated from college, or even gets close to that. Bill Gates is the second wealthiest man on the planet, chairman of one of the most successful corporations- Microsoft, was in fact a university drops out. This proves that education may not be necessary as the key to success.
In addition, people with natural talents are also most likely to excel in their life. This is especially true in sectors like entertainment and sports. Education cannot teach how one should be funny or humorous, but it is an innate quality that one is born with. One example is Jacky Wu, currently ranked as one of the most popular and richest entertainers in Taiwan, known worldwide for his quick witted humor and open fire talks. Hence, it is evident that individuals born with talents have a better chance to be more successful.
In conclusion, it is indeed true that education is the key to success. But, it would be wrong to say that one`s success completely depends on the education he or she receives. Natural talent and hard work also contribute to their success.
