Things I Never Learned In High School:
- How to do taxes
- What taxes are
- How to vote
- How to write a resume / cover letter
- Anything to do with banking
- How to apply for loans for college
- How to buy a car or house
- ...but, thank my lucky stars, I can tell you all about Pythagorean Theorems
I began thinking how my life would have been different had I been a student of personal development in high school. When I am speaking to people, especially educators about our curriculum, I mention that it is ideal for any student who is making a transition; whether from middle school to high school, high school to college, or college to the adult world. The power of the curriculum is in how we learn to stay in alignment with our core beliefs. When that happens, success is ours and the law of attraction is in our favor.
I never ask “what if,” but rather ask “what is to come?” I do know this. If I had studied personal development during my middle school and high school years as I do today, then those days would have been different. I would have had a better grasp on how to make decisions rather than sulking because I had lost a parent. I would have embraced my passion rather than feeling embarrassed. I would have acknowledged that a bold new world existed and that world was part of my journey and my destination.
Today, and I so wish then, I endorse two amazing principles of life: Believe and Be Happy.
