THE YCEO: A LETTER TO A RECENT AFRICAN GRADUAND

Self education is better than formal education
A LETTER TO A RECENT AFRICAN GRADUAND

AED describe self-education as the process of educating yourself (self cultivation).
Are you cultivating yourself or you left your entire process of personal cultivation to the already established systems set in place for you before you arrived here?
All formal education and every system available to you now in set in place to teach you literacy, how to behave efficiently in any organize society, how to work hard for another and to determine your placement in life (middle class).
Don't let this be you. Don't give a system that much power to decide your fate in life. You were made for something special, you came to us fully loaded, start unpacking, jail time is over. CONGRATULATIONS!
Now give real life a chance, rather than this sham life, college is gone.
Those who dare break out of it were termed rebel but are the one now changing our world and rewriting history. Get on board. Here's to the crazy ones!
Don't settle for less than you can become. Why be mediocre when you can be great? Engage the process, it's called self education (cultivation). It naturally releases your greatness. It's no cliche, there is greatness within you, placed there by your Maker Himself, from the very beginning. Your job now is to discover, cultivate and manifest that greatness to your world.
So this is not the end but the beginning for you, self education is the only education that really matters.
“Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is.”
- Isaac Asimov
I still say the only education worth anything is self-education.
- Robert Frost
“Actually, all education is self-education. A teacher is only a guide, to point out the way, and no school, no matter how excellent, can give you education. What you receive is like the outlines in a child’s coloring book. You must fill in the colors yourself.”
-Louis L'Amour
In conclusion, you may have stopped schooling but you just began learning, it takes you to the very top!
Congratulations!
