Day 24: Hard Lesson Learned

Day 24 of the 30 day challenge asks about a lesson that I have learned the hard way.

The lesson I learned the hard way was my education. I have already explained my secondary education problems in previous posts.  Because I never tried that hard in school when it came to coursework and I was never very good with exams and the pressure that comes with exams. I never did that well in regards to grades, the only subject that I really tried at all with was GNVQ Applied ICT, resulting in my highest GCSE grade which was a merit.

Because of not trying in school, resulting in poor grades, this limited what courses I could take in college, in the end I completed an IT course; before eventually going the direction of completing business studies diplomas and BA degree.

But, because of my grades, I had a limited options on college courses I could choose, because some of the courses that I may have been interested in requires grades in English and Mathematics that I did not have.

So I learned a hard lesson when choosing my course for college because I realized that if I tried harder in my school subjects, I would have had more course options to choose from. Thinking back on my past now, I think that if I tried harder, and was able to choose a different college course would my career path be different.

So not applying myself when I could, was a hard lesson to learn, so I decided to work with what I had and applied myself to my college and University courses to achieve the diplomas and BA degree that I now have.

Because of this lesson, if anyone comes to me for advise about how to achieve what they want, I would tell them to apply themselves. Because as long as they work hard for what they want, they will be able to achieve the goal they set out for themselves.
