Escape The Rat Race, See Why You Need to Think Past The Four Walls of a Classroom.

0 40

What is a rat race and how will I ever go past
the four walls of a classroom?

Let’s get real, don’t you think the Educational
system is blindfolding us? did we really need to go to school at all?

I think we have to, I mean without getting to
know the basics of reading, writing, counting and calculating, you can’t
possibly be able to live a standard life in this our civilized world and most
especially technological advanced world, the educational system helps in
building the foundation pretty well.
But then do we need to stick to the plan? As you
grow you are put into schools, kindergarten, primary and secondary schools,
colleges… and whether we like it or not those facilities forge who we become.
The fact that the educational systems lay bricks
for us doesn’t mean they must be the builders of our lives.
Institutions bring us up from the starting points
of our lives, they teach us how to read, write and speak eloquently and help us
to understand what we want to do with our lives, that is, our career paths.
But when you get into the university, you come to
the realization that there’s more to life than what you were taught. You
realize that to actually venture into the career path you’ve chosen for
yourself, you need to acquire more skills and knowledge that you will not be
taught in the confines of a classroom.
At that point, you really decide who you want to
be, you find out if the course you got into the university for is really the
path you want to follow or not. Whether we believe it or not, the fact still
remains that the true lessons of life are taught outside the four walls of a classroom.
As Robert Kiyosaki stated in his book the
“Rich Dad, Poor Dad”. we have to get out of the rat race.
But what is the rat race?

The rat race is going into the same direction
over and over again, like running in circles and if we look into our educational
systems very well you can notice that we’ve been moving into the same direction
for centuries, they put us in schools to study hard for us to get a well-paying
job and then we do this same thing to our own children and teach them to do the
same thing to their own children. 
This keeps going on, trapping us in the rat race.
Going to the school itself is not a problem but what
are they teaching, the same things they taught us a decade ago, the same things
that many have to dumb immediately after college.
We might be taught theory in class but it only
gets practical when we leave our comfort and expand our horizons. We need to
acquire knowledge, current knowledge because, in schools, it’s the same things
we’re taught over and over and you cannot be current with past information.
The classroom is a room for formal learning and
formal listening, the teachers only teach what they were asked to teach, but
outside we learn from people’s experiences.
We learn what we really want, what really
motivates us, and what will finally bring the life we’ve been dreaming about.
Think about this, what is the main reason for
putting a child in school?
I know you’re going to reply “to get
knowledge” which is really great, but there is that loyal part of you that

Sure that is the real truth, we need knowledge
but without the possibilities of becoming rich in the future, or at least getting
enough money to take care of ourselves and family, many will reject the whole idea of going to school or training their children in schools.
But then did they really teach us how to make
this money in schools? I am just asking, you can answer me in the comment, I
think if we have been taught this subject “Money Making” from
Kindergarten to college, only God knows how many Billionaires we must have
gotten today, but NO! we learn good English, sciences which have a good part to
play in our world today, I agree with the advantages and then we learn math, we
learn a lot of equations which only God knows where they disappear to
immediately we left college.
The point is we have been learning just the same
things over and over, our educational systems have tried a lot in bringing
changes to the world but we need to go past the rat race.
We only become experts when we know the
theoretical and practical parts of something. Don’t be afraid to leave your
comfort, don’t be afraid to take risks and don’t be afraid to be disappointed
because if you allow fear to keep you in the four walls of a classroom, you
yourself, become a disappointment.
