Answer #5

By most standards on this website, I’m just flat out really, really, really old. So, I virtually have one foot in the grave and the other one on a banana peel.

I have already lived most of my productive life and have already made a lot of the mistakes that many younger people are doomed to make for themselves inspite of any advice they get in life to the contrary.

However, when I was younger, the thing I wanted the most to be was “deversified”. I seriously did not want to learn only one thing, or one occupations, and simply die doing it. I wanted to learn “many” things, and “be” many things. There is just so much in life to live and learn. I just didn’t want to go brain dead by only focusing on one thing and just doing that in life. As a result, I ended up with four bachelor’s degrees, a master’s degree in fine arts, and several diplomas and certificated from various courses and trade schools. … I suppose more like a “professional student” for a period in time. Nobody ever said that you could only be “one” thing in your lifetime (think about it).

So, what did all that essentric lifestyle teach me?

First, it taught me that most of the things that you can be in life are all “inter-connected”. They all relate to each other in one way or another. You simply cannot successfully learn one thing fully without involving yourself in other fields of study as well. It is impossible.

It taught me that absolutely “no” educational system can totally prepare you for every single thing that will happen to you in your chosen career in life. Therefore, the main lesson to be learned in any field of study is how to “TEACH YOURSELF”.

You just never stop learning in life. You have to constantly keep up with the current developments in your chosen field long after your formal schooling is done. You have to think of yourself in life as more of an “information sponge”. You learn from every place, and everyone, that you can. AND, later on in life… you must remember that it will be your job to apply every single thing that you have learned in life and come up with at least “one” single thing that makes the world a better place because you were in it along the way. Don’t just croak and take all that hard earned learning to the grave with you without doing something really “serious” with it. Remember, it took “many” generations to put a human into space successfully… not just one. By teaching yourself, you can stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before you and always build a higher, and a better mountain.

And, perhaps another important issue that I learned was to keep your occupation close to your interests as if your occupation were a “hobby”. To be successful in any field at all, there is a price to pay. And, most often, that price is your time invested. If you are not very fond of your job and have to spend more time at it… then you will simply grow to hate what you do. But if you “really” love your work because it is also your “hobby”… then you can spend much more time at what you do, you’ll enjoy it more, you’ll get better at it, you’ll most often get paid better (not to mention that your “occupation” is merely a “paid hobby”), and you’ll really end up loving what you do for a living in the end. This can affect your mental disposition, your finances, your family life overall and your health.

So, what you choose to be, or do, in life can really help you to live a much more successful, healthier and happier life. For you, and all those around you in the present, and in the future. Throughout your life, always challenge yourself mentally.

It is a very important decision in life that you don’t want to take lightly. You seriously “can” be what ever you make your mind up to be. Some things just have a much higher price tag attached to them is all. But if you remain “who” you are, and do “what” you love to do… then you will be successful all the way around.

My father always handed me the old saying, “It doesn’t matter what you do in life. Even if all you do is dig ditches. Just dig the very best ditch that you are able to dig and you will never be out of work and you will never starve”.

Well, I never had to dig ditches for a living, but I love what I do and I get up very early each and every day to go to work. I work two full time jobs and I really hate it when the day is over and I have to wait until tomorrow so that I can continue what I was doing.

Don’t just say, “I want to be…”… “design” your life so that you “will” be. Work toward it every single day of your life and you will find that you have been ever so much more than you could have initially thought possible. Be creative, think outside the box, and live life to it’s fullest. You only go through this life one time… so make it the very best “once” that you have ever had.
