Why Do You Want a Degree?

by : Ryan Mckenzie

There are many reasons people seek degrees in today’s day and age. As a grown adult, it may seem like an unrealistic goal, but it is achievable. You may be sick of your job, you may want more money, or you may just want to try something completely different from out of left field. All of these are justifiable reasons to seek out a higher education.

Even if your reasons are not related to your job or potential career, getting an education is beneficial regardless if it is only for the sake of learning. After all, knowledge is power and the more you know, the easier time you will have in life. The only thing you really need when seeking out a degree or an education is a goal. A goal will keep you on track and prevent you from giving up. Set a goal and stick to it no matter what, you are the only person you need to impress.

Envision yourself with your degree; Do you like what you see? A smarter, more educated person; somebody sought after by the workforce and envied by your friends. If you like this vision, figure out what drives you to pursue this education, set a goal and accomplish it!
