The 3 Most Valuable things I Learned that School Didn’t Teach
Passion– I find it interesting that grade 1-12 asks all people to fit one model. I never had a class that helped define my passion for what lit me up. What I needed was someone to charge my battery not drain it. My goal with Noah University is to help individuals arrive at their sweet spot as soon as possible. I believe there is a revolution of individuals that have locked dreams, passions and building their own company or idea in their heart. I believe the world is waiting for those people to tell their story. The challenge is, no one is showing
How to be your own Brand– We live in a culture that advertises, get plugged into the education system, work on an assembly line, work for a company for 30 years of your life and retire, gather all you can and then survive retirement. They advertise dreams as hobbies. I’m proposing that we shift the paradigm.
What if you graduate high school already building your dream. And, what if the driver for the dream wasn’t money. Most kids get a degree in something they think will make great money but there’s no heart in it because it isn’t their dream. I started my own business while in high school. I wish education bred dreamers and bred vision. What if school was the shaping of your dream becoming reality rather than something kids dread? Now I know why I never fit. The sooner we as humans realize we are uniquely designed with specific gifts and specialties the sooner we can move into our true identity.
How Much Relationships Matter- Whether you want to accept it or not, when you reach adulthood you will come face to face with the reality of the world and the people in it. Especially in the marketplace of career. The most valuable thing I learned is the value of relationships and the art of people. Learning that what matters most is connecting with people, their heart and sharing in an experience. There’s way more to life than making something “cool” and “striving after riches”.
