Education is the means by which we can grow in any area in our lives that we choose. We simply have to decide what we want to know about, and then get started by investigating that subject until we amass sufficient knowledge to be able to have a full understanding of it. This is getting educated and is much more than you'll ever get at school or college.

Why do I say that?

Well, schools and colleges teach you a lot of things that you will need to pass exams and get qualifications that prospective employers rely on to gauge your proficiency in certain subjects. What they don't teach you is how to use that knowledge! School and college curriculums are designed to get you so far, but they simply do not teach you the practical side of life that you need to know in order to really make a success of it.

Mystery is another word for ignorance and ignorance is overcome by understanding. Getting an understanding in the things that are important in life should be your goal once leaving your formal educational system and stepping out into the real world.

Health Education

Of course the primary kind of learning that many people really need to get to grips with is all about heir own personal health. Far too many people allow themselves to get unhealthy purely through ignorance and that is simply because no one ever taught them what the really needed to know about nutrition, fitness or diet!

There are a great many ways to remedy this situation but in the main it requires that a person takes control of their own life and goes looking for the information that will help them. This is often something that many are loathe to do through a mindset that rules them that goes something like, "it's someone else's job to teach me what I need to know."

Of course, those that wait for someone else to help them end up getting nothing done and not advancing in their education one jot. The old saying, "if you want something done, you have to do it yourself," is apt here.

The results you get will depend on how much you are prepared to do what you need for yourself and that includes self educating through research and investigation. The Internet is a marvelous tool for gaining information and simple to use to find what you need. So use it!
