What does a person need to do in order to become highly educated?

I have a strong desire to become highly educated. I would like to become one of the greatest scholars of my generation. I have been wondering what I need to do to realize this dream. Is college education enough for a person to be considered educated? I would like to hear from someone who understands what I want and believes his input is relevant to help me. Is careering an important factor on the journey towards becoming an educated person?

I would like to encourage you to work hard to realize your dreams. Being highly-educated brings a lot of benefits not only to you, but also to the society at large. Some parents may approach you with a request to mentor their children. You will be a role model and parents will want their child to look up at you for inspiration. When you become educated, you get an opportunity to teach what you know to those without knowledge. As a result, you can act as the guiding force behind those seeking to have knowledge about something.

The choice of your career has a major impact on your chances of becoming highly knowledgeable. It is advisable to pursue something that you like doing. For instance, if you love economics, choosing to work as an economics tutor can boost your chances of becoming highly knowledgeable in the field. Making your hobby your profession boosts your productivity. Besides, it increases your desire to know more about that subject and seek to respond to unaddressed issues. If you want to become highly educated in a given area, look for online platforms that discuss such issues and become a contributor.

To become distinctively educated, you need to join a college for education. Since you are in high school, put enough effort to secure a place in a good college. If you perform very well in your high school exams, it becomes easier to find scholarship when joining a college. Furthermore, when you choose to study something you like at the college, you will have higher chances of performing well. This will then make it easier for you to secure a job in that field. In addition, you will advance your studies even while working without any difficulty.

Becoming a highly educated person is not easy. The rules of becoming one are also not well defined. Many factors come into play when pursuing your dream. Although most factors have been found to be uniform to all people, others are different from one person to another. Personally, you must have strong desire to achieve your dream. You must be able to overcome the many challenges that will always come across as an individual. Being among the most educated people in a given society comes with a cost. Sometimes it means staying away from your family for a long time. The other times it means losing your friends or people you have worked with to pursue your dreams. All in all, it is something that is worth the sacrifice.

I have never seen the importance of being highly educated in any society. The most successful people in the world are not necessarily the most educated. Choosing to become very educated may make you lose
contact with the real world. This is mainly because it demands to spend most of your time studying. You get overexposed to academic things. In addition, due to the rapid technological innovations taking place in the society, I wouldn’t advise you to spend most your time in school. Machines are replacing humans in many companies at an alarming rate. You may spend your time studying something and by the time you are through, there is a machine to do the same thereby making all that effort irrelevant. Although many people say that it is beneficial to follow such a dream, I believe the cost is not worth it at all. What is the essence of leaving your family for education? Your family needs you very much and there are a lot of things that they miss when you are away. Your contribution to your family in terms of spending time together cannot be replaced by anything else.
