As a parent, the most important legacy that we could give our children is education. Unlike tangible things, education is something that will not decrease in value even after a lifetime.
As quoted from Nelson Mandela, "Education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world." Indeed, the value of education in the life of any individual is beyond question. It could transform you into a better person and it could change your lives more than you can imagine. I have proven this to myself so many times. I was able to travel my way up to the corporate ladder in an instant because of having the advantage of higher education. This could set you apart from other applicants. This could increase your potential for higher positions. This could even help you get financial rewards.
As early as now, I am already encouraging my children to pursue a higher education. It would be more suitable if they can enroll in reputable schools and getting masters in business administration from Denver University would be a better option. However since we know that education now a days comes with a hefty price tag, it would also be good to choose a school that would best suit our budget. After all, learning is not only a privilege given to those who are well off. It should be a goal of every individual whatever their social and economic standings are. On a side note, having equipped with a proper education increases our self worth and self esteem as this sets us apart from the rest. It could be especially more meaningful for those who do not have anything but the privilege of being educated.
I especially encourage young women to pursue higher studies as this could help them to be more effective in their role as parents. As what Jane Austen once said and I quote, “Give a girl an education and introduce her properly into the world, and ten to one but she has the means of settling well, without further expense to anybody. ” Indeed, an MBA degree could take your career into the next level. This would position yourselves ahead of anybody. In the long run, the result would be quite fulfilling as you will not only reap financial rewards but a prestige of being respected and looked up to by people in the society.
