FOOD 4 THOUGHT


 

It’s important to take a step back and reflect once in a while.  Enjoy this quote and see if you can find a way to relate it to your life.

 

“Education is one thing no one can take away from you.”  -BB King

 

BB King was an American blues singer and songwriter.  He also knew how to play instruments including an electric guitar and used his knowledge of music to inspire the world.  His passion required dedication and other aspects of his life suffered as a result, but he always had the foundation of his musical knowledge to fall back on and was eventually able to create a legacy worth millions of dollars. 

 

King, then, was able to give back to others and aimed towards educating the youth.  One of his notable contributions was supporting a nonprofit organization called Little Kids Rock, which provided musical instruments and classes at public schools to underprivileged children in the United States.  He was involved in numerous other causes-all were motivated by a common objective:  to educate others.  No matter what the cause was, King knew the first step was always through education.  Once people are educated, they can come together and create great things. 

 

Despite how rough the road ahead of you is, whatever you learn along the way is yours forever.  Unless you’re unfortunate enough to suffer a brain injury, once you learn something you will know it always, which means you can use that knowledge as a tool throughout your life.  Focusing on something like a car will only bring you happiness for a few years before it breaks down, but focusing instead on something like learning a new skill will benefit you for a lifetime.  If you want to invest in your future, invest in your education and bank of knowledge.  It’s the account that will pay you back the most in the future!
