If you have heard or read the speech that President Obama gave to school children on September 8, then you might be feeling a spot of motivation, plus optimistic about your future or that of your children.
Whether it is you who is looking to complete further education, or whether you just want to see your kids do well, there are some lessons to work and ideas to take in mind from this controversial yet highly regarded speech that was given by the President.
One of the best parts of the speech was when Obama said:
“No matter what you want to do with your life – I guarantee that you’ll need an education to do it. You want to be a doctor, or a teacher, or a police officer? You want to be a nurse or an architect, a lawyer or a member of our military? You’re going to need a good education for every single one of those careers.”
So what is it that Obama wants? Some of the main points to be taken from the address include:
1. Encouraging students of all ages to do well at every task and subject.
2. To be motivated and see the benefit of all education.
3. To reduce the drop out rate of high school students which can be as high as 30% in some areas.
4. To get more people into college to get degrees, so that they are qualified to obtain a high paying and rewarding job.
5. To make people see that education is the key to a happy, fulfilling and successful life.
Whether you are an adult or school student, this inspiring speech and its message should motivate you to go forth and achieve your dreams – whatever they may be.
