Why It Is Important To Gain Skills Or Skill Yourself


There are many opportunities but very few people with Skills to take them on. I have read in the papers through the years how the point of skilling University students is very important. Many have even been encouraged to go to Technical and Vocational Schools but somehow we have been trained to go to school, get a degree and then get a job but times have changed and the job or economic Market is not just after people with degrees but after people who can use their skills to improve lives, create more jobs and be Entrepreneurs etc.

When I was at work last year, I saw a gap that needed to be addressed and I knew that to address that gap, I need to gain some skills in using PHOTOSHOP, you know the process of learning is never easy, so i started on the journey by looking at YouTube videos for beginners, checking out how to do simple designs and hence input my ART skills and see what comes out and like a baby I took it one crawl and step at a time. I have improved a bit as am still learning and the skills are really coming in handy.

It is important for us to gain skills especially if you want to venture into something that can help you in the long run, sometimes you might not have the money to take you to a training but you have an Internet resource at your disposal, why not use it and enhance your skills. One day you could be talking and saying you can do this and that and it will be a great door opening for you. Learn a new skill and try and master it so that you can become good at it.

If you also have the money to take you for training, please invest in yourself. My good friend Andrew Odoch Umahtete, Edward Hire Yosia, Luwum Daniel have been great examples of acquiring knowledge of the different ventures they have gotten into, if you want to be a leadership coach or Gym Trainer, do whatever it takes to learn about that trade.

The bible says this in 1 Peter 2:5 (NIV) For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;
We need knowledge, this has been said a thousand times, knoweldge is important as it gives you the keys of what seemed unknown but is now known.

Proverbs 18:16 (KJV) says A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.
Your skill can become your gift. So gain SKILLS and lets skill Uganda and many other people.

Then when you have gained a skill don't be afraid to share and teach others, in teaching you are causing a ripple effect and your are taking yourself higher as people will begin to refer many to you and it can become a great source of income and networks as well.
Today, I post a video that I tried out using photoshop premier cs6 to develop, It is not the best, but I thought I could learn a few things with video editing, I took this video from my laptop and used the Photoshop at my disposal #Enjoy
