Why It Is Important To Gain Skills Or Skill Yourself
When You Realize You Are Skilled - Stand Out
I have seen and been convinced that when you are skillful and you choose to standout, there are great rewards that come with it. We can tell of people like Michael Jordan who was looked down by his coaches earlier but that did not stop him from believing himself and his abilities. What he did in the NBA is very historical, every child born even in this time knows the name Michael Jordan. Many other great athletes like Lebron James, Kobe Bryant say, that they wanted to be like Mike because he set a standard and inspired them.
See The Gap, Don't Talk Too Much, Just Work At It
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.
When you start out something, have a plan, be determined and don't let your focus down.
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. 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.
Your Surroundings, Friends etc can be a source of Inspiration
"Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune" - Jim Rohn
I have learnt a number of things from them and what stands out is their drive to educate themselves on a subject they are interested in or passionate about. If you want to be a leadership coach or Gym Trainer, do whatever it takes to learn about that trade. There should be no room for excuses, knowledge is out there, it is only laziness that is costing us.
So gain SKILLS and lets skill Uganda and many other people.
