As digital education is becoming ever more prevalent in our society, finding the motivation to complete online courses is much easier than back in the day. Since many of us aren’t dedicated to school, online courses can act as a good alternative for anyone that needs to fit online learning into their schedule.
Personal Account Of Someone Who Had To Did Online Learning Instead Of Traditional
I didn’t have my best day. I watched as my world crumbled before my eyes. After telling my friend, Nira, I would be working late, she called to complain I was working from home. My social life suffered greatly.
Work-Life Balance Has Become the Ultimate Dilemma in Corporate America
It’s hard to bounce back from anything I deal with on a daily basis, and I took the Nira-Cancer-of-Depression punch to the gut. Anybody who knows me would know if I didn’t bounce back. It’s important to remember that life is about being an imperfect human being.
The same thing goes for my career as well. At one point, I was in a job I hated and wanted out of. I had to walk out the door like I was worth nothing and start over. I feel lucky that I got up the courage to do that, but not everyone does. Yet, I did eventually land a job I loved.
The big truth is, when you are living and breathing the stress of making it in the “real world,” it’s easy to become overwhelmed. It’s a natural reaction when our life becomes what we predict it will be. And the only thing that can take your mind off of that is putting it on an external task.
People Can Rely on the Internet If They Have To
Before I digress, here is the point of this article: people can rely on the internet if they have to and they can use it as an extension of their day to day.
Even in the start of my career, I was able to go back to school and do a Master’s degree. I completed my degree online and for the most part completed it in four years. I realize I have an “obligation” to set an example for my kids and show them how it is to do homework, study, read in class and more. I still work full time and have three kids under the age of five, and this is the ultimate reality of life on a daily basis.
I discovered I could use my psychology background as an emotional intelligence instructor. This taught me a lot more about how to deal with people and myself. I still do a mix of lectures and sitting in on classes. If I can gain any level of success after all of this, I hope my story can inspire the youth and people of all ages.
Life is Complicated and I Get it
I definitely get why many people don’t take personal responsibility for their happiness. They were born out of control by circumstance, and for the most part they still look at the issues and bad habits they acquire as “their own.” When you live life that way you will end up having issues with yourself. Or just being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or not taking things seriously and putting things on autopilot.
It’s important to realize how much you can control your own life by not waiting for anyone else to “help” you. Even though most of us are sitting somewhere (usually at home) doing something we don’t want to do, we can at least use the internet as an extension of our day, and if the work isn’t exciting, we can certainly use it as a goal post or a way to hang out with others.
Simply put, I never made the mistake of giving up on myself.
We all have a spiritual foundation, we are all wired differently but I have come to understand through my experiences that nothing in this world is free. Life is an emotional state of being (probably because the universe is an emotional state of being).
Sometimes there’s a reason why we need to do this type of work and sometimes we simply need to follow our instincts, aka pray.
This holiday season, if you haven’t forgotten how much you need to give back to the world and to your kids then make sure you hear my story. If you do, there will be a snowball effect of others picking up a copy and read it. You don’t have to be one of the brilliant social media influencers I’m an example of (although sometimes I am!) to reach out and experience someone I’ve loved… or not loved… so profoundly.
Truly, we all have an opportunity to tell a story and change the world. So, use the opportunity. Look within, embrace your addiction, and feel free to change the world.
