Your College Years Should Be Dedicated to Your Passions
University Professor, Douglas Dix,PhD, inspires college students to pursue what they love.
The top learners in our society are the most learned people, yet, a number of them choose to ignore several alarming truths in our world.
Contrary to what the majority says about choosing your major, Douglas Dix, PhD believes that the youth should be free to chase their dreams. More importantly, parents should be a pillar of support in their kids’ quest for knowledge. Dix believes that true education starts with the individual’s willingness to learn.
The top learners in our society are the most learned people, yet, a number of them choose to ignore several alarming truths in our world. For some reason, these people fail to see how their work is affecting and changing our world – glaciers are melting, coral reefs are dying, forests shrinking, kids getting fatter and sicker, and the poor remaining poor but rapidly growing in number. Miseducation is what ultimately leads an individual to lead this kind of life – one without reverence for life and its bounties. A miseducated individual only sees the material aspects of this world. And thus, desires for this alone.
Dix believes that when the youth is allowed to follow their passions, they will be better equipped to work for companies that are founded on ethical business principles. The youth will have more concern for their rights and the rights of others. Moreover, they will come to understand that life isn’t about hoarding material possessions, but finding satisfaction in the simplest of things like helping a person in need.
Those words aren’t often uttered by your school’s guidance counselors. Most of them have several ways of linking a kid’s personality and abilities with a specific profession, but these devices never seem to help these kids realize their passion.
When it comes to choosing a school and a major, you can always find great advice from “Shopping for College: How to Get What You Really Want.”
Last month, the book was displayed during the 2015 Frankfurt International Book Fair. It was held on October 14 – 18, 2015 at the Frankfurt Trade Fairgrounds in Frankfurt, Germany.
