I see my nigerian man on the bus (last post) got very popular. If only he knew I was blogging about him, maybe I will receive my own lecture about him having his BSc and Masters.
Speaking of degrees, I have been doing a lot of research into different career paths and the respective degrees that are often
demanded required for the chosen careers. I mean some careers are not so fussy about qualifications like being a WAG (you know the pretty young things that hang on the arms of the muscular young lads who chase that little round thing around on that green rectangular thing) or say being Jade Goody (I mean I find the words hard to qualify what exactly her profession is so bear with me).
Do you know how important it is to find fulfilment in all areas of life? Especially your work-related life? I guess I don't need to ask you intelligent bloggers that question. Maybe I am asking myself that question. I have been doing a lot of research and trust me, I came up with some very interesting results.
Did you know that Giorgio Armani was once trained in Medicine, then he pursued photography before he became the famous house for those amazing 'suits'?
Did you know that at 23, Ozwald Boateng was working in IT which he found mundane (or at least it was to him, sorry IT folks if that's where your buzz is!), around his late 30s he started to make suits and in his 40s he was appointed creative director for the mens wear of Givenchy? P.S He is ghanian so no one should give me the cock and bull story of racism. He doesn't have two heads.
Need I bring up that most famous celebrities worked either in fast food restaurants and stuff before they got their big break...
Gee, imagine if J-Hud (Jennifer Hudson known to others) had said to herself....
'I have a dream. A dream where burger king burgers taste half as good as McDonalds' amazing Big Macs. I have a dream where KFC would increase their prices of barbeque sauces from 10p per pack to 20p so that we can have more customers.Dare I say, I have a dream that maybe just one of these glorious days, I will become a manager in oh so lovely burger king. I have a dream'
Eh. I believe you get my drift. In case you didnt, J-Hud used to work @ Burger King before she became an Oscar Winner. Neither would Burger King have honoured her by giving her a supply of Whoppers 4 Life! (You go girl!!) if she had a remained a burger-flipper.
The whole point of my post is, its never too late to start dreaming and fulfilling your dreams.
Anyway I was thinking along the lines of careers and success (like I always do, I'm always inside my own head ), and I started to think of people's motivation to be successful. Some for fame, some satisfaction, mostly comfort,..so I am thinking why do I want to be successful.....these words are right from the top of my head (not a poem but knowing me it could end up like one ...lol)
I will succeed for a comfortable life
