I was looking at the Newspaper today and glanced through the University pull outs.
We have about five National Universities, only two of which I would consider.
They were advertising for this Falls admissions, and because I’m an older person, they won’t ask for education credentials.
They will ask for money.
The fees run about KShs. 200,000/= per year, approx $3000.
That’s all. For a degree. Wow.
If there’s one thing I’d love to go back and learn, it’s how to take criticism.
My whole live depends on how I approach opportunity.
I approach warily, like a lion ready to fight – or like a hyena, un-trusting that the thing is dead enough to eat.
I am defensive, and stressed out. I want to succeed, but often it’s more about succeeding in having people respect me, than getting the task accomplished. Power, money and adoration.
I am fearful.
To stand before criticism and understand – really understand – that it helps me get better, and doesn’t mean I’m inadequate, would give me the freedom to try. To try with all my might, and to do so in full light.
As it is, all my successes are simple ones…personal ones. I’ve reigned in my drinking. I don’t steal. I haven’t killed. I forgive as best I can. I am generous.
I’d like to be successful in what I do…successful not just dependable.
I’d love to, just once, believe that I could be the one to get the top prize.
Then, I’d like to learn humility.
