Don’t focus on failure


MOST people feel down, degraded, humiliated or even neglected by their families when they drop out of school.
If you are reading this and you are in this situation, I am telling you that you are not a failure.
Yes, you did fail in your education, however, you didn’t fail in life.
Life has a lot of opportunities.
It is up to you to decide the path you want to take to be successful.
Papua New Guinea is a young country and has a long way to go, so the possibilities of making it life are countless.
The country needs more development and this is where most of you come in.
We still need to have a railway system.
There is a need to develop more in terms of technology.
The Wright brothers never completed school, however, they built a sophisticated machine, the aeroplane .
Henry Ford was not well-educated, however, he went on to build a car.
Bill Gates flunked university, but he built Microsoft.
These famous people discovered opportunities and made use of them.
If the education system pushes you out, then upgrade your marks and go back to school if you want to.
Otherwise, use your talents and skills to think outside of the box and create something new that will benefit you and your country. Don’t give up.
Be a dreamer and live your dream.
