How much do you think you will make without a college degree? How far do you think you'll get in life without a high school diploma? Nelson Mandella once said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Their are many people who want to be very successful in life and make a great impact, but you have to put in the work. To do this, you have to have an education. An education is considered an investment, and personally, I believe it is the best investment we can make. Having an education can expand and open your mind. It will open all types of doors for you. It also allows individuals to expand upon their natural skill and talents and turn them into something greater. When a solid education is combined with experience, individuals can truly show their potential.
