A little bit about me

It has been said that we should enjoy the journey not the destination. I believe that to be true. I have always tried to better myself through education. Whether its learning to play guitar, studying a martial art, or attending training for the latest topic I am interested in. I will never truly arrive at a point where I am completely satisfied. I will always want to learn more and achieve more. It can be a double-edged sword because I can never truly set back and relax and enjoy my accomplishments. That is because, for me, the joy is in the struggle. The struggle to learn. The struggle to better myself. Without self-improvement I am listless and discontent.

This does not mean that I am an unhappy person. Quite the opposite. However, what I have learned about myself is that the thing I enjoy most, outside of spending time with my family, is learning. The education that I have received in my life is the key to changing the environment around me. Education has changed my viewpoint, my attitude, and improved my financial circumstances. Sure, I have had help in the past and I am grateful for it. But, the biggest transformations in my life have occurred when I have had a good teacher and I was open to the lessons. I can only hope that one day I can help another as others have helped me.
