School Prepares But Doesn't Position Students

SCHOOL PREPARES STUDENTS BUT IT DOES NOT POSITION THEM FOR LIFE SUCCESS.

I have heard the question does school prepares? Yes! and I can beat my chest and say it again.

It may interest you to know that school prepares you but does not position you. Note, the two keywords here_ Preparation and positioning differ. School is preparing you for jobs. That is why most graduates look for a job because their mind has been structured and prepared for that. Preparation is simply getting someone ready for something presently or in near future. But positioning is a step far from preparation. To position is to put someone where they are meant to be to acquire success by taking an extra effort. Let me give you an instance for a clearer view.

👉 Let us say, you have a child who got selected to represent his school in a spelling bee. As the school representative, he needs to bring the trophy home, and this starts by getting himself prepared through training, research, discussion, and covering the quiz curriculum.

Then positioning that child involves teaching him how to shoot his shot without fear of being a loser. This involves training him how to manage his time when answering questions, how to spell words, and what to do when he tends to forget a letter in his spelling so as not to get disqualified. Preparation will make his fears melt off. But positioning will determine whether he gets selected for what he prepared for.

You get it right?

💥 Why we have a higher rate of unemployment is because most graduates focus on their certificates as the only way to get what school prepared them for without knowing how to sell themselves.

Therefore, The school will not position you for what it is preparing you; it is in your hands you stand difference and put an extra step in everything.
