The Corner and Good Job Opportunities
Looking Out for Yourself It’s sad but true that “If you don’t look out for yourself, no one else will. ” For example, some people have a false idea about the power of a college degree, they think that once they possesses the degree, the world will be waiting on their doorstep. In fact, nobody is likely to be on their doorstep unless, through advance planning, they has prepared themselves for a career. The kind in which good job opportunities exist. Even after a person has landed a job, owever, a healthy amount of self-interest is needed. People who hide in corners or with hesitation to let others know about their skills doesn’t get promotions or raises. Its important to take credit for a job well-done, whether it involves writing a report, organized the office filing system, or calming down an angry customer. Also, people should feel free to ask the boss for a raise. If they work hard and really deserve it. Those who look out for themselves get the ewards, people who depend on others to help them along get left behind. Why I Didn’t Go to Church I almost never attended church in my boyhood years. There was an unwritten code that the guys on the corner was not to be seen in churches’. Although there was many days when I wanted to attend a church, I felt I had no choice but to stay away. If the guys had heard I had gone to church, they would have said things like, “hey, angel, when are you going to fly? With y group of friends, its amazing that I developed any religious feeling at all. Another reason for not going to church was my father. When he was around the house he told my mother, “Mike’s not going to church. No boy of mine is a sissy. ” My mother and sister went to church, I sat with my father and read the Sunday paper or watching television. I did not start going to church until years later. bnWhen I no longer hung around with the guys on the corner or let my father have power over me.
