    “Your success in life has more to do with your character than your degrees.”

    Great post Jeremy. I can testify that the above is the case with me, without tooting my own horn. haha.

    I don’t have a degree or even the HSC for that matter and I was offered a great job without having applied for it. It’s been almost 7 years since I got it and whenever anyone tells me you “need a degree to get this specific job”, well…

    I can say I have a God who can do anything. ;-)

    All I did was help a few guys with a grubby task that was not my responsibility. Most would play the “it’s not my job card” in this instance, but I was very bored and thought I’d pass the time. Little did I know I’d score a job offer from the situation. haha.

    When we seek to serve others by our actions, I think it falls under the ‘Salt and Light’ banner. Given we’re living in a disgustingly selfish world, it makes ALL the difference.

      Thanks Elizabeth. Your experience mirrors mine. I have a degree, but it was not what set me up for life.

      BTW. I never even did the HSC, so to all my friends in year 12, study hard but don’t stress. It really is just another test.
