Making a way in the world "jungle"
Growing up as a child I was told that if I read and study hard then I could become someone successful in the future.  Without much argument I went to school, even during the days that I felt like sleeping home my mom would scold me....well it was not an option for me to stay home except I was ill of course. 


Then most times when I saw people who are successful in their various fields of work, I felt motivated to study hard to make my parents proud. I graduated high school, moved to college there I began to get different interesting revelations...."it is not about the certificate of what you studied".


Well it may seem strange to you reading as I do not know if it is the same everywhere but in this world where am from..... **no connection, no job**. A world where if you do not know the managing director of the company or the head of HR then you are not getting hired irrespective of if you have a first class or a second class.

 We are now in a world where a graduate have to worry about getting a job after fulfilling all the requirements of going through school. A world where colleagues who do not even know how to write a Cv or do not have as much qualifications as you do get the upper hand in everything because **"his/her father knows someone in a high position while your parents do not**".



---
***Then why do we keep disturbing ourselves??***

---

# Who is to blame?

<br>

**Do I blame my parents for not having friends or connections in high places?**


**Do I blame the government for doing nothing to better the country they swore to make a better place?**


**Or do I blame myself for trying to aim high?**






This world has become a jungle where it is more like **"the survival of the fittest**", if you are not strong enough to fight for your place in this world then you would most likely get trampled upon. It is now a thing of **Me, my family and I,** which keeps making things worse although I would not blame anyone on this path because that is the reality we live in now. 



Well, each day opens up a new opportunity, each day comes with it's own battle. We are still going to keep fighting for our dreams and make a better place for our families. You know why... **when there is life, there is hope**.

<br>

As for me... I won't back down and there are two options for me,  which is..... **it's either I make it big or I make it loud..... either way I am going to build my own place in this world "jungle"**.

`no connection, no job`

This rule applies to the whole world on so many levels. In some places, if you don't have the right connection, you won't even have access to medical care ... human greed has no limits.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us,

It is unfortunately more true than it should be, "It's now **what** you know, it's **who** you know." Connections certainly helped me into my last two positions as well.

I'm sure something is going to work out for you soon! You're very smart, determined, and have a great attitude; it'll work out.

Thanks for sharing on #pypt!

This is a great post, representing my #thoughtfuldailypost movement... I remember when I was going to college online many years ago. I was having a conversation one night, with another student that was quite younger than I was. They were explaining that the respective career path I was on, would not be best. You see... they were *already*  doing what I was going to school for!! You can imagine I felt rather... well, it was very intimidating, to say the least. All we can do is be "us" and focus on what we want to achieve... thank you for joining in on my #tdp movement...

Thank you very much for your post.  I went through similar struggles in my life.  Being pushed to move forward with no clear goal in sight was the definition of my younger educational years.  I had to learn the value of education during my time in the military.

And you're also correct about that job.  You almost need that connection to get in the door.  

Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
