Sex skills are not taught in school but most people are pros and gurus. They do whatever it takes to get the skills and perfect it. The same energy, time, research, money and practice can also be poured into gaining other more valuable skills that will make you indispensable in your career, business and community at large.

Risk taking, hustling, resilience, sales, negotiation, creative thinking, creative writing, self-awareness, networking, communication, personal development, financial intelligence, emotional intelligence, leadership, public speaking and much more are skill many people lack but do nothing about it. Some resort to complaining, blaming the government or their parents…yet no parent or government can take credit for their spectacular mind blowing sex skills.

Same goes for fashion and Make-up, every woman out there, young or old knows how to draw the newest eyebrows on fleek. People know about what’s trendy in fashion and what’s outdated with no one running after them or forcing them to learn these things. Let’s not forget dancing. Some people can watch one video 30 times to master a particular dance move but can’t watch even a 20 minutes tutorial on YouTube that teaches skills like how to build a computer, how to develop and App, how to fix cars, etc.

Just because school is over, doesn’t mean you should discard your brain or put it on shutdown mode. The end of school should be the beginning of your greatest curiosity and that means learning new things. We’re in the wake of the 4th Industrial Revolution and those who don’t update their minds will be left behind. We have the amazing gift known as the internet whereby you can learn pretty much anything you want and whenever you want. From writing to arts, to programming, to coding, t learning the dynamics of artificial intelligence and everything else you can imagine. YouTube especially, has got you covered on almost every “how to do this and that”. YouTube is the second most used search engine in the world after Google.

In case you still don’t get it, what I’m trying to say is that if you really want to do something with your life, you’ll find a way to make it happened. No excuses! You didn’t wait on anyone to give you sex skills, you made an effort, took initiative to get the skills/lessons yourself. So, what’s stopping you from taking initiative with other aspects of your life? What’s stopping you from learning other skills? “Energy flows where attention goes” and opportunity avoids those whose minds are empty. Money grows on skills not trees!
