Would you go through vigorous training to improve any of your soft skills?
I didn't realize a lot of us have needs. I didn't know a lot of my friends want answers. I had no idea they have big dreams, waiting for a breakthrough too. I know how difficult it is for me to find someone or someplace to learn the lots of things I sincerely desire from.
For instance, I wish I could find a good place to learn Python Programming Language, Machine Language, and transform it into Artificial intelligence. I wish I could find someone and have direct contact with him, to gain everything he has.
Now, I thought I was the only one who is frustrated over finding the right information in all the right places. I didn't know my frustrations were also felt by other people. No wonder the scripture says, "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. This means everything we are facing is happening to other people and if they found ways by which they can get out, we can too.
I had this internship link, a friend sent it to me a few weeks ago. I went through the link and found a lot of courses are listed to be studied in a 6 weeks duration. I was torn between which one to choose.
I asked my friend if I can choose more than one course, he said no. I told him I desired to learn almost all of the listed courses. He frown with an emoji and l laughed.
We had a long list of courses like;
Frontend Development (HTML + CSS + JS + TAILWIND)
Frontend Development (React JS)
Backend Development (PHP)
Backend Development (Laravel)
Mobile Application Development
Database Administration (MySQL + MongoDB)
Website Development (WordPress)
Data Analytics on Excel
Customer Relationship Management
Product Design (UI/UX)
Microsoft Office Suite
Video Animation (Whiteboard Animation)
Video Animation (2D Animation)
Frontend Development (Vue JS)
Do you see why I couldn't choose? Those courses are good soft skills that I am interested in and would love to learn and dig deeper into. I do know we cannot serve two masters at the same time. So I need to choose and do so soon. The fact that I couldn't choose made me leave the link. I saved it hoping to return once I can make up my mind.
I forgot about it. Truly. Until yesterday, a friend with whom we have been learning python together told me he had a training session he wanted us to pursue together. So that both of us can depend on each other whenever we encounter obstacles. I told him to send me the link. He did. Behold, it was the same internship. This time I only had 4 days left to register.
I didn't have trouble choosing anymore. This is because right before yesterday, I had already decided to focus on writing for a year and becoming proficient in it. I had asked another friend to send me material around the English language and Grammar structure, and what have you. I told him I wanted to study and sharpen my writing abilities. He was happy to help since he is good with the English language and Phonetics. He send them for me, and I appreciated him
Now, seeing the way you guys appreciate me and my writing here on Hive, I posted, Eureka, on my WhatsApp status to pinpoint that I have found what I should use my next 365 years for, and my heart accepts it.
So when this person asked me to choose machine language I told him, I am sorry, but, I will be choosing content creation so that I can sharpen my writing skills. He was upset but he knew how much I love writing, and he had to let me go ahead with my choice.
Wait, I wasn't telling this you because I wanted to talk about myself. No.
Once I had registered, I decided to share the link with my friends as well. What shocked me was how much each of them appreciated that I shared the links with them. All of them wanted the different courses in the internship badly as I did.
Most of them were interested in python, web development, animations, etc. They were so grateful that I couldn't stop smiling. I didn't know I had so many friends and that all of them are dying to learn one or two soft skills but had no access to the knowledge. This link put a smile on their faces, and last night, I refused to be on Hive because I was talking to them and guiding them on the sighing-up process.
I slept happily knowing that if one or two of them take the courses to the end, and make great use of the lessons, I have been able to change someone's life.
Most of them encountered difficulty putting in their account details, yes, there was a proposed stipend. I had no idea the first time until I followed the link to the end. We will be opportune to learn and earn afterward. What could be better than this?
So I guided them through till the end. Some were afraid to involve their account details, I encouraged them to go ahead. I had a feeling they had done registrations that involved more than those details, and they weren't afraid. This is a skill they are learning, and it's for their good.
They needed to open an account with a certain bank called, Mintyn Digital Bank. This was because the organizers, Side Hustle, were Affiliating with them. This is where I guess the stipend will be going. I have no idea how we are going to earn the stipends, I'll wait until the end of the course.
I hope that all my friends will take this opportunity seriously as I will mine. I hope that my desire to have my writing skills improved and sharpened will be fulfilled.
I'll leave you the link if you are interested in learning any of the listed courses too. Here it is 👇👇
The deadline for registration is close, I think if you are seeing this today, you have 3 days left, hurry now.
I am confident that my blog will be much better once I am done with my training, and that includes my writing styles and voice. Stay tuned.
