Many individuals like being masters in all fields, especially in today’s world where the levels of unemployment are very high. People have been forced to gain skills in different field rather than concentrating in one field. When one specializes in a certain field he/she becomes a master in this field. For example, when one focuses his/her efforts in marketing field, he/she becomes an expert in the field. Being a master at a given area increases one’s efficiency and effectiveness in the task where he/she is performing. Efficiency improves organization’s performance.

Teach them to Fish
There are many beggars in our streets who beg each and every day. Many a time we give them one day meal. There is need to do it rather in order to restore hope in the lives of the million beggars across the globe. We need to go a step further and equip these people with skills of fishing rather than giving them fish. The best form of assistance that we can give them is paying for their education costs, at least in order to provide them with opportunities of competing with others. When one has education, he/she can manage to take advantage of various available opportunities such as employment opportunities. This new form of assistance will go along with fighting poverty levels in the world. Therefore, it is important for us to embrace the culture of teaching people how to fish rather, than to give them fish

Car Insurance Cover
Taking a cover for your vehicle is a legal requirement in my country. One has to take an insurance cover for his/her vehicle.

Therefore, it is important for car owners to take up insurance covers for their cars. When taking up a cover there are requirements that one must meet in order to get insurance cover. First, one should faithfully give the material facts about the car he/she want to insure. Secondly, one should ensure that his/her car is licensed by the relevant authority.

Changing the World
I was born in the U.S.A, one of the most powerful states in the world both economically and militarily. There is demand for world economic powers to realize the need of making their contributions in the fight against poverty, ignorance and diseases in various parts of the world. Africa, Asia and Latin America are the worst hit continents with poverty, ignorance and diseases. The U.S.A has realized this noble task and has made tremendous contributions in the world. They have distributed relief foods in hunger stricken areas in the world. They have also funded various development projects in third world countries such as water irrigation projects. My country has also helped in the fight against terrorism, thereby contributing in bringing peace and stability in the world. US government has invested heavily in the field of medicine, especially in the area of drug research, thus providing hope for the millions of people in the world.
