I recently read a post meant for students. However, this post gives worthy advice that everybody should hear.
The author is Chase Mielke, a high school teacher, trainer, and instructional coach. He speaks to his students, about why the main event of school is not academic learning. It is about adversity. About learning to overcome problems, to create discipline, to concentrate when other things are going on, to ask for help, to take charge of your own doubts, to delay temptations, to invest in your own intelligence.
He says, “What you need to see is that every time you take the easy way out, you are building a habit of quitting. And it will destroy your future and it will annihilate your happiness if you let it. Our society cares nothing for quitters. Life will let you die alone, depressed, and poor if you can’t man or woman up enough to deal with hardship. You are either the muscle or the dirt. You either take resistance and grow stronger or blow in the wind and erode.”
The words in this post are intense and maybe even harsh, but they are worth listening to. Not just for students but for everybody.
