“So one of the students came with her kid, because she didn’t have a babysitter. the kid starts to cry in the middle of the class, so his mom, all embarrassed gets up to leave, and the professor took the kid from her, calmed him and continued teaching.”
According to Entertainment Wise, the photo was reportedly taken in a small school in Jerusalem. This professor definitely wins a teacher of the year award!
“You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.” –Zig Zigler
When we play at being less than who we are… who we really know we can be…. and stop short of giving our all, doing are best and yes, even going that “exrta mile”…we “dis” our ability. We dis-honor it, our name, our reputation, our integrity… we cripple our character and even our workplace culture.
There are all kinds of things that can knock us down… physically, emotionally and even spiritually. But there are also all kinds of things that can help us to get back up. Friends, books, tapes, service, forgiveness, goals, determination and a willingness to recommit ourselves to being and becoming our very best. (YES IT WILL BE HARD) But not nearly as hard as just sitting there feeling sorry for ourselves and dissing the abilities that we have been given…by focusing on what we feel isn’t right, isn’t working properly or doesn’t seem to be there at all.
Zig is right… “You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.” so Don’t DIS it.
