A "Thought 4 the Week" (II) On the Very Essence of Education: Discovering that You Can

The essence of Education is about possibilities.  The evolution of Education is such that we have to constantly keep an open and keen mind..and it begins with a sense of discovery that we indeed can as this "Thought 4 the Week" underscores: 

Discover that you can

It is amazing what you can do if you will simply do it. Instead of wondering whether or not you’re able, take action and discover that you can.
If you follow your vision, people might think you’re crazy. Persist in taking positive action, and show them how truly mistaken they are.
If all you ever do is think about it and wonder about it, you’ll come up with plenty of excuses. Take action, and all the excuses go out the window.
Go ahead and find out how wonderfully capable and effective you are. Go ahead and make your time count for something by making a meaningful difference with it.
Rock solid confidence comes from knowing that you can. Knowing that you can, comes from actually doing it.
Take that action, feel that confidence, and experience the power of your own abilities. Go ahead, make the effort, give it your best, and discover that you can.
— Ralph Marston
