Hello Friends. Today’s Teacher Pep Talk is inspired by the Dalai Lama*.
Here are 16 Life Sayings that will inspire you in the classroom and beyond:
- Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
- When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
- Follow the three R’s: Respect for self, Respect for others and Responsibility for all of your actions.
- Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
- Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
- Don’t let a little dispute injure a great relationship.
- Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
- When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
- Spend some time alone everyday.
- Open arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
- Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
- Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.
- A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
- Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.
- Be gentle with the earth.
- Approach love and cooking reckless abandon.
There’s a lot to process here. Today I am going to focus on #4. It reminds me of an older country song by Garth Brooks…the chorus says something to the effect of “Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers”.
On days when things just don’t seem to make sense…pause and consider, maybe things are unfolding just as they should.
Have a great day.
