Life is a Lesson

Your the instructor, the student, and the dean. Take a note of what grade your in at this moment.

As the student did you get moved up, held back or are you right where you should be? Do you ask for help? Once you understand the topic do you keep the information to yourself or do you lend a helping hand to the other life students that made be struggling? Are you teachable?

As the teacher are you effectively using all the tools at your disposal to educate? Are you stuck with those tools or do you create and invent new tools and techniques to teach the lesson? Do you settle in to the role of teacher or do you believe that you have to step back and learn from other? Are you teachable?

As the dean do you feel your able to speak to both the student and the teacher effectively? When a problem is bought your way do you act immediately? Or do you consider multiple solutions until the best one is found? Are you fair? Are you mean? Are you teachable?

There is one question that is present in all three roles. Are you teachable? I feel that no matter what role you are playing Life is a lesson and you MUST remain teachable. No mater what second of the day it is there is something that you can be learning. even during your sleep you dream, sometimes of things of which you have little to no knowledge. It was during a dream that I learned that I find beauty in bon fires at the beach. It was one of the most poetic dreams I’ve ever had. I was at one with all the elements. Sand was the earth, ocean was the water, the breezy wind licked the flames of the fire and I just sat there watching spirit dance. It was positively beautiful. I woke up with a sense of peace and serenity. the same peace and serinity that I get when ever I take a spur the moment trip to purchase fire wood and head west to watch the sunset as the heat from the fire warms my soul.

I’m extremely teachable.

I’ve looked up some catchy quotes on this topic that I would love to share with my readers.

“What I believe is that all clear-minded people should remain two things throughout their lifetimes: Curious and teachable.”
― Roger Ebert

“Be willing to be a beginner every single morning.”
― Meister Eckhart

To hold the same views at forty as we held at twenty is to have been stupefied for a score of years, and take rank, not as a prophet, but as an non-teachable brat, well birched and none the wiser

Robert Louis Stevenson
