The Educator

Do you believe in the power of words? Do you think that words have a real effect on people’s attitudes, behaviours and actions?When I was in my final year at high school I had to study Biology. I hated it. I never liked this branch of Sciences and was fascinated with Mathematics. The curriculum of this terminal year was awful and I spent months neglecting the subject, putting all my effort to get the full mark in Maths. On my Biology mock exam I got a four out of sixty. I wasn’t surprised, I knew I hadn’t put any effort. Declaring our grades, the teacher, whom I didn’t like and who didn’t like me neither, made me stand up and told me: “I don’t know what’s your problem with Biology, I asked the rest of your teachers and they all said you’re doing well.” I explained proudly that “I HATE Biology.” 

After more than two decades I still remember this educator who took from her time to investigate my problem and to help me despite my careless attitude in her classes. I wish to find her contact and to express to her my deep gratitude. Hearing my words, she acted in a wise, tolerant and caring way, advising me to put some effort in the two remaining months till my finals to get rid of the subject I HATED for a life time instead of repeating the year just to pass this subject. 

I passed my Biology exam with a thirty two out of forty, a miracle. However, what this coach has taught me was a far beyond Biology and grades.

I learned that words are powerful, and that when we speak from our hearts and demonstrate genuine care our chances to reach others are higher. I learned to acknowledge people’s feelings and to use my words only to help them see things from a different perspective. 

Our words can let the impossible possible. It’s a guaranteed formula.

  1. Totally agree my dear, I am happy that my words inspired others, many persons became soo motivated, many succeeded due to a phone call or a side talk in the street. I feel sooo happy when I make a difference in others life using only words & few mins of my time ❤️❤️❤️
