“The only time you fail is when you fall down and stay down.”
― Stephen Richards,
Once you tell yourself that you are a failure, your mind keeps that declaration and you cannot do anything. You will give up easily even on the easy things that you will be doing.
Let me take you back …
I got a higher certificate for my grade 12 but I didn’t give up, I took the initiative to get back up again by writing the exam again at the end of the year. At the end of the year I did well enough to get admission at the University of South Africa. I am currently doing my second year in the Bachelor’s of Education Degree and I teach English, grade 10. I made sure that I excel in my academics and what I do in my class as well. I made up my mind that I want to be the best teacher in the universe and since then I’ve been getting so many opportunities and making the most out of them. I’m able to stand in the crowds and call myself a “Global-Minded Educator” because that’s what I am. I take what I learn globally and implement it in my class. I invest every little that I have in the hearts and minds of the children.
