We Are All Teachers

Yesterday was all about "teaching" and building "confidence" and "knowledge".  I have the opportunity of working with people to assist them in becoming "the best of the best".

We are all teachers of something, whether it is teaching good or bad.  Do we ever stop and think about the influence that we have over others?

I love the dictionary!  Webster says to teach - is to cause to help(someone) to learn about a subject by giving lessons; showing how it is done; to provide instructions.

Synonyms are to instruct, to train or to tutor.

So when you think about it, we are all teachers.  We may not have a degree or a certificate, but we were all born with that desire to teach.

A mother/father is probably the #1 teacher from day one of birth.  They begin to teach a child about security and love.  Teaching is shown also by our actions.  How do we treat someone; how do we show happiness or sadness?

Realize your actions could change a person to go the right direction or the wrong direction.

This week take the time to think about what you are teaching others through your words or your actions.

We all need a mentor.  Someone that we could look up to.  Someone that we would feel comfortable in asking them for direction in our lives.

This is your time!  Be careful what you teach!  Someone may be watching!
