Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
[Attributed to Albert Einstein]
Every individual has their own abilities and talents. One student's 'full potential' is not going to be the same as other's. Comparing oneself to someone else's knowledge or skills is pointless because it means overlooking what makes you, YOU. We all need to stop being a fish trying to climb a tree and discover our very own genius.
What we teach children today will influence not only their future, but this world’s future. Let's raise children who are inspired, encouraged, and have a positive mindset about their own genius.
