Determined to learn

By: Rusty Potter

Zig Ziglar said, “If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.” We should make it our goal to learn more than we did yesterday. One of the greater investment you can make is the investment in your education. No thief, however clever, can rob you of knowledge, and that is why knowledge is one of the best prizes to obtain. BB King said, “The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.”

Be eager and ready to learn new skills this school year, never belittle your ability to learn. It is important to have a thirst and a hunger for knowledge. Your education has the power to make your dreams possible and to elevate you to a better life. There is nothing that is beyond your reach when you focus on your education; there is not a single thing you can’t accomplish. The sky and not your individual ceiling should be the purpose of your striving. Make a commitment this school year to discover your untapped abilities. Expect more from yourself this school year. Remember, no student rises to low expectations.
