A new year. A new start. A new blessing. A new opportunity to make all of your dreams come true. The first way to make a dream come true, is to have one. The second, is to believe that you can. The third is….to work really, really hard. Nothing worth having, ever came easily.
When I taught in one classroom (and not thousands) I had a sign that hung on the side of my desk. It read “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” I wanted my first graders to know that they could do anything that they put their mind to. As adults we tend to lose this sense of infinite possibility, the sense that we can do whatever we put our mind to and make our own dreams come true.
I can’t wait for the new adventures 2017 brings with it: the audiences I will speak to, new states that I will visit, the launch of our brand new Classes 4 Classes website, expansion to all 50 states…amongst many other goals and dreams. The only way to make your vision a reality is to believe that you can.
For 2017 I have the same goal for myself, as I ALWAYS had for my 1st graders, and you should too. Dream it. Think it. Work it. Achieve it. 2017 is your year! What dream can you make come true?
