You are an Amazing Group
Be Proud of What You’ve Accomplished to Date!
I have been through your practice exams and I have to tell you…I couldn’t be prouder!
We are imperfect beings, all of us.
We strive for perfection but, ultimately, it’s a Sisyphean task!
Proficiency and Mastery
Once we’ve mastered a task, a subject, or a physical or intellectual feat, we are faced with even greater challenges. And, as we move forward from one task to another, we are constantly pushed to step outside of our comfort zone. Being pushed is out of our comfort zone is never easy. In fact, it can be downright uncomfortable; and yet, it is only through striving for something better, something greater than ourselves, that we end up knowing our true selves.
Through striving, constantly pushing beyond of our comfort zone, we come to a knowledge of Self:
These are all necessary steps we must take as we travel our path through life.
Intellectual, spiritual, and physical growth can be difficult…if not downright painful!
To quote The Beatles George Harrison:
“It don’t come easy!”
Nor should it…at least not to the vast majority of us.
I wonder if those individuals who appear to have it “easy.” or “easier,” are really being honest about just how “easy” they have it!
And, when all is said and done, the triumph is in the doing, the seeking, the exploring, and the striving…in sticking with it, whatever it happens to be, when everything in you screams “QUIT!”
You are a remarkable group of young people and I am proud to be your teacher, tutor, mentor, and friend.
God has blessed you with a myriad of gifts, gifts you have put to good use.
As we move forward and ultimately go our own ways, I want you to know that my door is always open to you and my home is always your home.
It has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with each and every one of you and for that I will be eternally grateful!
The future belongs to you…so seize each and every day. I am grateful to be of service and I wish you every good thing in life!
