“Change has considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.” – King Whitney Jr.
I found this years ago from another teacher’s (Bobbie’s) email signature. It offers me a great reflective opportunity — checking where am I on the change-reaction spectrum.
A student, who wanted to go by Anonymous, we’ll call him Tinsley, offered this addendum:
“To the curious it is constant because it leads to growth.” – Anonymous (aka Tinsley)
Thank you Bobbie, Tinsley and King Whitney.
