Every time we hear a story we haven’t heard before, as we see it in our mind’s eye, we change forever, who we are. New stories and
their , leave ‘footprints’ in the landscape of our neurology. This is why ‘story-telling’ is such an important part of the teaching process. Ultimately, teaching is an effort to permanently change our neurology; to permanently change who we are. Each and
every day we are changed in innumerable ways; this is simply fact. So we might as well try to direct and orchestrate some of those changes in ways that are beneficial to us. We are the sum of our thoughts; those thoughts can be generated rom within or be stimulated from without. We have control over both. In exercising that control, we can direct some of those footprints that leave their mark through the ever-changing landscape of our mind.
My advice? Read! Then read some more. Reading is a habit. A good one, a life changing one. Read just 12 inspiring and thoughtprovoking
books a year and break away from the pack. Reading expands your mind and redefines who you are. The footprints that remain in the landscapes of our mind after reading a good book, will be there forever, and can have a positive and lasting impact on how we live and
act in the world. Get a book – get to some reading. Start today!
