How often has a student, colleague or friend said, "I can't do it"?
Within the element of our daily work, within the classroom, within the schoolhouse, these words shouldn't exist.
Education should be an environment of "let's figure it out". Not "your wrong".
The fear of failing needs to be extinguished from our hallways and our lockers. Removed from the desks that are filled each day with unlimited potential.
Step through the fear, lean into the uncomfortable, and bask in the glory beyond the veil of dread.
With each fear that we confront, we are prepared for the next greatest adventure.
