Life offers a certain hope that should be realised, yet for many it never is, and for still many more it is blighted by mistakes.
From childhood the race is on, set in motion. The kids who have more mental edge in the academics, they are pushed ahead, those that cannot get their heads around those boring academic nesescary things, they make mistakes. Sadly those mistakes are noted in stone. Recorded in reports that carry through into adolescence. Without the academic clout, your a failure it is imprinted.
It is then that mistakes become excuses, the so called failure at college becomes an abuser of excuses. 'I cannot do this', 'I cannot , I cannot, I cannot!'
It is so untrue and so wrong that all educational systems create failures, excuses, when it was some trivial academic mistakes.
Sir Winston Churchill has to be for me one man I would have loved to have spent time with, a man I have great respect for.
He was a failure at school, his mistakes were reported, 'He will never do well.' That is what they said of him, fools that they were and still are in education.
He was Dyslexic, but that man never said any excuses, he always thought the opposite, spacial awareness,
Small wonder that when all the academics twits were faced with carrying a country into to war, they hid like frightened rabitts, and it was Winston that took the UK into a war against tyranical Hitler.
The man was often deeply depressed, the war years took there toll on the decisions he had to make, knowing he was sending men to fight, who at times were unlikely to return. But he never made excuses, he never said I cannot, he never put himself down as his school reports had.
LET NO MAN PUT YOU DOWN IN YOUR YOUTH, MISTAKES ARE MADE BY HONEST PEOPLE, YOU LEARN BY THEM AND YOU RISE ABOVE THEM, YOU NEVER USE THEM AS EXCUSES.
