I just realized something…Everyone in this world is a teacher! Not literally everyone is teaching in a school or a university, but everyone is still a teacher. Now how can everyone be a teacher? Don’t we need other people also in this world? Yes, there are a lot of occupations in this planet but the one I’m talking about is not an occupation. Recently I was reading a blog on how to do something that matters, and I read these lines,
“The simple process goes something like this:
- Know yourself. Wake up to your talents, your strengths, the things you love and hate.
- Use it to help others in a meaningful way.
- Offer a fair price in exchange for your help (or work with a person or company already having the impact you want to have).”
If you look at these lines closely and carefully, you’ll understand what I mean. Its saying to know your talents, help others, and earn some money! Think for a while, that’s what teacher do. They are good at their own subjects. They help their students. And they earn some good money too! And not just teachers, every occupation in this world do the same thing. They help people and earn money.
So doesn’t that make this world a place full of teachers where everyone is helping each other, even if it is to earn money? Lawyers, doctors, engineers, burger guys, cleaners, and everyone you can think of is teaching and helping everyone around them. Now the fact that they are teaching everyone around them doesn’t sound so logical, right? How are they teaching?
Teaching is what occurs when you help someone. When you help someone, you teach that person how to do that job. Even if you don’t do that, like some would say that if a doctor performs a surgery, he is not teaching his patient how to do a surgery, and that’s right also! But he’s teaching far more important things than just doing a surgery. He’s teaching him that there are people in this world willing to help him. Your each and every action is teaching someone something. This is a really, really important thing than anything else. Because that teaching doesn’t stop at him learning it, it continues on and on to other people as well. It’s a kind of chain reaction, but this time, it’s not a harmful one!
Everyone is a teacher in his/her own way….So what are you teaching to this world? 😀
