I feel good.

You can't teach anyone who doesn't want to learn. And similarly, you can't learn anything you're not interested in. At the very least, it's going to be hard. That's why 40 minutes after you leave a class, you forget everything you've learned.  

But when you really love something, you go all in. Great teachers know that. My dad knew that. My dad didn't teach a lesson. He taught commitment. He knew if I wasn't committed, I wasn't going to pay attention.

People don't bother to learn something until they find out that they're good at it. So a good teacher shows you what you love. 

A student with commitment is unstoppable. Someone with commitment knows that if there's a will, there's a way. Just because you're not able to fly, doesn't mean you can't. It means that if you care enough, you can fly. And you'll explore new ways that might work.

Someone without commitment will keep trying to the same things over and over excepting different results.

Chickens can flap their wings all they want, they're not going to fly. But somewhere out there, a committed chicken decided to try something new. 

This is for all the teachers (and my dad) who teach us that where there's a will, there's a way. 

What do you love to do? What would you love to do? Don't wait around. Go all in. Just because you can't at the moment, doesn't mean you won't be able to for ever.

Fly higher than you ever thought possible.
