Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader

January 15, 2024

Margaret Fuller once said: ‘If you are a leader, if you want to be one, you have to read. You cannot grow in your leadership without learning from others and that requires reading’.

Education is essential to everyone. It is education that helps people earn respect and recognition. It is indispensable part of life both personally and socially, benefitting the society and his /her well being as well. Providing Quality education produces globally competitive individuals who can cope up with the innovations of the world. Every child should be given equal opportunities to learn and study, because the development of a Country depends vastly on the standard of education. Education is merely a step to make us grow in all aspects of life, but useless without the proper guidance provided by the teachers and the given teaching aids used today.

Internet has made reading more and more a part of people’s daily lives. To effectively utilize the web judge the authenticity and value of what is found there, both reading and critical thinking skills are of prime importance. The more the children read, the better they become at reading. It’s as simple as that. The more enjoyable things they read are, the more they’ll stick with them and develop the reading skills that they’ll need for full access to information in their adult lives. Reading should be seen as a pleasurable activity-as a source of entertaining tales and useful and interesting factual information.

It is said that, Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. It is the key to unlock the world and a powerful weapon which we can use to change the world. The great aim of education is not knowledge but action. Teachers are the ones who opens the door for us, but we must enter by ourselves. It is not a preparation for life, it is life itself. It is lifelong [process from birth to death.

Never stop learning, because life never stops teaching. The roots of education may be bitter but the fruit is sweet. There is one saying that “you can’t make omelette without breaking eggs.” If you want to achieve something, or do something great you often have to make difficult sacrifices. No one can take away from you the learning that you have is simply the soul of the society as it passes from one generation to another. Education is something that breeds confidence hope and hope breeds peace.

So, if you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you determined to learn, no one can stop you. Learn continually-there’s always ‘one more thing’ to learn.
