How to be a Good Dinosaur?

Last week I watched the movie “The Good dinosaur”.I found it quiet inspiring.Arlo was the smallest dinosaur and the day he was born he was weak and small.He was always fearful about small things happening in his life.He felt really upset about it.The movie is all about how instead of being small and weak , he learns from life and emerges out to be strong and fearless.Life throws him in several hardships,but he overcomes them with bravery.He learns from his life that-

A)“You have to get through your fear to get the beauty on other side”.We often miss many wonderful things that life offers to us because we are scared to come out of our comfort zone.

B)You should not feel bad about being scared.”If you ain’t scared, you ain’t alive” .Bravery is not in being fearless but facing those fears,just looking them into their face so that they can no more scare you.

C)“You’ve got to earn your mark by doing something bigger than yourself.” .And is it really possible to do something bigger than ourselves?What an achievement do we feel when we do something which we thought we would never be able to do.The day we do something we think is beyond our strength,we have earned a mark because on death bed we have the satisfaction of doing something extraordinary.

D)Change your perspective and you could be good friends.Arlo initially thought him to be responsible for his father’s death but he found a friend who protected him in this whole journey.

E)Your strength doesn’t depend your size.

F)“A single kindness can change everything.”He saved his friend’s life till the end.

Its only when Arlo was left alone ,he could discover his underlying strength and making a mark was not at all easy,he had to face a lot of problems,but most importantly he learned from difficulties and  moved on.In the end he was a different person,and was proud that he finally made a mark.

 

 

4 Things a teacher can learn from Bhagwat Gita

inspirational-teacher-quotes

1.Listen to the students-Lord Krishna very patiently listened to Arjun when he was demotivated.Listening will help you know more about your student and the teacher student relationship also strengthens.While listening don’t judge your student,neither be angry on his works.Just understand that he is on his way of learning and he will commit mistakes.

2.Satiate the hunger of inquisitive minds-A teacher should feel very enthusiastic in answering the inquisitive minds and should not be irritated if the student asks more questions.Lord Krishna very patiently answered all questions that were arising in the mind of Arjuna.

3.Answer with validation and reasoning-A student can’t believe in anything you say.He needs a proper reasoning of Why or Why not?Reasoning should be given on your own experience or based on some logic.Find different creative ways of answering a problem.A student should not be taught to just assume things and answers should not just be imposed on him without proper validation and logic.In Bhagwata Gita, Lord Krishna put his points with full validation and reasoning and convinced Arjuna in every possible way.

4.Build a trust relationship with students-Lord Krishna and Arjuna depicted the best student teacher relationship where Arjuna had complete trust on Lord Krishna.Build a relationship with students so that after getting lessons from you they have a strong belief that  the success is for sure and there is no point of defeat.Because at the end their success and their happiness is something that is going to give you immense satisfaction.

When a parent sends their children to school they are actually sending their dreams to you to come true and fulfilling somebody’s dream is a great job.
