“Can you do your own homework?” I ask my student. “Come on mister… you know I do not like homework.” Over time I have heard something like this a lot of times. In fact, I think now I’m running into this reaction more than I did just a short decade ago. I need to admit that this lack of effort is worrying me a bit. But… all isn’t lost… there’s still hope… We can still win.
Going the extra mile, or doing our own assignments, automatically puts us, hard workers, ahead of most people because we’ve already developed the habit of doing more, or doing extra. We’re more responsible. Turning the word accountable around only means that we are able to respond. And isn’t that what we really want in this life; to have the ability to respond?
You see, where most people stop, is usually the same point where accountable winners are only getting warmed up and ready to start for real. So, if you are one those winners that keep going… CONGRATULATIONS! Just keep doing what you are already doing… and if you are a person who’s frustrated because you haven’t seen positive results yet, don’t worry. Rome wasn’t built in one day, and neither will your colossal dream life be built in 1 day. However, over time it’ll be built as long as you continue your habit of doing extra. And that Florida Marijuana all begins with doing your own homework.
Now teens, go learn, lead, and lay the way to a better world for all of us. Remember it pays always to do your own homework. And once more, thanks in advance for all that do, and all that you will do…
