Happy New Year Everyone

Just wanted to wish everyone a very Happy New Year.

This last one has convinced me even more, that change is a good thing and that their is nothing wrong with it, once it’s in the right direction. To all the great people out there, educating kids and providing them with knowledge and inspiring them to be better players and better people, I salute you all! Most of us our volunteers, we do this for the love of the game and because we are good teachers and we enjoying seeing what we do on a training ground transferred to the pitch. Remember we teach more by what we are, then by what we say and sometimes questions are more important then answers.

“Don’t change because a New Year is coming up, but change for your own personal growth no matter what the resolution you make, they start with you.”

Some of my favourite quotes of the year: 

“Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you’ll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others.”

“The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.”

“Nothing is more annoying than a low man raised to a high position”.

“Change is inevitable in a progressive country, Change is constant.”

“If there is anything we wish to change in the child, we should first examine it and see whether it is not something that could better be changed in ourselves.”

“The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress.”

“It’s the most unhappy people who most fear change.”

“If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.”

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”

“Example isn’t another way to teach, it is the only way to teach.”

“Instruction does not prevent waste of time or mistakes; and mistakes themselves are often the best teachers of all.”

“To teach is to learn twice.”

Happy New Year Everyone
