Transformation and Motivation

This last week I attended the Solano County Work Ready Certification and had the honor of hearing guest speaker William Wesley. Mr. Wesley began his speech by saying he is not a motivational speaker but a transformational speaker. He emphasized that he doesn't want to speak to crowds to merely pump them up and get them excited, but he wants to leave them with takeaways that if put into action will transform their lives.

Merriam Webster Dictionary defines motivation as, "The act or process of giving someone a reason for doing something: the act or process of motivating someone." Merriam Webster Dictionary defines transformation as, "A complete or major change in someone's or something's appearance, form, etc."

Two quotes of Mr. Wesley's that I found the most inspiring were:

"Think It, Believe It, Plan It, Achieve It."


"Nothing can stop a human being who refuses to lose." 

As educators we help transform lives. We also motivate our students, but the real power comes when transformation occurs. Never forget the impact you make each and every day on your students. Every student matters and every student has greatness inside him/her. As educators it is our duty to help foster the greatness inside every student.
