In learning, nothing is more profitable than to associate with others who have learned is a
passage from Hsun Tzu in ENCOURAGIN LEARNING (1). I believe power comes from the willingness to
learn and gain ways to understand others points of view with my point of view. My meaning of power is
people often wonder even the righteous. Also with power brings responsibility and education is power.
As a student I have had to learn ways to train my brain to become powerful and to stay
powerful by not falling into boredom. Math was not one of my favorite subjects for quite some time. I
had to gain encouraged learning by finding ways to make math profitable while in school. When I looked
to the bright sun above the 800 meter track, I had an epiphany, “how could I not love math when I run
with math everyday.” This made me powerful because I was able to execute my speed timing and
distance to a higher plateau so when I was in math class I was able to image myself running distances to
better understand my equations. This was my phenomenon that had my cause (Tzu 2) and it was my
daily mood that made the weather for this powerful experience like Haim Ginnot (1).
With Power brings: rewards, legitimacy, a referent and expertise according to Haim G. Ginott
(Ginnot 2). This settles to the same meaning of people often wonder even the righteous. At every level
of education a person must allow their brain to think and create solutions. As a collegiate student I want
to be able to give understandable instructions to my classmates and others. I also want to be able to
create a positive discussion with my professor. This type of learning allows a person to gain satisfaction
because a person will be able to not only grasp information but to also be able to create a learning
environment and that is powerful.
There is a responsibility that comes with power. This responsibility is about sharing information
and being able to agree to disagree (Ginott 5). In my opinion one of the largest difficulties in a classroom
is accepting another person opinion and point of view. For example, is the glass half empty or is the
glass full. The responsible approach would be to discuss the how the glass ended up that way. Open
ended questions create conversation and stimulate the mind to think. Sometimes with education, the
only wrong answer is the silent one.
The greatest profits with education are simple to find if you explore your thought and the
thoughts around you. The power of education allows for mistakes, debates and triumphant moments
within the same situation, or classroom for this matter. Everybody can learn from somebody so nobody
needs nobody to gain power from education.
