Most of us want to be successful and champions in life. However, when we were kids, we had no idea where to take our lives and what to make out of it.
Who taught you to become a champion? Who inspired you to become somebody? Who filled you with confidence and made you aware of your hidden potential?
Most of us had a teacher in our life, who helped us shape our life and make us who we are today. Our teachers guided us through dark lanes of ignorance and cleared our mists of confusion.
They gave their best to make us the best – and these teachers were our champions.
My teacher was my champion, and I too decided to become a champion like him. So, I became a teacher.
Not boasting of myself, but teachers are great. They remain rooted while the students rise and fly over all places and make a name for themselves.
But a teacher is often forgotten. We win accolades and awards, but forget to reward the one who made it all possible for us to reach great heights.
So, today I want to pay my gratitude and thank all teachers who taught me, and those who teach all around the world and make a difference in the lives of children.

Celebrating Teacher’s Day
It’s Teacher’s Day in India on Sept 5th, a day when the teacher or guru is appreciated, felicitated, and remembered.
Teacher’s day is celebrated all around the world on different dates, but its purpose remains the same – To remember and reward the true champions.
Today, I’ve a video for you, and I’ve kept this post intentionally short so that you can just spend time to enjoy this inspirational video.
Believe it or not, it took me a long time to hunt for a good video, and after hours of searching, I landed up on one of the best videos of a teacher, which I thought you’d like.
The lady in the video, Rita, was a real educator, who knew teaching is more than books and lessons, classrooms or exams.
Teaching is connecting to the person, understanding his or her needs, and then finding a suiting solution that will help the child be successful.
Okay, do you know that you too are a teacher? Of course, everybody is a teacher.
We play the role of a teacher as a parent and even as a blogger. I’m lucky that I’m both. 🙂
In this TED video, Rita talks about the importance of human connections or relationships in teaching – relationships help students take in easily what you are teaching and learn better.
It’s no secret that relationships are vital to all professions and in all aspects of life, including blogging.
But teachers create the relationships to make you confident and educated. Like parents, they do a thankless job and become anonymous champions.
Watch this video and we’ll talk later.

Did you find it inspiring? What do you think of teachers after watching the video? They have a tough job at their hands, don’t they?
From my personal experience, I can confidently say that there are many devoted and committed teachers all around the world, who only think about how they can help the children.
A teacher never gives up!
They spend their life making the lives of many. They are the unsung heroes of our life, who remain content with you being happy, that’s their greatest reward.
My teachers are my champions.
I salute all teachers and the spirit of teaching. I know all my fellow bloggers do the same, and I hope you all learned something from this post and the video.
“Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.” ~ Aristotle
