One transformative learning experience I've gained from Thursday's session is how unimportant & such a waste of time excuses are. Times before the session, I think I've always formed excuses for myself, others, etc. During the session, when I heard some of the fellows making excuses I was honestly disgusted. It made me think “is this how I sound when I make excuses?” Some of the excuses were “oh,public school children/teens don’t have the best learning material, so they can’t do this and that”, and “oh, some people can’t get as involved because their parents work and they have certain duties”, and the list goes on. I couldn’t stand hearing all of those excusing, it was honestly very irritating. So, I spoke up and said, “Well honestly to me everything is life is done according to how much you want it.” And, indeed I meant this. I feel like if you want to have an outstanding occupation you will by all means do what you have to do to get there.
Thursday’s session allowed putting brakes on all of the crazy, nonscense excuses I make on daily, weekly, and monthly bases. I think that, this session bought me closer to accomplishing my PDP in a way. Reason being because my PDP is all about me giving those who feel like they don’t have a voice and can’t speak up about government issues a voice. I feel like first in foremost in order to accomplish my PDP at all, I must act as a leader to those in which I want to give a voice to, I think that by stopping all these unnecessary excuses, I become a leader in a way; I stand out amongst those who are always shaping excuses.
