Educate and Train Yourself, Then Teach

Throughout our schooling and education we learn and continue to learn an unlimited amount of information. It is often always taught in a higher level of difficulty than what we will use in daily life and in our careers. This is necessary for us to understand the fundamental history and ideas around each subject area. However, in everyday life and in our occupations, we only need to explain it in a simple manner so any average person can understand. Therefore, we need to be able to understand our schooling and education extremely well in order to explain in a natural manner. For example, in a healthcare setting everybody uses different terms to describe how and what they feel. Dull, pins and needles, ache, crushing, pressure, tight etc are all words that we unknowingly and inadvertently ask people to describe how and what they feel. If you think about it, by doing this we actually implant these words into their minds and prompt them to use these words to tell us how they feel even though it may be totally inaccurate. Therefore, we should ask them to describe how they feel before throwing out these words in order to receive a more accurate idea of their problems.

As Albert Einstein implies, educate and train yourself to understand something and everything before you try to teach it to others; because if you don’t, it will just be a chain of misunderstanding.

SO MAKE THE EFFORT TO INDULGE YOURSELF INTO UNDERSTANDING YOUR FIELD AND PASSION SO YOU CAN FEEL CONFIDENT IN TEACHING OTHERS.
