Inspiring works should be part of education system

Education, in general, is hard slogging, with some subjects more boring than others.

A lot of this could be spruced up if more inspirational and motivational thinking patterns and attitudes were adopted within the entire system.

Inspirational and motivational reading, quotes, life stories and autobiographies of accomplished people should be entwined as "pep-ups" in all courses.

Spicing one's life with such thought not only makes learning more exciting and ambition-orientated for the slower ones, but also more stimulating for the "brain-boxes" and others involved.

By familiarising themselves with the power of positive thinking, students are taking the right path in achieving success, happiness and good health. It also motivates, creates ambition, shapes skills and improves performance.

You never forget great inspirational writers like Dale Carnegie (How To Win friends And Influence People and How To Stop Worrying And Start Living), Norman Vincent Peale (You Can If You Think You Can) and Edmund Shaftsbury (Instantaneous Personal Magnetism). Their works are as relevant today as when first published.

"Happiness doesn't depend on any external conditions. It is governed by our mental attitude," according to Dale Carnegie.

Or, as Winston Churchill said: "While alive, we are still masters of our fate. We are still captains of our souls."
