"I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker."
What is your place in your community? We all have important roles. Whether we be the class clown or the one who asks questions in a serious "confrontative" approach. All roles offer a gift.
That class mate or co-worker who you have a challenge appreciating... look closely at their behavior. Be a detective. Find the offering. Find the gift. Find the benefit of being challenged by them. They may just be the best teacher you could ever ask for.
