Passion is a driver
Have you ever done a really tough job, to the best of your ability, with all the best of intentions, taking all the factors you have into consideration and still- it was not enough? After working so hard, other people have opinions of how you did, many negative. This is often what happens to people who choose to live a life of service to others. This could happen to the politician, the doctor, the nurse, the policeman, the volunteer baseball coach, the teacher, the co worker, the parent, the child, the neighbor, and often to those whose head is above the crowd. So why do it? Why even bother?
The answer is Passion.
We all have a passion that drives us to be and do more then we think possible. Great leaders are the people who can find that passion in themselves and bring it out in other people. When you have that passion your desire to serve is greater than the negative. You believe to the core that you must pursue your passion regardless of what others may say.
In the October Session of Leadership Menomonee Falls we will be focusing on Education. We will have the opportunity to talk to both district and class room leaders. We will discuss some of the successes as well as the challenges they face navigating education today. Everyone you meet has an opinion of the school system. It does not matter what community you live in. The opinions are many. However, during the 5 years I have been facilitator of Leadership Menomonee Falls the one thing that has rang true, in every session on education, is the level of passion of the people committed to our children. It is a great example of people willing to follow their passion and serve others regardless of what others might say.
What are you that passionate about?
