It's worth it for the 1% ....

 

to be told 'the secret'?!

 

you mean find something they like doing then work really hard at doing it?

 

the 1% don't need to be told that (or sold 'it' by some guru <deleted>) they do it already

I spent 25 years in education in Thailand.   That's long enough to have seen many of my students grow up and now have families of their own.   I am friends with quite a few on FaceBook.    What is truly amazing to me is that so many of them have turned out to be successful, happy and well adjusted adults.  

 

Some of those students were frustrating and lazy, but somewhere along the way, they straightened out.   They had learned what they needed to know.

I think it great if at least some students have benefited from your teaching.

 

I remember once asking my students for occupations that required at least some English. Along with the more glamorous one, bar girl and tuk tuk driver came out.

 

I'd like to think that at least some student approached these jobs with passion, dedication and honesty, and that their English skills picked up in school helped them get a start.

We don't always get what we want, due to external circumstances. While I have had a very satisfying career in science, I still think pathology would have been a very strong suit for me. However, financially unachievable at the time.

Some people never develop a passion for any vocation, and just plod through life until they retire. Others are very good at what they do, but don't believe in it.

I have a friend who is quite wealthy as a result of being in senior management. He has said he envied my enjoyment of my chosen field.

I think that is the secret, enjoy you job and you will never work again

 I love mine and am happy to keep working at 63.

I read not so long ago that a team of scientists worked out the problem with Lithium batteries catching fire and created a fix for it. The team leader was/ is 91 years old.

I hate the word 'passion' people used to have hobbies or interests, when did this passion thing start, don't remember it being used 20 years ago. Every CV these days seems to have 'passionate' about this that and the other. WHat's the other one, oh yeah every one has a talent, no they don't.
