Find Your Passion
When you find your passion in life, nothing can stop you from being successful because success will not be measured financially, it will be measured by your love of what you do. If you prepare for a job simply because of the wealth it creates, you will find yourself rich and miserable.

James Patterson is a children's author. He has written some wonderful children's stories, such as Middle School, Get Me Out of Here, and Maximum Ride. He gives lectures in front of high schools. That is a tough audience.

The first words out of his mouth are, Hi, I am Steven King. Once the kids settle down. He says, last year I made more money than LeBron James. Now he has their attention and maybe a few of the kids will find their passion in writing.

While James Patterson has an easy way of getting kids attention, teachers have to use a different route. No matter what subject it is, if the teacher communicates from the heart not the state required ciriculum, they will have just as much chance of driving passion in their students. Try it, you will like it.

Find your passion, inspire passion, and have a great school year.

Passion Quotes

  • Bill Cosby Anyone can dabble, but once you've made that commitment, your blood has that particular thing in it, and it's very hard for people to stop you.

  • Anthony Robbins There is no greatness without a passion to be great, whether it's the aspiration of an athlete or an artist, a scientist, a parent, or a businessperson.

  • Benjamin Franklin If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.

  • Ralph Waldo Emerson Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.

  • Abraham Lincoln Every man is proud of what he does well; and no man is proud of what he does not do well. With the former, his heart is in his work; and he will do twice as much of it with less fatigue. The latter performs a little imperfectly, looks at it in disgust, turns from it, and imagines himself exceedingly tired. The little he has done, comes to nothing, for want of finishing.
