Identity

As I get older and further into my retirement, the idea of who and what I am is a major league question. During my work years, I spent my time on a schedule for others and “finding myself” really wasn’t something that I had time or energy to do. Once released of the burden of working a job for a living, purpose is a must. Just what is that purpose?

One of the greatest teachers ever was one who came to serve and not to be served. Yes, these are words from church and they still ring true although I have a hard time being in church these days. As a worker in the world, I had often wondered if there was a conflict between giving everything away and verses talking about prosperity. As I have matured and gotten away from my “job” things are getting clearer.

I used to be a teacher in the public schools and I have really begun seeing what is taking place all over society and even in our schools. Truth be told, I never really did know whether I was effective at my job. Truly, those who are effective should be able to see it in their compensation and not on an annual evaluation. Our own reward should be related to our effectiveness and our effectiveness should be measurable in other peoples prosperity.

There is a way to ethically be compensated for the good work of being a teacher and a coach. It means changing the fundamental belief that where there are winners that there have to be losers as well. I am not talking about participation trophies here…I am speaking of reality.

Today, what I teach pays really well and the students get paid as they learn. Sounds crazy? It’s not. Join me at one of my brief sessions over ZOOM. Better yet, subscribe and don’t miss out.
