No Excuses, No Limits
One of the things that I enjoy most in life is finding those little treasures of inspiration that help to keep me going, especially on days when motivation may be lacking. Teaching can be a particularly difficult profession at times because day in and day out, we need to be present and mindful for our students in order to provide them with the very best learning experiences possible. Remaining motivated requires us to dig deep at times in order to keep the fire going in our jobs and personal lives.
To help combat those inevitable times of low motivation I love seeking out inspiring stories, quotes, photos, poems, books, and whatever else I can find that continue to help fuel the passion that I have for teaching and learning. I''m not afraid to admit that finding inspiration plays a pivotal role in shaping me as a teacher and a person. I'm making it a goal to share more of the inspirational treasures that I find, on my blog, in hopes that it helps others who may need a shot of motivation from time to time. I don't expect everyone to be moved by the same things that I am moved by, but hopefully if you dig around on my blog a bit, you'll find a gem or two that resonate with you.
Today's shot of inspiration for me was finding a video of an amazing 30-year old dancer/performer who we can learn so much from. His name is Luca Patuelli and he is from Montreal, Canada. Watch the video below to learn more about him and the motto in which he lives by, "No Excuses, No Limits". A very powerful video that you should share with all of your students regardless of age. Luca's life lesson is an important message for all of us. Thanks for reading!
