Looking for the approval of your students, you will find fear.
Being known as a great teacher will cause you to suffer.
How do I work this out?
Approval cheapens you.
Each time you run to the jump, thoughts of failure emerge.
Each time you fail the jump, you look around for blame.
And how does being a great teacher cause you to suffer?
Simple! Now there’s even further to fall.
Concern yourself with you and you’ll be ready to teach them.
Enjoy your work and the students will enjoy your lessons.
