The Abstract

You can craft your perfect life!

As teachers, we shape young minds and build scientists, politicians, engineers, artists, poets, musicians, philosophers and the myriad forms of human accomplishment.

But teachers also feel stress and, occasionally, a disconnect from the ideals that led us into our profession.

Imagine getting up in the morning with your blood singing at the thought of being who you are and doing what you do. Imagine coming radiantly alive several times each day and feeling like sinking to your knees in involuntary gratitude at the tremendous good fortune that has been bestowed on you. Imagine moving through life with a deep sense of purpose, knowing that you are doing exactly what you were set on earth to do.

This is not a pipe dream. It is achievable and YOU can get there.The first step is for you to understand deep, deep down that this is possible and determine that you will settle for nothing less. The next step is to begin your travel using the proven tools you will be given. This will take years, decades and quite possibly the rest of your life. The destination is immaterial; the journey is all there is. After a while you find that a lasting and ineffable joy is your constant companion.

There are benefits galore when you begin this transformation. You feel inspired, relationships improve across the board, stress decreases markedly—what once would have been an insurmountable obstacle now becomes a bump in the road. You experience a quantum leap in productivity and regularly come up with highly innovative solutions to knotty problems.
