Passion is Necessary to Make a Difference! 

by William C. Jarvis, Ed.D.

During an interview of Phil Mickelson the well know golfer today on TV, he indicated he was involved in training teachers in math and science. He went on to say that training teachers is where you can make a difference. Most elementary teachers are not even certified to teach in these areas and lack the knowledge and passion to teach other than following the textbook. Therefore, most lack the love and enthusiasm for the subject. He emphasized “passion” while instructing. A person attains passion through an in depth understanding of the area he/she is attempting to involve the other person.

Caregivers can be empowering teachers to brain injury survivors.

Caregivers can be empowering teachers to brain injury survivors.

As a teacher, I know exactly what he was saying. When a person is very knowledgeable in a subject, he/she transfers that passion to others. Consequently, to foster improvement, a person that thoroughly understands improvement strategies will affect more change for a survivor in rehabilitation. This demonstrates a passion for improvement ideas. This is what I call “making a meaningful connection” with the other person.

Therefore, the excitement and support of the caregiver is crucial to the survivor! Show excitement and support for the survivor who has suffered a great loss. You will be an inspiration and more importantly, make a difference in another person’s life!

    Dear friends, I have been thinking about passion. Don’t be afraid to do some things you have passion for. Dare to live it! God doesn’t want us to be a cookie cutter type in the world. He made us special. Try not to be overwhelmed by the ways of the world. Maybe you don’t have the same brain or body as you had before. Be thankful for what you have now, and allow God to use you.
