I realized that passion is important, especially in teaching. For without it everything will be difficult.

and how to keep this passion burning is not easy either. Just have to not to complicate things, make it
simple.

Making sure that work is done with quality, love and care. Put my heart into it.

Seeing the potential in every kid, no matter others think are hopeless.

I know those souls are the ones that are worth saving. Believing in those kids and entrusting them that
they can do it.

Helping them to get courage to achieve their dreams.

I want to teach, guide, and most of all I want to make a difference. They need to learn to have
confidence in their abilities and their work. They also need to learn to have confidence in themselves.
They need to understand that they are special, and that they are wonderful for just being themselves.

I am hoping to influence them not only in their core curriculum but also in their ability to solve
problems. I don’t necessarily want the students to memorize facts. I want them to learn and retain the
information on how to find the answers.

I’m a Technology and Livelihood Education teacher, we learn by doing, practical applications. Some are
not written in the books. They need and have to discover it themselves.

Teaching is very exhausting, we all know that. Especially us parents as well, yet here we are finding ways
to make everything better. I try to spend some time doing the things I love. Sometimes new challenges
take me out of my comfort zone. Some of my plans have failed, and I’m still learning along with the
students. Maybe instead of financial help I need a partner to make a new opportunity worth pursuing. A
collaborator makes the unknown less scary—and hopefully more fun. I just have to choose wisely.

Taking on new experiences and opportunities should be energizing, not exhausting.

I continue to feel energized and passionate about teaching despite the fact that I have only been
teaching for two years in public school. I love kids and I love my job, but I think I would lose some of my
passion if I didn’t continually find new opportunities and new outlets for my creativity and energy. I
hope you find ways to do the same.

But on the other hand, I have come to a realization that there is another side of it as well. A heart is not
so easy to persuade. It is sad. There is the reality of earning money and bringing food at the table so that
our family will live decently. I am a solo parent of three, and i have to balance work and family. It is very
difficult, but I know my journey is just beginning. I have a goal, a dream, which I must work hard to
achieve. Giving up is not an option. I have to keep forward no matter what. For my three kids, I am the
only one they’ve got. I am the only one they can depend on.

I will do my job, no matter how hard, whatever it takes. It is for them, the only family I have. That is my
passion.

Thank you.

Three types of Goals. There are 3 types of goals: Outcome goals, process goals, and
performance goals. Each of the 3 types differs based on how much control we have over it. We
have the most control over process goals and the least control over outcome goals.

The most important of which being that there are 5, not 1, keys to success. They are:
Determination, Skill, Passion, Discipline And Luck. Determination is necessary but, like each of

The word vision comes from the Latin visionem, meaning wisdom. Having a vision is
having the wisdom to see past certain events in expectation of a greater outcome.
Growing up in Communist Romania, I dreamed of coming to America with a tenacity
and fervor which might scare most people. My personal ambition had been
conceived from a very young age. And I remained loyal to my aim through the years,
allowing it to guide me through the necessary steps to help it come true. I sewed my
vision to the very fibers of my being, so that it became inseparable from who I was.
On my own journey, I realized that all visions become reality as a result of three
factors: creativity, perseverance, and actions.

Our personal vision begins to manifest once we learn how to use our three eyes: the
two eyes with which we see the physical world, and our mind's eye which allows us to
project far beyond now. Our mind's eye is an omnipotent and omniscient tool. Our
two eyes may see the new house we're thinking of buying, for example, but our
mind's eye sees a home for many years, a growing family, and the chance for a great
investment. We must fashion our visions from the threadwork of our own needs,
abilities, and expanding opportunities -- from the reality we see blended with the
reality we wish to see.

Create a bigger version of yourself. We have the tendency to place


ourselves within boundaries that define who we can and cannot be. This
mindset causes us to settle for the lowest level of our potential. Form a clear,
detailed picture of what the bigger version of your life looks like, one in which
you've already attained your greatest goals and fulfilled your deepest desires.
Painting a mental image helps you understand what it is you really want.
Write down your objectives. We all have ambitions, and some are more
significant than others. Make a list of your ten most important aspirations,
and circle at least one you plan to achieve within the next year.
Plan a strategy and timeline. A strategy specifies the actions you will take
in order to advance towards a goal. If your vision is to own your own home,
your strategy should include how to earn or save the money to buy one. Be
realistic about timing and consider all factors that could work for or against
you. Keeping a timeline also keeps you on track with your intentions.
Check your emotions. Our vision fogs up when emotions are involved. We
simply can't visualize the outcome of something to which we've become
attached. When you hit a wall of traffic, you become stuck and can't see up the
road to detect what's causing the jam. Your vision is blocked. This is what
happens when your own emotions create a wall before your mind's eye,
keeping you from anticipating what's to come in any given situation. By
learning to control your emotions you can detach long enough to see the truth
of what awaits.
Take the first step. Putting your intentions to use initiates action. Your first
step may be a leap of faith, but it is with this first step that you prove to
yourself your own abilities.
Envision your outcome along the way. Keep your eye on the prize. Don't
allow yourself to become distracted or deterred from your goals. Continue to
practice the same vision you've always dreamed to be your reality, the one you
know you deserve.
See the bigger reason behind setbacks. As we said, wisdom means
having an higher understanding of why certain things are happening. Always
remind yourself that there is a greater purpose to all events.
Ask for help. The universe wants you to succeed and will guide you if you
just ask. Help may not come immediately but when it does, you will receive
more than you imagined.
Pay attention to the people you meet along the way. Everyone who
comes into your life serves a role and a purpose. Encountering negativity
should only reassure you of your own strengths.
Never, ever give up Simply having a vision does not fulfill it; you must work
to materialize your dream. You will experience bumps along the road and
people who will try to keep you from succeeding, but mustn't allow yourself to
be intimidated. Remember that you are on a mission to achieve something
incredible, and it'll take a lot to stop you.
Celebrate your achievements. Your journey must include time of
reflection. Compare where you were five years ago with where you are now
and congratulate yourself for your achievements both big and small. Don't
forget to reward yourself for your hard work, careful planning, and strong
character.
Never repeat old mistakes. Learning entails personal evolution -- evolving
to take new actions and to stay away from past actions. Learn from your
mistakes and don't put yourself through situations which you know will attract
a similar outcome.
Like laying out an open map of your life, expanding your vision means seeing
the full spectrum beyond the present in anticipation of greater prospects. Take
into account my 12 steps to envision the limitless possibilities before you and
step into your future.
To your future,
Dr. Carmen Harra
