I was reading the Comment in the TES this week by Michael Morpurgo, author, poet and former children's laureate...

"Children need to be motivated to learn by teachers who are motivated to teach. Motivation comes from loving it. So, if a teacher wishes to encourage children to love reading, they must love the books themselves. Teachers must have the confidence to bring a love of what they do - be it reading, writing, science, maths, languages, history, geography, sports, whatever - into school with them."

It's true wherever you are and whatever you do you should love what you do with a passion. The real trick in life is to find out what it is that really excites you and gives you that buzz and then find someone to pay you to do it!
