Henry Fonda was still throwing up before each stage performance..even when he was 75.
Did he hate acting? Unlikely. He had a celebrated career spanning 5 decades.
He must have been terrified sick before each performance. But he showed up anyway.
We’ve all heard the advice: “Do what you love. Life is too short to keep doing things that we’re not passionate about.”
“Do what you love. Life is too short to keep doing things that we’re not passionate about.”
All of us have seen the leaders and teachers we respect..how they show up every single day inspiring us with their consistent action.
That’s why they’re professionals.
From the outside, we can’t tell whether they’re having a bad day or a good day. They show up and do their thing, no matter what.
As professionals, they don’t use their feelings to decide whether to show up or not.
It’s their strong sense of responsibility that drives them forward every day.
Responsibility to their students. To their community. To their craft.
Whether 40 students attend the class. Or 20. Or 5. Or none.
“Even if only one student attends..I need to be there..fully engaged and ready to teach.” – I’ve heard this from many teachers.

They teach me to keep showing up, no matter what.
