Who are you being?

Via TED

Benjamin Zander on music and passion:

“I realized my job was to awaken possibility in other people. And of course, I wanted to know whether I was doing that.And you know how you find out? You look at their eyes. If their eyes are shining, you know you’re doing it. You could light up a village with this guy’s eyes.(Laughter) Right. So if the eyes are shining, you know you’re doing it. If the eyes are not shining, you get to ask a question. And this is the question: who am I being, that my players’ eyes are not shining? We can do that with our children, too. Who am I being, that my children’s eyes are not shining? That’s a totally different world.”
