Sacrifice and Commitment

Screen shot 2012-12-10 at 5.31.31 PMClayton M. Christensen in his book, How Will You Measure Your Life?, writes (p. 115):

“This may sound counterintuitive, but I deeply believe that the path to happiness in a relationship is not just about finding someone who you think is going to make you happy. Rather, the reverse is equally true: the path to happiness is about finding someone who you want to make happy, someone whose happiness is worth devoting yourself to…. [W]hat cements that commitment is the extent to which I sacrifice to help [someone] succeed and for [that someone] to be happy.”

Question: How does this quote align with educators in K-12 public education?
