You've arrived. You put in the hours, the money, the time. Now you are the teacher. And therein lies the problem. Teaching is hard. And unlike flying, it is a "soft" skill. Success requires understanding two skills above all other: communication and psychology. You're a leader now. You have the technical skills to fly, now you have time to think. You have to embody the best practices of flying. You're the role model.
If I may paraphrase my editor: "I wish I had these when I was studying to be A CFI".
