How to Discover Leadership with Passion

I was watching the recent Paralympics and witnessed a remarkable woman swimmer with one leg. Prior to her swimming competition, they featured her training regimen. Along with her incredible commitment, what struck me the most was her passion. You could see, sense, and almost feel it, radiating from inside of her.
  • Her drive for success
  • Her commitment to excellence
  • Her willingness to pay the price
  • Her desire to reach her goal

How about you?

Are you passionate about who you are and what you do in life?

Without discovering your true passion, you:
  1. Will get by with ordinary results.
  2. Will hit the snooze button.
  3. Will watch time pass you by.
  4. Will live for Friday, and dread Monday.
  5. Will convince yourself that working less and getting by is not a bad way to go.

How do you find your passion?

Here are some questions to help out:

  1. What activity do you most enjoy in your work?
  2. What fires you up?
  3. What intrigues you?
  4. What do you love to study?
  5. Who inspires you?
  6. What matters most to you in work and life?
  7. What do you want to be remembered for?

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs summed up the importance of passion in the face of adversity:
