It’s the Passion, Stupid!
I know a lot of talented people. Talented in a lot of different areas. Some of them are recognized as high achievers in their chosen endeavors. Some of them – some of us? – seem to be always waiting for the potential to be fulfilled. I’ve often wondered what the difference is.
Check this quote…
“And it hit me: while there is certainly no excellence without talent, it’s over-the-top enthusiasm that makes the real difference. True excellence fueled by passion doesn’t have to be outwardly encouraged, even in children. It doesn’t require ‘motivation’ – at least as we commonly practice it.
True excellence is about finding that one thing that you do well and want to do many hours a day, even when the field is muddy or your fingers bleed.”
