“Passion can be described as the strong emotion that motivates us to move beyond our comfort zones to achieve the potential that resides within us”.
Here are the four attributes of successful people:
**To achieve world-class performance in professional pursuits (and recreational ones, too), we need to be able to carve out specific domains that we can focus on
**It is not enough to choose the domain; we must engage with it and explore its farthest reaches, its edges.
**It is necessary to form relationships that transcend short encounters an]d begin to build shared understanding of the domain.
**Shared passion creates a deep emotional bond that encourages people with different backgrounds and experiences to continue to engage with each other even when some of their most cherished assumptions are being challenged
