A leader with passion and little talent will always out perform a leader with talent and little passion. E.M. Forster said, “One person with passion is better than forty people merely interested.
However, our modern definition of passion leaves much to be desired, because we often limit our thinking to enthusiasm or excitement.
The word is originally derived from a Latin word that means “to suffer.”
Leaders need enthusiasm. They need to be driven to achieve their goals, but when leaders are passionate they willingly make sacrifices.
Leadership is never easy, but the results of passionate leadership are always life-changing.
