What is it that drives our lives, especially as leaders?
Steve Jobs once said, “It [what you choose to do] has got to be something that you’re passionate about because otherwise you won’t have the perseverance to see it through.”
While we associate passion with excitement or enthusiasm, there is much more involved.
Passion is from a Latin word associated with suffering or sacrifice.
When leaders are passionate, it is seen by what they are willing to suffer, sacrifice, or give up in order to achieve the goal.
When passion is present, leaders persevere to see it through.
