Passion Sparks Action!
A passionate attitude is a new beginning… the outlook that we can change the world, one small step at a time.
“Passion is the Genesis of Genius” – Anthony Robbins
My brother believes strongly in recycling. You could say he has a passionate attitude about it. One day, at a family reunion, he gathers up all the plastic bottles. As people watched, he quietly took the bottles to a recycling center. When he returns, someone asks “what are you doing?” and he has statistics ready to share. My brother tells us how long it takes a plastic bottle to break down, and how easily it can be recycled. Soon, he has converts, and now almost everyone in the family recycles.
Can you see the genius in what my brother did? His Inner Q – the combination of questions, curiosity and passion, motivated him to do research. His preparation put him in the perfect position to elicit change. Prior to his witness, he discovered the nearby recycling center. He memorized the facts he needed. He waited until he had a captive audience, and made his move. His passion became the genesis of genius – creating real and lasting change.

Are you willing to exert maximum effort?
