What is your greatest passion and how have you been able to develop and sustain it?

I am curious about when people developed a long standing passion and what caused them to become inspired by the topic/activity. Did you discover it on your own or was it the result of the modelling of others. Is there greater motivation to act primarily for self improvement or for the betterment of others?

    Sep 1 2011: I beleive that in some way the things that you do during life, finally come together to present your passion. It is getting to that stage where you can actually recognise what that passion is and how all your jigsaw pieces come together.
    My passion is bringing stories to life, so for the last ten years I have interviewed people for books and magazine articles. The world of publishing and getting the story out has changed so much in the last five years. Now I mentor people to bring that story to life.
