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 have discovered and am currently developing my passion for poetry. I don't really discuss what's bothering me or what hurts, etc. so through my poems I feel as though I am able to convey every emotion I feel deeply about.
