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?

    My passion is learning the challenging, doing the difficult, and dreaming the impossible.

    No one taught me that I had to do this. I can't think of a role model I would want to emulate. I look after those I can, and promote ideas that may someday improve the lot of the rest.
