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 2 2011: my passion for animals was the life saver I needed following redundancy in 2009. I decided I would never work without passion again and set about learning all I could to become a dog trainer. I have re-discovered curosity, filled my home with pets, relaxed about house cleaning and the gym, spent a month in India and all because of my love for dogs.
