In the past three years, the world has struggled with tribulations, stress, and regret, but as we recede from the pandemic, we rethought what we once took for granted. We redirected our attention to what matters most and a new mindset in our lives. People worldwide have found their unique passions, taking action to the fullest extent to fight and defend their dreams. However, maintaining consistency in generating passion is most challenging. Passion is not innate but cultivated.

It is a discipline to revert ourselves to what is most important. To remind ourselves why the goals are worth pursuing and why they matter, even when we're rejected, beaten up, or have fallen down. It takes courage to confront obstacles and persevere, even when the path is not easy. To pick ourselves up and to start again for our passion. This is discipline.

We hope the unique ideas presented in TEDxGeorgeMasonU will spark a new revelation and inspire you to ponder your passion and means of cultivating it. What ends are you willing to meet for your goals? What is your discipline for passion?
