Struggles, failures, mind numbing mundanity, disappointments, and naysayers are all part of the game that no person is exempt from. The invisible force that allows us to propel ourselves forward and persist against impossible odds is passion. The power of passion is limitless and is the main ingredient that is found in all human achievements. Greatness is not reserved for the meek that are afraid to assert themselves against life’s challenges. Those people succumb to the mighty force of soul-crushing mediocrity. Passion filled innovators, trailblazers, and those that refuse to lose live hard lives, but their contributions to society are forever felt. Let’s continue to get after life and live it with passion. Mediocrity will always welcome us with open arms, but its weak embrace could never satisfy a high achiever.
