Passion and meditation

Camille, thank you for your comment to my “Family Influence” post. You touch on something that has always been important to me, and I tried to include that message in the book: being a businessman is no different from any other worthy calling. To do anything right we need to have passion. A good teacher has passion. A good cleric has passion. A good entrepreneur has passion. That passion provides us with the deepest energy to persist, overcome, create, touch. And to be able to channel our passion properly we need to have a level of self-awareness, which in my case was aided by my practice of meditation. You are a dance teacher and a journalist. I have seen some of your work. It comes from a deep place within you, and that is what makes it powerful and, very importantly, enables you to reach people.

  1. You are so right, Ricardo. And I might add that passion is in the mind and heart , but also in the external qualities we look for in our leaders such as their body language and their voices. You can’t fake passion.
