    And never forget or underestimate the sheer "Power of Passion"!

    Vince Lombardi's secret?
    An overwhelming desperation to prove his value  |  Linkedin, Sam Walker                              05/20/2017        LOS ANGELES, 1967:  Head down, chin strap unfastened, his mind in a whirl, Willie Davis
     chugged into the shadows of the stadium tunnel. The team he played for, the Green Bay
     Packers, held a narrow 14–10 lead at halftime over the Kansas City Chiefs, but as he
     walked into the locker room and scanned the faces of his teammates, he could tell he
     wasn’t the only one with a knot in his stomach. “There was a bit of fear,” he said.

     Traditional advice says, “Find a job. Any job.” But the world’s most successful people say,

      people in the world. Tech entrepreneurs like Larry Page, Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos
      know the best laid plans lie not in the details, but in the spark that initiated them.

      "A consuming passion is the last thing you think about before you go to bed at night and
      the first thing you think about when you wake up," says Brian Schwartz, author of the
      award-winning 50 Interviews series. "It feels like an addiction, and if someone told you
      to stop, it would be impossible for you to give it up.
" Schwartz explains that those who
      have been lucky enough to recognize and pursue their passion(s) don't really care if
      they are 
getting paid to do it or not. It's a part of their purpose, their calling in life,
      and without it, something is missing.
