Harnessing The Power Of Passion
“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” —Bruce Lee.
In this unit, the author highlights the importance of passion and practice.
1) Identify your interests and strengths and allow them to guide you
Experiment with new activities and hobbies to find those that bring you joy and motivate you to improve. Allowing the interests to guide your choices will bring you more satisfaction and success.
2) Deliberate practice leads to perfection
Excellence is not something we are born with; it is something we achieve through practice and perseverance. To be successful, the practice must be deliberate: one must set a goal for themselves and devise a plan to achieve it. One should also consider finding a mentor from whom they can learn firsthand.
