Passion...Who Needs It?: A Practical, Action-Oriented Exploration of Passion and Purpose, and Steps You Can Take If Your Inner Fire Has Burned Itself Out by Shaunice Hawkins (Paperback / softback, 2010)
You're at your best, in every sense of the word, when you are passionate. But, when life leaves you feeling unmotivated, directionless and stuck, you can experience pain, loss - even grief - as a result. Passion...Who Needs It? offers you the perfect mix of advice, coaching and motivation needed to rekindle your inner fire, rediscover your purpose, and help you live the fully realized life you were always meant to live. There is passion to be found in playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. - Nelson Mandela Don't settle for playing small. Get your fire, your passion and your life back NOW!
