There’s a lot of value in looking at the journeys of people who achieved maximum impact through their passion and sense of purpose. People like Jane Goodall who I spoke about in Episode 50.
Which is why I'm sharing another story about someone who successfully blended passion with purpose - Walt Disney. (Besides I do love a good story.)
When I teach a writing class the first thing I tell students is NOT to compare their work with anyone else's but especially not with their heros. The same advice holds true if you are building a purpose-based business. There will be a lot of rough drafts and hard work between you and the future you envision. If you trust the process and follow the path as it appears it can be even more amazing than you could have imagined.
Walt Disney's experience has a lot to teach us about passion and perseverance.
