Drive to Passion

Drive to Passion

The methods of attaining great heights are frequently discussed, with many postulations propounded by pundits and individuals of phenomenal accomplishments, yet reaching the pinnacle of such heights remains ever so elusive to the masses; hence, only a select few are able to make these extraordinary strides. In Drive to Passion, Ted Obomanu chronicles the lives of a few highly accomplished individuals: • Harland Sanders, a perfectionist, who was the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC); • Winston Churchill, the vivacious and popular prime minister of Britain, who led his country to victory during the Second World War; • Joseph Kennedy, patriarch of the Kennedy clan, business mogul, and kingmaker; • Sidney Poitier, acclaimed actor and the first African-American movie star to receive an Oscar in a leading role; • Abraham Lincoln, one of the greatest presidents of the United States, responsible for the abolition of slavery; • Suze Orman, financial guru and popular TV host who epitomizes passion; • Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the United States, who accomplished this unprecedented feat despite its improbability; • Oprah Winfrey, owner of a TV network, one of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world, and was the host and producer of one of the most popular TV shows ever. Obomanu does this to explore firsthand how these individuals were able to reach the summit of their vocations. He also turns the chronicling of these great individuals’ lives into an intriguing narrative, without compromising the lessons. Obomanu makes significant findings in this book: Passion more than anything else is responsible for success and greatness, which is self-evident in the lives of the great individuals he chronicles; to attain distinction, the quest for passion should always be centered around a niche; passion is fueled by drive, and a shift in focus from passion to the rewards of accomplishments, such as wealth, may potentially derail the attainment of success and greatness; mentors play a huge role in the accomplishment of our goals. At the conclusion of this great reading, Obomanu delves into how spirituality and personal development can greatly enhance the quest for passion and how the pursuit of passion can trigger happiness and longevity. He sums up by asserting that the aspiration of success and greatness should be driven by all the components of passion to ensure its sustainability and potential value to society.
