Passion is the genesis of genius:

“Passion is the genesis of genius.”
– Tony Robbins


Meaning of quote:

If you have emotion (meaning your passionate) you can find a way to be resourceful. It’s the beginning of genius. It’s like the Napoleon hill quote, “The starting point of all achievement is desire.”

Warren Buffett who is currently 90 years old is still running his company Berkshire Hathaway. From a young age he was fascinated with investing. By the age of 12 he had read all the books in the library on the subject of investing. If he didn’t like what he did he would’ve retired by the age of thirty when he made his first million.

Passion is not necessary to be successful.

But if you want longevity and to explore a subject deeply to the point where you’re considered the expert in the field that requires passion.

When your work becomes play to you, you’d be willing to go a lot further than anybody else. Whether you want to call this ‘genius’ is up to you.
