The Passion Paradox

The Passion Paradox

Brad Stulberg

Overview

Nowadays 'follow your passion' is common advice. Coaches and commencement address champions will tell you that pursuing your passion is the only way to achieve your full potential and be happy. On the other hand, many people think searching for your passion will likely lead you to dissatisfaction or trouble. You may end up never discovering what you really love and becoming frustrated. Or you can find it and go all-in for years, making yourself lonely, unhealthy, or poor.

The Passion Paradox: A Guide to Going All In, Finding Success, and Discovering the Benefits of an Unbalanced Life highlights that passion is a gift, but that it can also lead you to destructive behavior if you don't know how to manage it.
