Passion is a funny thing: it makes us do stuff we'd see other people do and roll our eyes. We attended a T Harv Eker seminar in 2006 called Train the Trainer. T the T was a week of highly energized, content rich instruction based on the premise that everyone has a trainer inside them, and anyone can establish a seminar presence with that knowledge. It was fun, informative, frantic, and exhausting. Toward the end of the week we took part in a let-your-hair-down exercise involving a costume of our choice, a song, and a two minute audition in front of all other Trainees, with prizes for originality and pure nerve. There were no wardrobe malfunctions, but it was touch and go there for a time. The idea was to stir our passion, to touch our big why, as Jack Canfield says. The week flew by, and we heard over and over the primary lesson in reaching one's passion: Your comfort zone is your money zone. This is a cliché, but feel the fear and do it anyway. Be willing to be terrified. Passion is there; it's not going away.
