"Saved my life and pulled me out of one of the lowest points in my life"
It does not degrade you when others treat you poorly. It degrades them.
Be a lot less. Do a lot more.
What we need is not passion, but clear purpose and realism.
Take clear, iterative steps towards your goals, leveraging every step of the way. Avoid manifestos, epiphanies that emphasise grandeur and bravado over results and progress.
Passion is about you. Purpose is about others and what you want to create for them. Choose purpose.
Passion is no substitute for mastery, purpose and discipline.
