Own Your Passion: passion statement
Your passion can be your best advocate in life. When one speaks with his or her true passion, genuine communication starts to click, new relationships start to form and team starts to move forward. Without a passion statement in agreement, I was caught by surprise to hear "my" passion speaking for me with a narrative that I did not agree with! I wish I could have sit down to take part in writing the “script”. Here is your opportunity to own your passion by following three simple steps.
"Keep it simple" is probably the best advise I can give you when you write your statement.
In the SandBox, you can write down your passion statement and submit the final version to your coach for feedback. You can also opt to record your passion statement by clicking "video" button.
