The essential conditions of everything you do must be choice, love, and passion.

Under the rubric of these three simple words—choice, love, and passion—we paint an image of what we want our lives to look like. Once we throw ourselves into this portrait, personal success and happiness become a natural part of our lives. If we have never defined our passion or refuse to pursue it, we merely go through the motions of life, never quite understanding why the success that others enjoy somehow eludes us.
