So you want to find your passion and be satisfied with your work? It probably will not surprise you to learn that, in general, drive and determination, not great natural talent, lead to exceptional success. The old belief that “talent will surface” on its own is largely a myth. In the book Outliers, author Malcolm Gladwell says that it takes roughly ten thousand hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field. It’s a combination of hard work, commitment, grit and self-confidence that helps one persist to reach a level of high achievement.
When people who are passionate and high in need for achievement tackle a task, they do so with perseverance, passion and self-confidence. They tend to complete difficult tasks and they tend to excel in their occupations. When the going gets tough, the high achievers get going.

One simple plate. One beautiful result.
