“Without Passion – We are but Machines,” says Amar Singh, a writer, author, and an industry influencer and leader in the domain of cyber security.
Passion is what drives this cyber warrior, who is the founder of a not-for-profit organisation Give01Day.com and Cyber Management Alliance. And it is true. We all have something that makes us feel alive, a passionate pursuit which adds that little extra meaning to life, an activity that provides us with a sense of fulfillment, of purpose. If one doesn’t know that then life might feel unfulfilling for many. With passion and persistence, you can do anything. As long as you have the passion, the drive, and the focus, the most difficult of the problems can be tackled.
