Chapter 12: Obsession Isn't a Disease; It's a Gift
“Work is better than vacation—and it is important to have a purpose to wake up each day.” — Shimon Peres
Some people consider the word “obsession” to be negative. But to achieve big things, thought and consideration should be dominated by obsession and passion. When we are obsessed with an idea or goal, we find a way and the power to make it come true.
While most people put in only enough effort to feel like they are working, successful people perform every action with obsession and treat it as a reward. Children are a perfect example of inherent obsession. They act like this until society tells them that it is wrong. The ones who keep acting obsessively are called crazy and weird until they become successful. Then they are called geniuses.
