The whole world knows about the death of Steve Irwin and how tragic the loss. He was one of a kind and should never be forgotten - especially his passion.
Steve was passionate for animals, wildlife and conservation, and died while pursuing that passion. And although he may be gone now, we can all learn something from his dedication to a dream. Whether you liked him or not, there was no doubting his enthusiasm for animals. He was a soul on fire and thanks to Animal Planet, everyone got to see him burn!
How unique was Steve? Let's put it this way - how many people do you know that are willing to die for their passion? How many people out there are so fired up about their dream they appear almost fanatical?
Sad thing is ... not many.
Most people don't even have something they believe in that strongly. And that's the greatest shame, for to truly feel alive, one must have a passion, a vision, they are willing to pursue to the very end.
The alternative? Mere existance.
What's YOUR passion?
