True stories of people making a difference--for others and for themselves. 

At the heart of Living Passionately is a simple truth: when you focus on what matters to you, your passion, you can really “come alive” and change the world. Maria and the 21 authors in this book share how they have found their passions and Maria poses thought-provoking questions at the end of each chapter helping guide the reader effortlessly through a mental journey that too few take the time or energy to navigate on their own. The result? An opportunity to reflect and find your true ultimate passion. To come alive. To change the world.
