Vince Papale “walked on” to the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1970s and made history. An unknown 30 year old guy from the neighborhood who never played football decided to try out and became an NFL legend. Disney even made a movie about him called Invincible.
Vince’s football days are behind him and now he travels the country giving talks and motivating everyone from corporate executives to high school athletes.
Vince’s story is impressive, for sure, but as I photographed him during a recent event, it was obvious to me that it all boils down to passion. Passion is that driving energy available to all of us. It’s when desire for an outcome obliterates all doubt and resistance. As Vince so clearly describes and demonstrates, passion doesn’t just happen. You cultivate it.
