1)Figure out what gets your adrenaline going. 2) Figure out a way to make a career out of your passion. 3) Outwork everyone around you. – Anderson Cooper
#3 is out particular importance as it includes coming in earlier, staying later and volunteering for the work that others don't want to do.
If you struggle with identifying your passion, Anderson adds “When you're more interested in what you're doing than going out for a drink with friends, you've found your bliss.” I would have said it a bit differently, but that works too!
