I'm sure you already know that accomplishing something great in life requires hard work. It is a common cliché to say that nothing good in life ever comes easily; anything worth doing requires hard work.

But what is going to motivate you to go through all of the struggles of accomplishing your goals? What will drive you through the challenges that stand between you and what you want to achieve?

There's really only one correct answer to these questions: Passion. Dave has talked about passion before and it is no secret that the best of the best in any industry have an unmatched passion for what they do — an athlete's love for his sport, a CEO's connection to his company, a writer's obsession with his work. But what about when that passion fades? What if it might never come back?

In this edition of Table Talk, Dave discusses passion and answers a very personal question: has he ever felt his passion slip away?
