About

"When your greatest talent intersects with your greatest passion, you have discovered your sweet spot in life."

From the age of seven, Pat Williams's greatest passion was baseball. However, after two years in the minors, he had to admit it was not his greatest talent, and his career as a professional baseball player was at a dead end. But a phenomenally successful career in sports was just beginning. When he combined his passion for sports with his greatest talents--leadership, salesmanship, and promotion--he found his success intersection.

The success intersection is the spot that will result in your greatest personal success and satisfaction and your greatest impact on the world. With energy and enthusiasm, Williams shows you how to

· identify your greatest talent
· pursue your greatest passion
· multiply your efforts through teamwork

You'll discover how to maximize your natural gifting, focus your enthusiasm, and leverage your talent and passion into a lifetime of success.

"Growing up with a dad like Pat Williams means that from a very young age, I saw what passion looked like. As a child, I never understood how he was so excited to go to work every day, but now I know that it's because he was passionate about his message and he absolutely loved what he did.  He always used to say, 'You can't fake passion. You either have it or you don't.'  He sure had it, and still does--and it spreads like wildfire to everyone he meets. This book will help you pinpoint your 'sweet spot' and ignite a fire so bright, the world will sit up and take notice!"
