25 years back, when Danny Meyer was advised by his uncle Richard at a dinner night to follow his dreams that made him so much excited and happy. It amazed Danny for a moment now.

But, if that particular conversation would not have taken place, this restaurant financier would have opened by no means, some of the most approved institutions in New York City altogether with the Union Sq. Café, Gramercy Tavern, Blue Smoke, and, even, Shake Shack. Meyer’s best burger chain went popular on 30th January. Shares in Shake Shack are more than doubled on its very first day of buying and selling, costing the corporate at $1.6 billion.

The media is quite smartly charmed with the story of a burger chain that started in a single blistering canine wagon in 2001. It’s an incredible tale. However, the story behind the tale is the best example for leaders in any platform.

Meyer’s success journey started from Elio, where his uncle aligned his profession with curiosity and keenness. Meyer, who is now the chief government officer of Union Square Hospitality Group, was amazed as he had assumed that everyone considered the meals the best way he did. Danny Meyer is very much passionate about food, but he used to consume food with hospitality. Danny asserts that in his 25 years of studying communication and leadership, he has not met any inspiring leader, who is not sufficiently passionate about what they do. In the past few years, he has realized that passion does not adequately explain the careers of the ultra successful ones. Meyer, who has learned every facet of Hospitality said he felt an intense desire may be an obsession that attracted him towards his actual dream and urge.

An economics professor Larry Smith says that true passion goes beyond the interest in something or anything. There would be twenty different interests, and one of them will grab you and will captivate you more than anything else.

Danny believes that there so many interests that grabs you and doesn’t let you go but the difference is we go for those what we think we are supposed to do.   Success leaves clues. Danny is truly passionate about food, but he has consumed in generating an emotional experience for his guests. That’s what makes Meyer’s restaurants different from many of his competitors.
