Determination & Diligence

Determination is “firmness of purpose”—knowing what you want and deciding to go after it.  Diligence is continuing to go after it even if it gets very hard—being persistent.  These are two qualities we admire and often judge others by.  Those with it often get our admiration and respect.  There is a plethora of great books on this theme, many taken from real life stories.
