What critical qualities define any sort of achievement?
It doesn’t matter whether achievement is winning an oscar, learning to sing, starting a business or raising a child; nothing good ever happens without overcoming multiple obstacles.
It is impossible to achieve anything without attaining the personal qualities of both persistence and determination. When obstacles come and pressure builds, these two qualities enable a person to continue to seek progress, to ask the right questions, to find their way around or through their road block.
Can you build courage, can you learn persistence, can you become increasingly determined?
When obstacles appear, do not panic or flee, simply remain, stare down your foe and wait for courage to come.
