Why Determination Matters

There are some character qualities that make a Big Difference.
Determination is one of them.

When I think of determination - I think of devotion, commitment, perseverance, hard work, persistance, and high intentionality...

We love to talk about Talents, Strengths, Gifts...
And we really love the one who is the "natural talent," the "born-talent."

There are plenty of studies that remind us that while talent counts, while "innate ability" (however much you may believe in it) helps, in the long run, it is those with determination to improve, to reach the goal, to meet the challenge, to improve and grow and learn - that actually accomplish what they set out to do.

Determination matters a very great deal. You can read about it in this super short article - Why Determination Matters.
