Hard work and enthusiasm don’t serve much purpose if done only sparingly or for a short period of time. There has to be a determination to push through and stay the course no matter how difficult the course becomes. It is easy to quit, to turn back or to give in. Don’t ever quit, continue trying. Try harder, smarter, but try again.
This personal characteristic is as important as any.There are plenty of times in everyones career and life where they struggle. Ex. Michael Jordan was cut from his High School basketball team. It is okay to get discouraged, but keep pushing: keep moving forward.
This is one reason we have Gamers players set goals. To push them to learn how to achieve. It is also the reason that our expectations are so high. It takes intentness to meet high expectations.
