Desire, Determination and Tenacity

Desire the root of all action. Unless there is desire there can be no action.

But to yield results, desire must be translated into determination. A commitment to achieve the desired result must be explicit. In the endeavour there will enough testing moments. One gets tired, exhausted and bored. There has to be generous spirit which will rejuvenate you after every tiresome day. One has to be tenacious and tough. Whether the endeavour stretches or compresses you, you have to be ready to come back to normal state quickly and restart your action.

Come what may, you should not let go of your dreams. don't give up till the last minute of an opportunity.
