Determination. Everyone wants to be successful, but those who achieve success are steeled by an unwavering resolve. They are self-motivated – the kind of motivation that fueled and sustained Jack Nicklaus early in his pro career as he beat golf balls for an hour, then another, on the practice range until it was almost dark.
“Let’s go, Jack,” his new wife, Barbara, called out impatiently. “I’m hungry.” With callused hands, Nicklaus hit another ball, then another, then another into the dying light. “So am I,” Jack replied.
