Determination: Your Purpose in Life

Don’t diminish the significance of self-motivation.
Discipline: Achieve Your Goals

Growing up, he confronted bullying from peers due to his passion, as a young adult he conquered alcoholism and sadly passed away recently following his fight with cancer. Yet these challenges didn’t deter him from fulfilling his purpose in life. His commitment and determination to succeed strengthened his discipline to take the necessary actions to achieve his goals in life.
