Determination is absolutely vital for anyone trying to create a change in their environment. It is the most vital element of accomplishing anything. The trick is to maintain, strengthen and develop that determination so that it always grows. This is what I am working on, not just for the village, but my whole life. One of the ways I am doing this is taking more action to demonstrate to myself that I am developing the village each day as I develop myself. So I am learning to be a stronger person, toughening up so that I don’t give up or get wishy-washy at the first sign of trouble. I must create the village, and it begins with me.
