Grit--- perseverance and passion for long term goals.
Grit is less common among individuals today but is more needed. The pace of life today has spawned both an innate expectation for instant results and a dearth of delayed gratification in people. Yet, we all know that the most rewarding things in life take time. The greater the struggle, the more glorious the triumph. Find the deepest meaning in a goal that will bring out the grit in you. Once you've experienced grit, nothing in life is impossible.
