Will Versus Skill

The notorious NFL coach Vince Lombardi once noted; "The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of determination." Your ability and knowledge in your chosen field of endeavor is probably alright, particularly if you enjoy what you are doing. Skill is the how of what ever you are doing. Will deals with motivation, the reasons why you are doing it. To ensure success the WHY must be bigger than the HOW since it turns out will is more important than skill.
