INN: You’re moving alot and investing yourself on others, what does it takes for the aspiring leaders to have your kind of drive?
Miss Comfort: Focus is important because it helps to remind you of where you are going.
Determination is important because it helps to remain focused amidst challenges and tribulations,
Commitment is important because it renews your focus and determination,
Continuity is expedient because it helps the commitment, focus and determination not to end up being a waste.
Sacrifice is germane because it is solely the price to pay and without this, there’s little or nothing to achieve.
