3.    I have a good capacity to focus on daily tasks.
4.    From time to time I imagine ways to use opportunities that I have given up.
5.    Long term purposes motivate me to surmount day to day difficulties.
6.    Once I decide to do something‚ I am like a bulldog: I don’t give up until I reach the goal.
7.    Even though it doesn’t matter anymore‚ I keep thinking of personal aims that I had to give up.
8.    I purposefully pursue the achievement of the projects that I believe in.
9.    I continue a difficult task even when the others have already given up on it.
10.I often find myself thinking about older initiatives that I had abandoned.
