Want Versus Resolve

Commencement. I attended the Graduation Ceremony for two remarkable young men this weekend. The extraordinary keynote speaker was their high school English teacher, and one of the most humorous, insightful speakers I've ever heard. Upon entering their new life, he urged the young grads to focus on a concept brought to him by his father; a military man. The concept of Want Versus Resolve. In my studies, I've found 'want' of something to be suggestive that I don't have it already...that I don't have the capacity at this moment to have it. In my experience, I'm capable of having whatever I wish, but I must have resolve to get it. And then do the work. What do you think?
