Industrious people are disciplined, goal-oriented, and capable. Because they believe in their own capabilities, they’re able to finish what they start without a hitch. They’re goal-oriented and feel prepared to deal with whatever they need to in order to complete what they set out to do.
They’re also able to deal with life’s challenges without getting easily discouraged, which helps them put in the work to meet their aspirations. Since they have a strong sense of internal motivation, the act of completing what they start is often a rewarding substitute for external validation.
