Determination

A very common saying you

may have heard adults say is

"You are as stubborn as a goat!"

But this can sometimes be a very good thing, because it means that you are determined. Being determined means that you will do the hard work to get something done. Goats are known for using their determination to climb very high mountains, and boy does it sure take strength and patience to climb a mountain.

 

You have to want to make it up to the top, and not give up! Even though climbing is tough, goats do their job playfully by jumping around from rock to rock, and even up into trees! They have fun too, because, well, why not?
