DETERMINATION AND PERSISTENCE​: THE DISCOVERY OF HAWAII

Determination and persistence are very key in the difficult journey of success. Hawaii now a beautiful tourist country was discovered by sheer hard work, persistence and undying determination.

Hawaii as we see on the map of the world, is on the isolated spot on the planet to indicate that, it was well hidden to man before its discovery.

Polynesians​ who inhabited and explored many Islands in the South Pacific, noticed a bird called Golden Plover, migrated every year into the open water.

They would set sail from Marquesas to follow the bird(Golden Plover) using wooden carved​ boats, armed only with their own knowledge of naval navigation!

The Polynesians​ would follow the birds closely but the birds flew faster than they could paddle! At the point they​ lost track, they would turn back.

However, each year they would try again picking up where they left! It took the Polynesians 400 years to finally reach Hawaii!!
