One's own skills and talents, their concern for their own efforts. There is no necessity in a parent's love, nor in a friend -- Obviously, the summer figure is least important. A human mind would stagnate with skills, and the human mind being man's only source of existance, I more care about skill and art.
well it could be all of the above. I would have to say personally that Dedication would have to be stick with something through thick and thin. Never yielding to any obstacle and Never losing focus to what is important.
Dedication is doing something again and again, or for a long period of time, not because you have to or feel obliged to but because you want to. I chose 'a friends constant support' because i think that is one part where you really choose to be dedicated, rather than some other factor choosing for you.
Dedication is the act of putting one thing before all others. The father who works 70 hours a week to make ends meet. The doctors who work hard to eradicate the HIV virus. The president who...ummm...nevermind. The mother who shows up to every Little League game. Those are great examples of dedication.
