It is often believed that becoming an Eagle Scout is hard. This is incorrect. It is not hard, it is actually a lot of fun - and a great adventure. But, what it does take is diligence, perseverance, organization, and desire. If you desire to have fun, then you can get there. If you know how to get organized, then you can get there. If you know how to follow up, to stay after something - then yes, you too can be an Eagle Scout.
