English Word For 'ज़िद्दी' (Hindi) ?

I'm looking for an apt word to describe 'ज़िद्दी' (Hindi Word). Someone who's stubborn about getting the things done, 'never give up' attitude, who won't take 'no' as an answer (in a positive way).

The synonym I found online is 'Stubbron' but the word carries a negative aura around it. I'm planning to write a blog post, but not able to find the correct word that describes a ज़िद्दी person in a positive way.

Can someone help?

That's one option, yep. I'm looking for one word that correctly conveys the meaning.

Yeah, but 'Ziddi' doesn't come out of them. Damn you, English 😁

Yep, that can work too. Tenacious and steadfast are closer to 'ziddi' I guess.
Resolute or Indomitable 😀
