Determination is having made a firm decision and being resolved not to change it. Resolved not to change it, the second part is worth repeating.
To not change course when things get difficult or when progress is slow.
If you are working towards something meaningful, it will be difficult, it won’t be fast, it will not go as perfectly as you plan it. These facts should be expected upfront. You have to go in knowing there is a daily battle to be fought.
This will never change. You can either accept that reality and move forward or stay where you are and accept defeat.
How DETERMINED are you in your pursuit?
