Determination is the engine which drives perseverance. But the beginning of it all is commitment.
Bortier, Ballarat

Yes I agree that determination is the ability to keep pushing no matter what. However, this is the same as addiction. knowing when to yield is just as important as determination in my opinion. A strong mind can also be a mind that cannot change direction for the better when needed. The current of determination is good if not tainted with ignorance.
