Sean, chagrin

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.
Josie, Brisbane Austraia

It's really awesome!
alexia revatores, taguig

Brooke, sua história é muito bonita e admirável
Anderson de Sousa Almeida, Colatina

Stopping at nothing, And doing what's in your heart, You know is right, ...means determination
Mahesh, Chennai ,India

Determination is the act of not feeling sorry for oneself, because if we do then negative & destructive thinking & emotions will take control. Our Creator expects to less because we were created in his Image. Brooke has the determination but a strong will to succeed despite her problems, a great example to the rest of us.
keenpetite, Southeast Arizona

Determination is the ability to keep pushing no matter what obstacles are put in your path, a single person with a purpose and the determination to accomplish such a task is a force to be reckoned with, a force that once going, cannot easily be stopped.
