Athletes must dig down deep in the heat of competition to win; people must dig down deep in the game of life to succeed. The deeper we dig, the higher we soar.
Robert J. Wright
Your opponent, in the end, is never really the player on the other side of the net, or the swimmer in the next lane, or the team on the other side of the field, or even the bar you must high-jump. Your opponent is yourself, your negative internal voices, your level of determination.
You cannot be wimpy out there on the dream-seeking trail. Dare to break through barriers, to find your own path.
I never could have done what I have done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time.
If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying, ”Here comes number seventy-one!”

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

Stopping at nothing,
And doing what's in your heart,
You know is right,
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.

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.
