Determination

(vs. faintheartedness)

Overcoming obstacles to reach my goal

To practice Determination I will:

  • Set goals.
  • Make sure my goals are right.
  • Ignore distractions.
  • Not be discouraged by others.
  • Face problems head on.

Since the opposite of Determination is Faintheartedness, then Stoutheartedness would be a synonym of Determination. The image of a stouthearted person conjures up someone hunkered down, prepared for battle, ready to do whatever it takes for what they believe in. A Determined person will harness that brute force strength with wisdom to act with purpose and within appropriate boundaries. Determination requires lion-hearted courage when obstacles get in the way. There’s nothing half-hearted about Determination!

This month let Determination motivate you to achieve a worthy goal.

“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.”
– Colin Powell
