THE “WHAT WHY & HOW” OF DETERMINATION

From The Virtues Project Educator’s Guide

WHAT IS DETERMINATION?

Determination is focusing your energy and efforts on a task then sticking with it until it is finished. Determination is using your will power to do something when it isn’t easy. You are determined to meet your goals. Even when it is really hard, or you are being tested, you still keep going.

WHY PRACTICE DETERMINATION?

Without determination, things don’t get done. People give up easily and don’t ask for help when they need it. With determination, even the hardest task becomes a challenge we are willing to accept. We do things that matter in the world. With determination, we can make our dreams come true.

HOW DO YOU PRACTICE DETERMINATION?

Decide what is important to you. Then use your will power to make it happen. Finish what you start. If obstacles come up, deal with them, and get back on track. If you get discouraged or distracted, remember your goal. Ask yourself “What do I need?” Then start again. If feels good to meet your goals!
