Motivation Monday: Determination

Wow it’s been a whole week since I’ve managed to get time to myself and get to my laptop.  It’s been one of those weeks where everything keeps coming and just when you manage to get a handle on things even more is thrown at you.

None the less I got through the week, a little bit tired and still having plenty to do.  Which in turn got me thinking about what “determination” can really do for us as a whole.  Determination is closely associated with resilience: the ability to bounce back from our setbacks, rather than giving up.

And when it comes down to the crunch, who is our toughest opponent we’ll ever face? That’s right it’s ourselves!  If we can keep ourselves focused and determined to see things through, there is literally nothing we cannot achieve.

Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is. – Josey Wales
