This page is a collection of Determination Quotes.
Being determined is a decision and it's available to each of us. Without
deciding you will often find yourself waiting for events, other people,
or circumstances to direct your efforts. Determination will give you
purpose and put you in the drivers seat.
The next time you're starting a new project or attempting to reach a
goal take a minute to make the decision that you will accomplish it.
Make a determined effort and allow yourself to go after it. If you start
to fail or come up with excuses, remember your decision. Remember the
promise you made to yourself.
Being determined and staying with
something when it gets difficult bears the greatest gifts of
accomplishment. Each time you act in this way you are establishing a
precedent for success. And each success build upon the previous one.
