If you find yourself in the midst of a difficult journey and lack the courage to go on, you can always get by with determination instead.
Determination is the mind’s version of courage, which comes from the heart. It is the ability to decide, again and again for as long as the task requires, to put one foot in front of the other, even when you feel too tired to go on.
Determination is your inner red head that knows what it wants and won’t settle for less.
Several effective strategies exist to increase your determination. By focusing on your goal, your desire to achieve it may increase, which strengthens your resolve.
By analyzing the barriers before you in detail and finding ways around them, you can break down the fear that your goal is beyond reach. As resistance decreases, determination rises above it and carries you forward.
Even when you don’t know how to proceed, you can determine to try new avenues such as asking for help or looking up solutions online.
Determination may not offer the motivating power of courage or love, but sometimes it’s enough to get you by until your hope and confidence grow brighter.
