“Determination is the virtue of having a goal in mind or an end in mind and then conquering all obstacles to get to it. It requires maintaining high levels of positive energy for long periods of time. It also relies on remembering and being able to use the abilities you have already developed to get to a goal. The greatest hindrance to determination is traumatic memories because they block the memory channel.
The greatest development of determination comes from a person like you who has overcome the trauma and then opened up the area of determination. Most people who have a lot of determination develop it by reason of the fact that they have a lot of support behind them in the formative years. Support is like a constant reminder of how great you are.” (1008 Dreams & Solutions)
