Determination (vs. Faintheartedness)
Overcoming obstacles to reach my goal
To practice Determination I will:
- Set goals.
- Make sure your goals are right.
- Ignore distractions.
- Do not be discouraged by others.
- Face problems head on.
Since the opposite of Determination is Faintheartedness, then Stoutheartedness would be a synonym of Determination. The image of a stouthearted person conjures up someone hunkered down, prepared for battle, ready to do whatever it takes for what they believe in. A Determined person will harness that brute force strength with wisdom to act with purpose and within appropriate boundaries. Determination requires lion-hearted courage when obstacles get in the way. There’s nothing half-hearted about Determination!
This month let Determination motivate you to achieve a worthy goal.
