Determination is ESSENTIAL to your purpose. PERIOD!
Without determination, it will be absolutely impossible to reach your purpose. Determination is that essential tool that keeps you going when you want to give up and say "It's not worth it." Determination always proposes the question of "How bad do you want it?" A lot of times we want the outcome, but don't want to have to manage WHAT COMES. Plans change, paths no longer the ways you should take, and you have to learn how to work with what comes. Don't get me wrong, it sucks! It is horrible to start off determined and to have a set plan only for it to be changed or halted.
