Determination can have many different definitions to many unique individual perspectives. However, to a person like myself, determination means to devote my heart and soul to one or many things in my life that I wish to strive in the future. Even though I have struggled with keeping myself dedicated and discipline when attempting to devote myself towards the task, the determination of always wanting to improve and be the best that I can be never changes. I agree that dedication and discipline is a big part of being determined, and without it individuals would not be able to teach themselves self-discipline, therefore, not being able to keep yourself determined to your task. I will admit that self-discipline has been a big time struggle for me and I do tend to occasionally become complacent or “lazy”. This experience of struggling to be self-discipline has taught me that in life, you don’t ever receive anything, you always have to get up and work for it. Nonetheless, life is a learning experience and for someone like myself I have learned from my mistakes and I have improved on being more self-discipline by creating schedules for myself to keep motivated and more and more determined each and every day. The word determination means a lot to me because it has gotten me where I am today. I have achieved many things I am truly proud about, however, I would have never been able to achieve them with out keeping myself discipline, motivated, dedicated and most important of all determined.
