Determination Defined defines determination as "the quality of being resolute; firmness of purpose."
Let me illustrate determination for you. This guy jumped out of the pool and decided to head for a walk.
Notice he has no shoes on.
These little piggies were fused together at birth. Thanks to the skill of Dr. Fearon he has five little sensitive piggies on each foot. He came to the rocks and he kept going.

This is the face of determination. I could tell by the look on his face
and very slow pace that he was in pain BUT he was not going to quit. As he gingerly stepped his way through the rocks, he fell and skinned his knee.
I thought surely he would stop and let me carry him back to the sidewalk.
He persisted.
He made it halfway across the rocks before he asked me to carry him back to the pool.
That's determination.
