What is DETERMINATION? According to Dictionary.com DETERMINATION is “theactofcomingtoadecisionoroffixingorsettingapurpose.” Just imagine a field of Sunflowers; it took DETERMINATION to grow it! The grower who planted the seeds was determined to plant them, and to tend to them to attain their goal of having a beautiful array of sunny flowers to enjoy. In doing so, they also made the world a sunnier place for others to enjoy. Maybe the grower wasn’t successful with their first attempt, or even their second or third attempt, but if that was the case, their DETERMINATION eventually paid off. When a person decides to be determined about a particular goal or purpose they are telling themselves that they are not planning to stop trying to reach that goal, until they ultimately do reach that goal. Often when a person is determined you will hear them say I’m not going to stop trying until I get it done, or until I get there, or until I make it happen. Being determined isn’t always an easy path to travel, but it is a very gratifying journey when you are successful, and even if you’re not successful, you’re likely to accomplish many other things along the way toward your ultimate goal. A determined person is generally an active person involved in living life every day.
Just imagine how much brighter the would would be if every person decided to have the DETERMINATION to grow into the best person that they can be, and along the way they helped make the world a sunnier place. Not only would every person be happier with their own personal existence, they would also be helping other people that they encounter, and perhaps helping to heal and enhance their little corner of the world each and every day.
Very early in my writing career I decided with very little difficulty what I’d use as my tag line because I knew why I wanted to write. I aspired to inspire people to improve and enhance their lives. So, it was logical that my tag line would read “I Aspire To Inspire”. I wanted to make a difference with my writing, whether it was fiction or non-fiction because it was clear that there were many unhappy, confused people in the world who could benefit from a little inspiration. With that in mind I’ve added a new feature to my blog – Wickedly Wise Inspiration Cards.
I’ll be adding a new card every week and I’d love to send them to you to add a little inspiration to your week. If the idea of receiving a little inspiration at an unexpected moment sounds good to you sign up for my Karma Buzz Newsletter. Or check back often if you need a little inspiration.
