It is not about battling the outside world with force to bend to our will, but not allowing the interruptions and hurdles of life take you off course for too long.
This is how stability is created, goals achieved and changes are made. Say you started a quest or a task and you set out to complete it. Determination is the fuel. If you start to run out of fuel and begin to lose steam, know that it is okay to stop the task at hand to regenerate and renew.
To renew is to strengthen the back bone again, because without that you would be acting without strength or deep value for the task at hand. Sometimes you need a break away from something to fall back in love with it. Determination is that which has you pick up where you left off again.
