  1. Determination
    by David V. Bush


    I'll plan my work and follow it,
    For I'm on victory bent;
    For all the strength and will I need,
    The gods to me have lent.

    I know there's something I can do
    In this great world I'm in!
    The gods give me a vast desire
    To labor and to win.

    I see around me many men
    Who work in skillful way;
    And I affirm God means that I
    Shall do as well as they.

    Of course there's something I can do.
    And do exceeding well;
    I'll find that work and follow it,
    For naught my soul can quell.



  2. Genius And Power
    by Orison Swett Marden


    There is genius and power in persistence.
    It conquers all opposers;
    It gives confidence;
    It annihilates obstacles.
    Everybody believes in the determined man.
    People know that when he undertakes a thing,
    The battle is half won,
    For his rule is to accomplish whatever he sets out to do.



  3. Everybody believes in the determined man


  4. Determination Analogy
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    Through the rock and stone
    Sitting all alone
    A beautiful flower did grow
    Brilliant and very yellow.

    No one cleared the stone away
    The ground was a mess and in array
    But determined to push on through
    That little flower it grew.

    It faced obstacles in the stone
    No one helped, it was all alone
    But the flower found a way around
    It was determined to come above the ground.

    Why can't we be like that flower
    And be determined using our mind power
    We give up too easily when faced with roadblocks
    We say life is hard and full of knocks.

    But if determination was our attitude
    We would have so much more fortitude
    We would find a way
    And roadblocks would not sway!



  5. Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s the determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal ... that will enable you to attain the success you seek.  Mario Andretti


  6. Determined
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


             Deciding what you want to do
       Exploring all the avenues
            Taking time to set your goals
     Examining the pot holes
    Realizing it can be done
     Maybe it won't be all fun
           Instead adjust your attitude
         Never letting go of fortitude
       Enthusiasm can overcome
        Determination is awesome!



  7. Your Determination
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    The choices you make,
    The things that keep you awake
    The willpower you possess
    All determine your success.

    How strong is your passion
    Are you willing to take action?
    Is working your intention
    Do you want to make an impression?

    The most important thing
    Is the determination you bring.
    Knowledge is good
    but determination is like food.

    Your determination will decide
    If you keep your dreams & goals alive.
    Only you can decide
    How you feel inside.

    Be like the dog after a bone
    Be determined even if alone
    Your perseverance will succeed
    And life will rewarding indeed!
