  1. Determination We Need
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Without determination,
    No goal is complete
    Without focus, you will
    Find defeat.

    Though it's hard and
    Can be overwhelming
    You must keep going and
    Control your feeling.

    Determination keeps us on track,
    Won't give up even under attack.
    Finding ways around
    What appears to be a dead end

    No one can take away
    This drive to succeed
    For determination is always
    What we need.

  3. Determination
    Poet: 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.

  8. 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!

    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Deciding what you want to do
    Exploring all the avenues
    Taking time to set your goals
    Examining the potholes

    Instead, adjust your attitude
    Never letting go of fortitude
    Enthusiasm can overcome

  12. 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!

  14. What Makes Success
    by Unknown

    What makes one man succeed where another fails?
    Naturally ability has something to do with it.

    Environment may be a help.
    But every man who has made his mark
    will tell you that the chief factors are energy,
    confidence, indefatigable toil, readiness to learn,
    a determination which never relaxes its grip.

    And if so, why should you not succeed as well as some one else?
    What is there out of these qualities that you may not cultivate?

    Most of us have ability enough,
    if we will add to it the push and hard work and
    determination without which talent is helpless.

  18. Determination
    Poet: John Kendrick Bangs

    What I will must surely be;
    What I wish for I shall see;
    What I'd have must come to me —
    If I will and wish aright,
    And keep at it day and night
    Till at last it heaves in sight,
    And, according to my habit,
    I"ve the nerve to go and grab it!
