Be determined. It's the key.



Determination:

The resolve to do something,

Determines outcomes.


“Seek and ye shall find”

Sets the standard for success.

Goal in sight? Press on.

      picklesandrufus: Thanks for summing up the summing up. It takes a lot of determination even when the goal is still in sight. Part of it is to keep the goal in sight.

      Determination is a very admirable character trait. I like the words you chose in this Haiku. You summed it up quite well.

      breakfastpop: We writers are good at "talking" the talk, but now we must apply the teaching from the Talmud which says that "The test of a man's life is not his theology, but his life." We must determine what is important to accomplish in our lives, and "Press on" with that goal always in sight, as you just commented.

      Faith Reaper: Seeing the cardiologist tomorrow, the GB surgeon Monday both for consultations. I am feeling better, but I'm doing clear liquids, vitamins, and olive oil with lemon juice to see what I can accomplish with that. I'm not at all anxious to do the heart valve. We are all in the arms of His Love, always.
