When someone is seen as being "determined", they are seen to have "resolve". If you look at the word "determination", you see the word "termination". Both "termination" and "resolve" refer to "completing" something or "an ending". When we say we are "determined" or that we have "determination", we are saying that we will take something to its full completion. We will stick to it until it is done. Determination doesn't mean that we will only stay with it until it gets hard or difficult or boring or uncomfortable or when we lose interest in it. Determination keeps going when we want to stop. Determination doesn't feel. Determination keeps going when we don't feel like we can keep going. When we have a hard conversation with someone and we are willing to stay engaged until we find a resolution, then that is determination. When we find ourselves in a situation where most people quit or give up, determination is a tool in our toolbox that we use to help us finish the job. Determination is what helps us persevere when others quit.
