I believe determination in its purest form stems from "ignited passion".
There is a certain level of confidence and
strength that must be present in order to maintain a determined
disposition. It is not something we can fake. When we are passionate
about something and believe in ourselves enough to move in the direction
of our goals, we can wake up the human will and potential necessary to
achieve our greatest dreams.
I am mesmerized by my son's determination with many things in life, in particular his aptitude and tenacity in sports. He has a quiet confidence about him and a fierce determination that is captivating.
His will to put his all into his sport, whether baseball or hockey,
isn't "put on" or expected of him. This will comes from deep within the
core of who he is. It is unbridled passion.
I am truly intrigued by the seriousness and drive with which he approaches the game. He may
be a little-leaguer, but to him it is important business, and something
he enjoys to the ends of the earth. When he goes up to bat he is
preparing for the big home run; you can see it in his eyes. Whether he
gets that big hit or not, he runs to first base like his pants are on
fire. If he strikes out he doesn't let that dampen his spirits; he goes up to bat the next time with the same fervor and determination.
My point here has less to do with little
league baseball and everything to do with the human spirit and its
amazing capacity to keep pushing forward when things are uncertain or
These three powerful human characteristics can help us view our dreams and passions through a more hopeful determined lens.
The human spirit is strong and resilient, and
can overcome some of the most tragic circumstances. There are countless
stories, historical and current, in which people have faced unthinkable
challenges and yet they carry on. They are somehow willing to tap into
something deep inside themselves that keeps them moving forward. I can't
help but be moved and inspired by this amazing trait we are born with.
It is something we can draw on to overcome adversity and help us reach
Some of the most rewarding learning
experiences in my life have resulted from facing challenges that require
courage and raw determination. For me, it isn't about winning or
losing, or achieving a certain result. It is about refusing to stop in
my tracks at the first sign of fear, and not allowing obstacles to
prevent dreams from becoming
a reality. At the end of the day, it is about finding that inner
strength we all have, and summoning the courage to align it with the
things we are most passionate about.
When we give ourselves permission to ignite
the passion in our lives, and when we believe in ourselves regardless of
the outcome, we give ourselves in turn one of the greatest gifts in life.
What would happen if you gave yourself the gift of looking at what some of your passions are?
