Virtue of the Week: Determination

You focus your energy and efforts on a task and stick with it until it is finished. Determination is using your willpower to do something when it isn’t easy. You are determined to meet your goals even when it is hard or you are being tested.

With determination we make our dreams come true.

You are practicing determination when you:

– Believe that what you are doing is important,

– Set goals for yourself,

– Stay focused without being distracted,

– Keep going even if it gets difficult,

– Ask for help when you need it, and

– Finish what you started.

Affirmation:

I am determined. I set goals and keep going until I achieve them. I get things done. I stay focused on my purpose.

The Family Connection was established in 2005 by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands as an early-childhood initiative. The mission of TFC is to strengthen the community child care and early education infrastructure in the USVI by building awareness of the importance of early learning and development for success and working with community agencies to promote quality care and education.

One of its efforts is the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities.

The Source supports the Virtues Project. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
