Determination - LBC Post

This week's LBC topic DETERMINATION was thrown into the ring!  Now why did I do that?  No idea what prompted me to suggest this topic.  But I'm going to post on it anyway in my usual fashion.  I'm writing a book, doing some editing work from home  and running a couple of book blogs as we speak as well as taking care of home and kids, so this is my 'speed post' type of post  - a downloaded photo on the subject of DETERMINATION and a tweet-sized definition of the topic according to me.  So here we go.  Well, the photo on the right shows some Chinese athletes running determinedly towards the finishing point.  I guess you really can't get more determined than that.

Determination is the complete application of one's will in pursuit of a definable goal without  any intention of accepting defeat in mind.

I guess that just about defines it.

I dedicate this post to the members of our blogging group the LBC (links in sidebar) and to all our readers.  Thanks to All-Free Download for the photo and to Lettercount for counting my characters at 138 which puts my 'tweet' at just two characters less the the tweet maximum.


  1. And I am determined to hold you to your commitment to complete the graduation.

  2. Ah, I see where I'm going wrong now. Although I work towards what I hope to achieve I'm easily distracted. 'Complete application' is usually lacking in my efforts.

  3. You back at the studying again? May determination get you through!

  4. I don't see too many Chinese running, but the women in my neighborhood dance every day for exercise. Sometimes it is ballroom dance, sometimes they dance with a fan in one hand. Sometimes they dance with a teacher standing in front. I've never joined them. They will probably outlive me.

  5. You "got it" Maria. Tunnel vision is a generic term for determination, 'cause that's what it takes to cross the finish line.

  6. You, Maria, determined? Why, you could knock me over with a feather, LOL. If there was an accurate life definition of determined available, it would give the definition and then say, "See gaelikaa!"
