Determination will take you where you want to go. High achievers are people who hold onto their goals and their determination. They have learned to overcome discouragement, doubt and other obstacles.

Florence Nightingale spent her life determined to upgrade hospital standards. She would transform a hospital from a “place to die” to a “place of healing and renewed hope.” Although she experienced her own physical sickness and limitations during her adult years, she never quit. Nightingale launched a medical revolution from her bed and lived to the ripe age of 90. Someone once said, "All things are difficult before they become easy." Nightingale pressed through every difficult place with determination. The world is better today because she was determined in her efforts.

What area do you need to press through with great determination? Hold onto your goal and go forward. Let your determination be used to change the world into a better place!
