The strength to rise each day, the courage to step out, and resilience to fight all the way through, are all tied to the hopes and dreams upon which the heart is fixed. When the body gets weak and the soul is confused, the spirit of what is sought after drives the man on.
What is your dream? What are your hopes? That is the beginning of determination. Are you reaching for anything?
And if you are, then get over your despair, buckle your shoes and step out. Let the spirit of your desires drive you. Step by step, on and on, height upon height, keep going. You are better than you think you are, you can do more than you know you can, and you will go higher than you feel you will.
