Life is hard. The world isn't what it should be. People are broken, and we know it. Becoming a determined man doesn't mean you have to ignore pain. It means replacing casual effort with supernatural strength to persevere in the midst of uncomfortable circumstances. Determination isn't always about succeeding. Sometimes determination means simply surviving, pressing on in the face of what feels like insurmountable obstacles.
