You focus your energy and effort on a task and stick with it until it is finished. Determination is using your will power to do something when it is not 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 what you are doing is important
Set goals for yourself
Stay focused without being distracted
Keep going if it gets difficult
Ask for help when you need it
Finish what you start
I am determined. I set goals and keep going until I achieve them. I get things done. I stay focused on my purpose.
The "Wild Horse" perfectly defines the "Virtue of Determination". The stallion and other horses in this video do not give up the fight to be free and to live out their lives in "Freedom". It is a hard reality of what the horses experience during a roundup as such. They do not want to be seperated and pulled apart from other herd members and will fight some times to death, to remain free. Pure, honest and authentic as this is the"Nature of the Horse".
Children do have a "voice" and care about wild horses.We invite you to review our top stories from our 1st International Writing Competition - Subject Wild Horses inspired by "Atticus - the Wild Stallion from Deadman, British Columbia, Canada.
