Determination is the leading factor in success. Without it we may never reach our goals. I believe that if you want to succeed at achieving your goals you must have self-determination. Without it, when you reach an obstacle or something holds you back, you may quit and never get past that barrier. Other people have the power to help motivate you to try harder, but in the end you need to be the one to have the determination, drive and dedication to keep going and to continue fighting for your goals.
