Determination: The quality of being determined to do or achieve something; 
Deciding or controlling something's outcome or nature. 

Yesterday I saw this news report, Homeless Man hands out resume. This man is homeless and is looking for work. Instead of just sitting around and feeling sorry for himself he is putting extra effort into his job search by handling out his resume to people driving in Downtown L.A.

I was especially touched by this story because this man moved from NY (where he was employed) to L.A. to be close to his daughter. While living in L.A. he never found work. The fact that this man would move across the country to be near his daughter speaks volumes of his character.

I hope his efforts pay off and he finds work. I think his is a good example of the word determination.
