Determination enables you to create a better life. It is the sail that is drawn to the winds of change.
Determination as Mr. Webster defines it, is perseverance. This is one quality for success. It means never giving up, no matter how hard the task is. It means to start something and to finish it. People with this trait aim on something and they continue to look at it, work hard for it, no matter how exhausting, how nerve-racking, and how difficult the tasks may be. They aim high for their goals and the rich rewards that wait for them when it is accomplished.
Phobias are not ordinary fears. These are something that could be psychological or non-psychological in nature. The latter is more severe than the former as it affects the person physically. In normal growth and development, it is during the toddler and preschool years when children learn about fears. They develop fear of dark as they imagine that there might be something lurking in the dark, inside their closets or under their beds. They fear strangers, dentists, and other things, particularly those who are ugly. They fear certain animals as well, especially those bigger than them. This is all because they have great imagination. Phobias could have developed during this stage or in the stages after. Certain facts relate that phobias are caused a particular experience with the phobic object. For example, fear of the dog could be because the person was chased by a dog before that almost got him killed or bitten. Fear of flying could have stemmed from witnessing a plane crash or surviving one. Though these are not really the same for every person, truth remains that there is something, which occurred that made them stay away. The person may or may not even remember it anymore.
When a person is suffering from phobias, he would have a hard time when exposed to the feared object. Usual symptoms would be similar to a severe form of anxiety where there would be palpitations, sweating, labored breathing, and inability to concentrate. Their body would also be tensed and trembling. And all of these would be minimized once the phobic object is removed from the vicinity. If the phobic object is therefore, close by and the person would encounter it everyday, then it would really be hard for him to cope, unless he decides to seek treatment.
Determination is important, especially for people with phobias or irrational fears, who decide to proceed with treatment. Treatments for such disorders entail a variety of therapies through counseling with a trained professional, and of course, some medications to lessen the anxiety. Before the treatments start, they are informed about the things which will occur during sessions and on what are the things to expect. They are informed that the process would probably be hard for them, since they will be gradually exposed to their phobic objects, but then they have to try their best. It is important that they realize how important these sessions are for them to achieve complete healing from their phobias and gain back their life.
