If at first you don't succeed..........
Determination is when you try again and again to succeed in what you are trying to achieve or do. To be determined, You must try your best and never give up. If you don't succeed at first in what you are doing, try it over and over again until you get it perfect and how you want it.
If your friend is trying to achieve something, but can't quite get it right, you could help them by saying how they could improve, or tell them to keep trying again and again. If you are not determined in life, you might not be able to do many things, because you would just give up. So if you are determined in what you do, you will go quite far in life.
