When used with a verb, the に is grammatically correct, but is often omitted in speech:
あなたやる
じゅうぶん
十分
わかった
I completely understand your determination.
じゅうぶん can also be used on its own:
もう
じゅうぶん
十分

That's enough!
じゅうぶん is typically written in kanji as either 十分 or 充分. Both are correct, and equally common, but 充分 is somewhat preferable as there is no danger of confusing it with
じっぷん
十分
(ten minutes).
The other common way to express enough of something is with the verb
りる (to be enough). Other than the usage difference arising from the fact that 足りる is a verb, 足りる is typically only used to describe something physical or concrete, whereas 充分 can be used more figuratively.
