Determination

To succeed in life, you have to be determined and focused on what you want to achieve. Determination is being firm on your end goal. A determined person knows exactly where he or she is on the road to success. A determined person knows where he or she wants to go and has developed a strategy of how and when to reach his or her objective.

Determination definitely is a motivator. Determination or firmness of purpose will motivate you to move forward to success as you clearly know where you are going. Lewis Carroll made the statement, “ If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.”

With determination, all is possible. When you have tenacity, there is not a no for an answer. Every no is one step closer to the yes. Every failure is one step closer to success. No matter what we go through, our attitudes are… “I will persist until I succeed. Nothing will get in my way. I am determined to have great success. Nothing is going to stop me. I’m going to make it happen. I will never give up.”

When struggles come our way, we will always see some light in the tunnel to guide us through and we understand that every challenge has a silver lining. We must do everything we can. We have to work our hardest, and we have to stay positive. Good things happen when we do that.

Determined people certainly do have a lot of faith. Successful people realize they have to have faith, they are not alone, and they are receiving guidance along the way. It’s important that each of us believe in ourselves. We have to have faith in our capacity to succeed.

Some of the qualities we find in people that have determination are the following:

-They focus on what they have rather than what they don’t have.

We call this attitude of gratitude. They know where their blessings come from and they don’t take anything for granted.

-They live and express gratitude for what they have.

They understand that being blessed comes with responsibility. They look to help others. They define this through their everyday living—blessed to be a blessing.

-No matter what, they remain optimistic.

Even though they may be going through a difficulty, they are committed not to stay there. They are determined to improve and go to a higher level.

Understand you will be confronted with many challenges and failures as you march to your world of success. What will make a difference in your journey is your determination to succeed. With your determination, you will be in position to overcome all challenges. The road to success is paved with failures. The road to success is always under construction.

Success does not just happen out of nowhere. It comes with a strategy to succeed. Determined people apply the success formula as they march to success. It takes a positive mindset, vision, a plan, belief, and action.

Determination is a major key to success. Be determined and go for it.

Have an awesome week!
