That Lane to success is never easy to walk through. Life tries its best to keep us away from our dreams by throwing tantrums at every curve we take. If we are passionate enough about getting to our destination we will definitely build-up that determination to get there. A determined mind takes us closer to our destination. Success comes to those who have adapted the never quitting attitude in life.
“I will!” and then stick to it–
That’s the only way to do it. Nixon Waterman,
This is determination.
“Imagine, dream, and believe in yourself. With determination and belief, you will be surprised at what you accomplish,” says Byron Pulsifer.
But there is one truth we all are aware of, that not everyone is born with a determined mind. And with this comes another undeniable fact is that we can get it by training our mind.
Why not opt for the second fact.
We can become anything if we really want to; all you need is to feed our minds with the needed determination and focus.
How to keep that perseverance on?
Do not lose faith in yourself. Because what you are today, was something that you aspired to be once.
And what you are tomorrow depends on how determined you are.
It isn’t at all east to keep on going without any positive results. We feel like quitting, it is only the faith we have in ourselves that will help us hold on to our dreams. We need to build that faith.
Don’t let focus aster away from the goal. If we keep that belief in ourselves, our goal and our plans, we will get there for sure. We need to keep ourselves motivated if we want that determination.
Let not obstacles and failures end the journey. Find a way to climb over them or pave a way through it, but never stop. Failures don’t mean stop, it means, gets up look back, learn from the mistakes and move on… don’t forget what Billy Graham had said…
Each life is made up of mistakes and learning, waiting and growing, practicing patience and being persistent.
Don’t let other’s opinions affect us. Nobody can or has the right to determine a destination for us. Don’t cease to dream just because no one believes in you. It is your dream; you have to walk through all the hardships that come with it. So get up and get going, your destination is waiting for you to come and conquer. Why worry about something which is not in our hands. We cannot control any one’s thoughts.
The positivity in you will help you get to the set destination. Don’t let the negative thought take over the mind.
“Can I make it?”
“Things are not at all going my way.”
“I have been trying my best, but why am I not getting there?”
These questions might give you panic, making you doubt your decision.
Don’t ever water these thoughts….instead question them back “if not me who else ?”
“I had dreamt to get it not to forget it.”
“This is not the destination. I will take this to the end no matter what.”
These doubts within you are actually the outer voice influencing you. Don’t ever let such thought creep into your mind.
We must learn to ignore our own questioning voices.
Flip the pages back to the days where you had set a goal for yourself. Keep reminded of the day that you have set an aim. This helps you keep your determination intact. Even if you get a little distracted turn back and recall those dreams you had started with. This is the best way to get that confidence and belief back.
Just there sitting and dreaming will never land you to your goal, you have to get up and walk to it.
Why walk? Why not run?
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. This quote by Lao-Tzu explains it the best way why walk and not run.
It all begins with that single step you take, and yes it the collection of many such steps takes us to the desired destination.
Success is never at once, it is, in fact, a series of smaller success together. Each step takes us closer to the goal, all we need is to be persistent with our walk. Rushing into anything will never give you the best result. Take a step at a time, because every small step count.
Never forget Angela Atkinson’s words … “Be patient. Small actions can result in enormous changes, but it can take time to reap the rewards.” It is not possible to plan out something today, initiate tomorrow and get that success day after.
Celebrate your every win. Be it small or big ones never forget to celebrate your achievement. This will help you realize your progress.
“Don’t let obstacles stand in your way… develop the inner attitude of patience, persistence, and perseverance; and, defeat your own procrastination through action not dreaming.” Catherine Pulsiferr
A determined mind will never sway away from its aim, no matter what adversities it is made to face.
