“Determination and perseverance move the world thinking that others will do it for you is a sure way to fail.” Marva Collins
Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen. Goals determine what you’re going to be.We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference, and that a small group of determined people can change the course of history.
Crystallize your goals. Make a plan for achieving them and set yourself a deadline. Then, with supreme confidence, determination and disregard for obstacles and other people’s criticisms, carry out your plan. The question isn’t who is going to let me it’s who is going to stop me. Determination is the wake-up call to the human will. The person who really wants to do something finds a way the other finds an excuse. There is no chance, no destiny, no fate that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul. Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they stick together.
“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.” Mahatma Gandhi
Strength is a matter of the made-up mind.Success is a ladder you cannot climb with your hands in your pockets. The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person’s determination.The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication. The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win.People begin to become successful the minute they decide to be. Nothing great will ever be achieved without great men, and men are great only if they are determined to be so.It is a rough road that leads to the heights of greatness.
The day you take complete responsibility for yourself, the day you stop making any excuses, that’s the day you start to the top.You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them. Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do. The minute you start talking about what you’re going to do if you lose, you have lost. Set your goals high, and don’t stop until you get there. You can become a winner only if you are willing to walk over the edge. If you can believe it, the mind can achieve it. The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before. You have to perform at a consistently higher level than others. That’s the mark of a true professional. Concentration is the ability to think about absolutely nothing when it is absolutely necessary. The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary. The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can’t do. There are only two options regarding commitment. You’re either IN or you’re OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between. Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there. Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance.
He who stops being better stops being good.
