As a child, my dad never failed to make us understand the value of self-determination to succeed.
He would sit us down and advise us to take up an idea, think about it, dream of it, live the idea and make it happen. These have stuck with me for many years now and they have practically become a part of me, because I have learnt to live my idea as each given day passes.
When we talk about idea he never failed to emphasize on positive and productive idea that would only sprout positive growth, success and happiness. In accordance, he made us understand that negative ideas will only yield pain, sorrows, hardship and in most cases death at the end.
Following his footsteps, he never failed to be a role model up until date and this is one of my biggest motivation to success.
I believe success comes to those who merit it and one of the ways to which one can achieve success is through determination. According to Ramandeep Kaur “If we have determination and willpower for one defined goal in life then nothing can stop us to achieve success.”
I sincerely agree with the words of Kaur, determination is a catalyst to success. I believe in life one thing is clear, your achievement depends on the goal you have defined for yourself and your determination is what pushes you to work towards that goal.
It is important to note that the journey of life isn’t smooth, there are failures along the path, but then these failures are meant to be lesson for the future.
Lack of self-determination causes setback, because it is a hurdle on the way to success. When an individual lacks self-determination he tends to crib a lot, almost over everything around him. At this point procrastination becomes the best route to figure things out. Sincerely, a lot of us suffer this and the only way for us to get out of this is to improve our mindset on determination.
Determination is a simple practice but then all it requires is consistency and self-discipline. This is because as human we tend to lose track of ourselves and our plan. We fall out and then realize when things are already messed up. However, when we discipline our mind, body, soul and all that needs to be disciplined we tend to gradually put things in place.
Define your success, set your goals and develop strategies to achieve them. genuinely, I know it is hard to accomplish things, even when you’re determined, but then your ability to persevere and remain true to your dreams aid self-determination.
Learn to work within your strength, avoid distractions and remain committed to your goal. Try to create personal and positive values that will positively impact yourself determination.
Also keep in mind that your every action should be oriented towards your goal, and to achieve this remember to keep a positive mindset.
Consider failures as the hurdles but not the full stop on the way to success. If you keep moving in the right direction with a positive mindset and remain very determined, you will come out as a winner. Failure cannot overtake you if you are determined enough.
“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand,” said Vince Lombardi an American football player and coach.
