Determined purpose

Determination can take what’s impossible and make it happen. Determination can transform obstacles into accomplishments.

To move ahead with determination, you don’t need any special skills or training. All you need is a reason, a reason that, from your perspective, cannot be denied.

Somewhere within your life you have that reason. Somewhere within you, you know that purpose.

It may stay hidden for many years, and then suddenly come to the surface in response to a difficult situation. Or that purpose may start out as a small idea and grow stronger each day until it soon becomes undeniable.

Rock solid determination comes when you look past the concerns and distractions of the moment. The power of determination comes when you think and act from a sense of real, meaningful purpose.

There is most certainly a purpose you are yearning to fulfill. Find it, know it, follow it, and you can change the world.

— Ralph Marston
