Maintaining determination

With enough determination, no goal is out of reach. Determination carries you past seemingly insurmountable obstacles and makes things real that were once considered impossible.

So how do you create and maintain sufficient determination to take you where you want to go? How do you keep the power of determination working for you?

To maintain your determination, you simply must remember it. For as powerful as your determination can be, it is nothing more than a concept in your mind.

As long as you can keep that concept of determination at the front of your mind, it will work for you. As long as you can remember, with passion and with clarity, the what, why and how of your determination, it will carry you forward.

When the challenges come, remember that you are determined and you will be. Though your determination won’t solve your problems for you, it can keep you going long enough for you to solve them yourself.

What things in your life do you truly wish to change, to improve, to create, to accomplish, and why? Sincerely answer that question, and you’ll discover plenty of determination within yourself.

Keep that determination in mind as each moment goes by, and you’ll accomplish whatever you choose to accomplish.

— Ralph Marston
