It's the lack of determination that makes even the smartest people fail rather than a lack of their strength or knowledge. They don't succeed because they are not strongly admitted one idea and tend to give up easily because of the obstacles they face.
Acquire endless determination to succeed in every aspect of your life. Success is about standing to the decisions you make. Don't fall into the trap of aiming at new targets every time it doesn't work out or your chance of developing one idea into a success will be slim.
You've got to say, "I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it." It's called perseverance.
— Lee Iacocca
Life is less tough for those who train their minds on being strong facing what's ahead of them. Stick to your plans and persevere until they are achieved, and you will get mentally strong to withstand setbacks and failures.
You can't evade falling down and getting discouraged, but you can challenge yourself to continue whenever everyone else has just quitted. It's your determination that will take your hands and help you get up and continue.
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.
Here are 7 tips for endless determination and perseverance to succeed in achieving your goals. I hope they boost your positive energy for greater satisfaction.
1. Believe in Yourself
No one will do it for you. Instead, many people may see you are incapable of going far. It's because they cannot imagine you into the success costume.
Let me tell you the secret that has led to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity.
Your confidence in your abilities will be your fueling power to continue. You will have to believe you can go further to go beyond your beliefs.
Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.
2. Take risks and don't be afraid to fail
Don't be scared to go further, so that will gain enough experience of overcoming what's coming into your way. You will get defeated and fail times and times until you learn to be firm.
You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.
You will adapt to getting rejected and standing up quickly without doubting the process. Perseverance starts after this point when everyone else has admitted the defeat.
Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.
3. keep and keep trying
The only way to fail is to stop. The opposite of stopping is to keep on trying. Keep in mind that it's not easy for anyone and especially for you who have big dreams.
Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down.
—Charles F. Kettering
Try more until the closed doors open and the solutions pop up on your mind. Only continuing will help you get ideas and answers.
Quitting will get you to the starting point again or to a new road of the unknown that you will have to begin from scratch with new challenges you must overcome too.
Don’t be discouraged. It’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.
4. Focus on the future with your goals in mind
Have goals and watch your every step and count your progress on the way to reaching that goal. It becomes your inspiration to go on when it's hard on you. Your goal will become your dearest treasure and you will do everything to make it become possible.
The difference between the difficult and the impossible is that the impossible takes a little longer time.
Focus on the future because it holds the beautiful outcomes you are looking for. Concentrate on what's coming and be prepared for it. Don't look back for so long unless for an understanding of the lesson.
I am a slow walker, but I never walk back.
5. Be grateful
You wouldn't be here if you were not determined enough to thrive for more. You wouldn't care to stop if you weren't ambitious enough to dream big. Are you grateful for that?
Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.
Many people don't have dreams and just live to eat, sleep, and then die. Be grateful that God has made you looking for the best and aiming for higher than where you are.
Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.
When you are grateful, you will gain more confidence in your dreams and your perseverance will be boosted. Be grateful because you need to love yourself more and your dreams more and more. And, be grateful because you are really progressing well and learning how to get up after each strong fall.
6. Be proud of where you are
In a person's big dream, one step close is like climbing the highest mountains because it reflects the hard work and effort. Be positive about yourself and your plans.
Adversity, and perseverance, and all these things can shape you. They can give you value and self-esteem that are priceless.
No matter how slow you are how late you may feel, you still go through a journey to learn new lessons and meet new people along the road.
All that I have achieved has been possible not only because of my own strength and perseverance, gained through hardship but also through other people's support and belief in me.
As long as you are going, you should celebrate each milestone achieved. It will lift your spirits for achieving more. Be proud of your determination not to give in to your weakness. You are strong and you are competent.
7. Never give up
Fail times and times and get up again onto your feet to pick up what's remained to start over again. Your will to reach it will move you forward to it. Never give up no matter how many times you fall.
If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.
Don't give up because you will not settle for staying low. You will not be satisfied with being down there while others are flying high.
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.
