Why Determination is Key to Solving Your Problems

"A determined soul will do more with a rusty monkey wrench than a loafer will accomplish with all the tools in a machine shop." -Robert Hughes

Hear this! Determination is the potent key to unlocking most problems slowing down progress in your business life. Once you resolve to keep things going no matter the odds, sooner than later, you will discover that you achieved all the goals you set for yourself inspite of all the problems you encountered on the way. When you have a job to do, getting that job done is highly dependent on how determined you are to get it done. Getting it done does not depend exclusively on how talented you are, how experienced you are and how much resources you have at your disposal. You may have all these and still fail to get it done if you are not determined enough. With determination, you can easily command enormous energy, intelligence, talent and direction to surmount obstacles. That is why things get to work out in your favor.

When a man is not determined, even if you give him all the equipment, money and the right environment to help solve a problem, he will fail woefully at the job. But a determined person with fewer resources can solve problems better and faster than the person who is not so determined. That is the key. Just think about it. Have you realized that at any point in time, you are either in a problem, heading out of a problem or heading straight into a problem? That there is neither an escape nor a hiding place from life’s problems unless you are dead? That there is absolutely nothing you can do to stop obstacles altogether? Good if you have. The moment you realize this, that is the beginning of your own resolve to stay determined in whatsoever you find yourself doing. That is the surest way to always achieve your goals without fail, obstacles or not.

Get busy right now because…. “No pains, no gains. To get the prize, you must pay the price.”



 

Why You Must Resolve to Always Press On

“The only people who have no obstacles are those in the cemetery.” – Norman Vincent Peale

Whatever you do, you can never make much progress if you do not have a habit of always pressing on no matter the odds. Yes, there will be obstacles. Yes, there will be discouragement here and there. So what? These are to be expected. There is no human endeavor on this planet without commensurate obstacles. Just think about that. Once you are alive, your daily battles with life and living have to do with solving problems and combating obstacles. Just reflect a bit. At any point in time, you are either in a problem, heading out of a problem or heading straight into a problem. There is neither an escape nor a hiding place from life’s problems unless you are dead. There is absolutely nothing you can do to stop obstacles altogether. What works is your ability to conquer and surmount all obstacles that come your way with a firm resolve to get to your destination. That is the mindset of achievers and successful people.

Always press on! Just keep pressing on no matter the obstacles. If giving up is not an option for you, it is possible to always find the will to press on. Come to think of it, why should giving up even be an option? If it is, it shows right from the outset, you were not determined enough to get the thing done. Even if you did not avert your mind to it then, that is exactly why you made giving up one of the options available to you. If and when giving up is not one of the options, you will discover to your greatest amazement that you will get through all the problems at hand and resolve them fully to achieve your goals. That is how things work out when you are determined enough to get things done. Just press on! That’s the way to go.
