Finding Determination


Visitors: 208

Determination is what gets us through life; it is what makes the difference between failure and success and how we make out in whatever we choose to do be it at work or in relationships. If you wish to succeed in life then all you need is determination and a strong character and you will be able to achieve virtually whatever you want to achieve in life. However, some of us seem to have more determination than others, for some it seems to come so very easy while for others we often feel as though we were left out when determination and will power were handed out. This is far from untrue and all you need is to look deep down inside yourself and give a tug and draw that side out, we all have it but some of us just hide it deep inside.

Drawing out determination

If you want to draw out your determination and be like others who are not afraid of facing anything or anyone, then it really isn’t all that hard. Setting goals and using such techniques as affirmations can help you get a long way in becoming more determined and more self-confident in life. A lack of self-confidence is generally what holds many of us back when it comes to going out and doing something different or trying to learn a new skill or conquer a fear. It is all a matter of bringing your confidence to the forefront and beating the shy side of your nature.

Ask yourself what you could lose by pushing yourself that little bit harder and going for something. The worst that could happen is that you wouldn’t at first succeed. But if you don’t succeed at first and there are many who don’t, then simply cast this aside and worry not about it and try again, only this time go about it a completely different way. There is no failure in trying something and having to go about it a different way, change course, there can only be failure if you give in and stop trying. This is the only time when you can fail and this you should always remember and tell yourself in moments of doubt.

When trying to bring out determination you should of course start off with an easy task. Maybe something you have been putting off for a while, it could be something in your personal life, at work, or something you wish to better about yourself such as learn a new hobby or skill. Whatever it is pick a time when you will start or attempt whatever it is you want and mark it off on the calendar with a big bold circle. As the time draws closer keep repeating affirmations that you can do this, you will be successful, stay focused and determined on a positive outcome and when the day comes just go for it. Always remember that you have got nothing to lose by trying but everything to gain by sticking with your newfound determination.
