A short post on Determination

There are a number of “things” in this world which drives a being to success or to glory. Hunger, curiosity, love, respect, greed, sadism, dutifulness to name a few are different forces which drive a being to success. This is the fuel for us. But what is the thing which keeps the fuel burning? Determination.

Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.

Mario Andretti

Determination is the matchstick which fires up the fuel, which brings the heat to our needs and which keeps us running.

Determination is the key to success. It is strong will power characterized by unwavering concentration, ever increasing longing and discontinuous effort to achieve one’s goal.

Determination is not like will power. Determination can be seen. Will Power is not always seen. It can be for the good or for the bad, but is always seen.

To achieve something, one needs the fire in his belly. And cannot achieve much without it. You can only start the fire by wanting more, by counting your failures, by not being disheartened by failure and be inspired by anything and everything.

When you get the fire burning, there is only one extinguisher and it is hopelessness. So make sure you are not losing hopes. A person without hope is like life without colour.

So Dream Well, Aim higher, and have strong hopes so that your determination does not fade.
