Determination

Be Determined

You can often change your circumstances by changing your attitude. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

An unshakeable determination is an attitude.  It’s an energy that you choose and decide to own.  It means you recommit yourself each day to your goal, with a belief that is so strong that nothing will stop you from accomplishing what you set out to do.  No one can distract you, you accept no excuses from yourself, and no one can talk you out of it.

How do we develop unshakeable determination?

Set your mind in a positive optimistic direction.  No matter what comes your way make a decision to be optimistic when thinking and speaking.  Our thoughts and words shape our attitude and the only way to be determined is to deliberately be positive and optimistic.  It’s not denying any reality you may be walking through, it’s deciding that you are going to approach your circumstances in a positive and optimistic way. By practicing this, you increase your confidence and self-esteem.

You need to take positive, forward moving action.  Do something every day that will move you forward towards your goal.  No matter how small, it still counts.   Every choice we make is moving us in a direction, be aware and analyze your choices.

Do your best and never give up.  We are not going to be able to force results.  So, just decide to do and be your best, and let God handle the results.  This is trust, this is acceptance.   When you get to the point that you are able to say, and really believe, “I am doing the best I can, I am blooming where I am planted, I am going to be happy and in peace right where I am, and I am going to allow every thing to unfold”  you are increasing your faith and trust.  You are saying that you are taking ownership of everything that is in your control, and allowing life to handle the rest.  That is unshakeable determination.  Never give up.

So, remember, we have only one day at a time to live, so let’s live this day consciously and deliberately and let’s choose well!
