In every success story, the longest chapter is the one about determination. While success demands many things from us, willpower and determination always come up at the top of the list. Many people believe that we are born with determination and those that succeed are simply the fortunate ones who are born with an abundant supply. But if you ask any successful person they will tell you they were not born with more determination; they always found a way to harness and use what they have more effectively. So, Before you go to sleep, make some basic decisions about what you will do tomorrow, such as what you will wear, what you will eat for lunch, and the route you will take to work. Get after the hardest job right away while you are still fresh and have the energy. Keep in mind that majority of situations that do come up to distract us are not emergencies and do not require us to respond right away. Take a quick break when working on something if you feel your energy fading. Create a vision board, a mind movie, or some system that serves as a constant reminder of what you are working toward.
Where there is a will, there is a way. If there is a chance in a million that you can do something, anything, to keep what you want from ending, do it. Pry the door open or, if need be, wedge your foot in that door and keep it open. Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment.
