“Power of Determination and Achieving Your Goals” written by Mike Marko.
Have you recently come upon obstacles in achieving your goals?
I get it. It’s pretty common for everyone.
In fact: if you don’t come upon obstacles that means you are not trying hard enough to achieve your goals.
And that’s where the power of determination comes into play, and what I’m going to talk about today.
The Power of Determination
The following video talks about the power of determination.

I’m sure you already know (especially if you have read other articles in this blog) that taking action is key if you want to achieve your goals, dreams, and desires.
But in order to make sure you keep taking action, develop is persistence and really the power of determination.
Roadblocks and Challenges
On your way to achieving your goals and ultimate success, you will come across roadblocks, hardships, and challenges.
Trust me, you’ll want to quit.
You’ll want to give up.
You’ll want to just do something else.
So if you really want success, then the one quality that will guarantee your success is the power of determination. You need to be able to see it through to the end, and to refuse to settle for anything less than your dream.
Remember: You only fail when you give up.
Are You Willing to Pay the Price?
Reaching your goals requires some level of sacrifice.
That may mean everything in life on hold in favor of working toward your dreams, investing all of your savings, or giving up a few hours of sleep each night.
A lot of people say they want to achieve their goals, and talk the talk… but they aren’t willing to pay the price it takes to make their dreams a reality.
Let’s look at the example of an Olympic swimmer. They will get up super early every day to train. They will swim a couple times a day, weight train, and be on a super strict diet. And there is no guarantee they will win: yet they train and train, and keep at it until they finally do. They pay the price for their success.
Know the Price
But before you can choose to pay the price, you need to know what the price is. This could take some investigation. Look into what the costs other people have had to pay to achieve dreams similar to yours. This could mean interviewing people to discover the sacrifices they had to make along the way.
In your research you could find that some costs are more than you want to pay. Only you can decide what is right for you and what price you are willing to pay.
If the price is something YOU are WILLING to pay, then you need to commit. Commit yourself to achieving your dream, no matter what it takes. Your willingness and desire to do whatever is needed will help give you the power of determination and helps you persevere in the face of challenges, setbacks, and pain.
Setsbacks Are Inevitable
“No plan survives contact with the enemy.” – Correlli Barnett
Now you probably aren’t going to battle, but in this case “the enemy” is the disappointments, setbacks, and failure along the way to your ultimate success. Sometimes it will seem like overwhelming odds. At other times, you’ll feel like your commitment to the goal you’re pursuing is being tested.
Adversity is a great teacher. It gives you the opportunity to develop your power of determination.
Whenever you come up to an obstacle or run into a roadblock, come up with at least three ways to get around it, over it, or through it. There are always several ways that will work, but in order to find them, you must first look for them.
Final Thoughts On The Power of Determination
The longer you stick with it, the greater the chance that you will make your breakthrough. It doesn’t matter how difficult it may seem: the longer you persist, the more likely your success will be.
