THE POWER OF DETERMINATION
September 09, 2019
Determination is the firmness of purpose, will, or intention to get desired result. The power of determination rekindles the heart of perseverance. The power of determination energizes our steadiness and propels us to pursue our dreams despite difficulties or setbacks in life. The power of determination took Isaac to his Rehoboth. He dug wells four times at different locations before he finally got to a place where they did not strive with him again Genesis 26:18-22.
Abraham Lincoln is one of the most famous failures with a high influential personality. He was born into poverty; he faced with many defeats in his lifetime. He lost eight elections, twice failed in business and also suffered a nervous failure. He could have quit many times, but he did not and because he did not quit, he became one of the greatest presidents in the history of United State of America. He was determined to make it in life despite being enveloped with failures.
Mr. Smith, one of the US most prominent African-American philanthropists grew up in a primarily black neighbourhood in Denver, Colorado. When he was a high school student, he applied for an internship at a scientific development company, Bells Labs, but was told that he was too young. Because of the power of determination, he reportedly continued calling the company every week for five months until he was accepted. He later went on to study Chemical Engineering at Cornel University in upstate New York and later received his MBA from Columbia University. He later got a job in San Francisco at Goldman Sachs, where he began working with technology companies Apple and Microsoft, among others. He left Goldman Sachs and founded Vista in the year 2000. He is the chief executive of the company and the value of the company stands at $46bn.
Dreams can only be achieved through perseverance, determination and diligence. Success is achieved through extraordinary determination. That is why you must never quit in the pursuit of your dreams. Winner never quits, quitter never wins. It takes the power of determination to bring your dreams to reality.
