How to Be Determined? How to Get What You Want?

  • In this world we live in, every single one of us walks around with a purpose. We all have a dream of sorts, waiting to be accomplished. But the truth is, the world is harsh, and we end up not always achieving our goals. It is common sense for someone to wonder why try and find the solution to a problem we have yet to understand even exists. But the answer is simple; it always has been. We just don’t seem to try enough. I know it’s rough hearing that you are not good enough, that the way you are, you cannot achieve your dreams and goals, but it is true. The reason is not that you are not talented enough or smart enough, but you are not determined enough. Determination and self-discipline are a couple of fancy words you’ll have probably heard sometime in your life, and for a good reason.  So, to help you boost your determination and become more self-disciplined, we have provided you with these ten simple tips that you should implement in your everyday life.

The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination.

Believe You Can Do It

  • The first step in achieving any goal comes from within yourself. If you are engulfed by self-doubt, you are bound to sabotage yourself before you have even begun. You need to change your mindset and start believing in yourself. No matter how awkward or strange that dream of yours is, you must think you can achieve it; then you can start working on it.

The path to success is to take massive, determined action.

Baby Steps

  • A significant determination killer is trying to achieve too much at once. Once a big load of work appears before your eyes, it is only reasonable to get intimidated, afraid, and eventually, unmotivated. So, an effortless and effective way to deal with this issue is to break down your goal into smaller, more attainable objectives. This has two significant advantages. One is that it gives you a sense of accomplishment; checking out that little box on your to-do list becomes exceptionally satisfying, addicting even, making you want to achieve even more things on that list just to tick the following box so you can get that rush of excitement. Before you know it, you’re out of little boxes to check, you’ve made it, you’re there. The second advantage is that if you break down your goal, you can see all the different minor “parts of the machine” you need to focus on, making it easier to allocate your resources, thus making it easier to achieve your goal and making you more determined to succeed.

Don't wish for it. Work for it.

Challenge Yourself Every Single Day

  • There is a physics term I’ve come to like over the past few years called Inertia. Basically, Inertia is the resistance of an object to change its state of motion, meaning that a body that is not moving tends to stay at rest. On the contrary, a body that is in movement tends to remain in motion. What I’m trying to explain here is simple. Always be on the move. You should continuously find something to do to bring you closer to your goal; always try to be ticking your little boxes on the to-do list. If you get going, it gets harder and harder to stop. But, if you get lazy or complacent, that’s the start of your demise; it will be a downward spiral that is hard to come out of, eventually draining you of every ounce of determination inside your body and soul.

If you are going through hell, keep going.

Less Talking, More Doing

  • One of the reasons the world is as we know it and continually becoming worse is that everyone is so focused on the talk, without the actions to back it up. Everyone keeps making promises, both to themselves and to the rest of the world, they cannot keep. So, the more you become busy talking about your dreams, they get further away from you. You become less determined by repeating the hardship of it to everyone you meet. So start taking action, and everyone will notice the aftermath.

Be More Optimistic

  • I know this is a given, but determination has a great deal to do with your perspective on things. The way you view things around you can influence you significantly. What I mean is, if you see the glass as half empty, you eventually give in to the negativity this mindset creates, thus being less determined than you would have been if you tried to live with positivity and embracing that things will not always be as we want them to be. There is nothing we can do about it; just try and find a way around.

Don’t Accept No for an Answer

  • There will come times where you will not succeed on the first try, and that’s acceptable. But what is not acceptable is to give up after the first try. You need to understand that the only way for it to be over is to say it is. Until then, you are still in the game, and there is still a way out. You need to keep trying until you succeed; once you embrace this mindset, the determination will flow into you.

You Are Never Too Old to Accomplish Your Dreams

  • The more time you take to achieve a goal, and you see time flying by, it is only natural to get less motivated and determined, thinking you are too old or too late. Well, you are wrong. There have been countless stories of people going to university at the age of 97 or deciding to write their books at the age of 93, or even going to a marathon at the age of 92! If they could do it, what’s holding you back?

You Are Never Alone.

  • The human species, by definition, works in packs. Nobody was brought into this world to be alone. So, we should use the “pack” as a tool to boost our determination and every aspect of us that we want to accomplish. By surrounding ourselves with people we respect and admire, we will build the trust necessary among our team members to boost our morale and determination. Plus, surrounding yourself with the right people might also provide you solutions to problems you never knew even existed! So that’s a bonus.
