Determination is a very powerful force that we all have inside of us. It is the strength that keeps us going when things get tough. Determination is also key to positive thinking.

Failure in people is caused more by lack of determination than lack of talent.When we are determined to have something, or to make something happen, then it is more likely to come about rather than non-believing, or giving up. When we have something put in our minds, and we set a goal, then we are more likely to achieve this ambition. It is so important for us to be motivated and determined to reach our goals. How do we do that? We set our minds and keep focus on our purpose, and do not forget how bad we want it. If we want something really bad, then we will try almost anything to get it. We will try different ways and different approaches. How bad do you want it?  Determination means continuing on regardless the obstacles. Everything is not always going to be easy. With determination we will reach our goals. Determination brings us to our wishes. If we continue to think positively and believe, then with determination we will soon find what we have been looking for.

Some great examples of determination were the inventions of electricity and then the light bulb. I'm sure we have all heard the stories. How many times did it take those men to get their invention right? Did they get it on the first try? No way! They tried hundreds of times to get it right! And just imagine where we would be if they gave up on their ideas. Some of the greatest inventions took many tries to get them right. So let's remember that when we don't always succeed on the first try. It is possible, and it can happen. We just have to believe and have the determination not to give up.

Don't let set backs get you down. Don't let complications hold us back from getting what we want. Continue forward and don't give up. Believe in yourself and have faith in the universe that your needs and wants will be provided. Determination means never giving up.
