Keep your determination alive and well as you strive
Guard against these primary reasons why most people lose their will to succeed…
Why do we lose the drive to succeed? Without a strong desire to overcome obstacles and reach the top, you won’t get very far. But once that spark is gone, getting it back is difficult.
Before you start wondering whether your efforts and dreams are worthwhile, guard against these primary reasons why most people lose their will to succeed:
• Loss of confidence. If you don’t believe in yourself, you won’t get very far when obstacles arise. Before starting out on a goal, be sure you’ve got the skills and willpower to persevere.
• Unclear focus. You can easily lose sight of your goals if you’re not clear on what you want to achieve. Narrow your sights so you’ve got a single, specific objective in mind—one that’s important enough for you to pursue with determination.
• Lack of direction. Every journey is a series of steps. If you don’t know what steps to take, you’ll get lost quickly. Look at your destination and decide what you need to do to reach it. Create a plan that lays out each move forward so you can track your progress and keep heading on.
