Focus and Determination

Focus and Determination

 Did you hear about the rose

That grew from a crack in the concrete?

Proving that nature’s law is wrong,

It learned to walk without having feet.

Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams,

It learned to breathe fresh air.

Long live the rose that grew from concrete,

When no one else ever cared.

“The Rose That Grew From Concrete”

Tupac Shakur

Determination is an admirable quality; being able to push through any situation and continue to strive is the definition of perseverance. Everyone has their own dreams and goals that they wish to accomplish, but it can be difficult to remain strong and not give up. There will be plenty of distractions along the way, deterring you from achieving your goals. Sometimes, it is necessary to take a new, longer, more difficult path in order to find your original one. Life is going to provide the obstacles, it is your choice whether to succumb or overcome them. Know that as long as you stay vigilant and determined you will prevail.

If a person remains focused and puts forth an enormous amount of effort, they will earn everything they set out to obtain. I have witnessed people give up on several things. School, work, relationships, are all examples of things cast aside when someone gives up. I have seen people give up just because someone else told them they would not make it, that their dreams are silly and impossible. Do not lose your faith in yourself. Never let someone else dictate your future.

Determination thrives on focus to cause greatness. Use different tactics to remain focused on your goals. Stay organized, talk to those who support you, reward yourself when you reach small goals, or whatever else you need in order to stay motivated. Most people do not take the time to celebrate the beginning of their journey because they fail to realize that simply deciding to make a change is a great effort in itself.

Lastly, most people are still trying to find their way. Over time, clarity will come when you have opened yourself to the world. Then you will have found out who you are and what you want out of life. Finding your passion and working toward your dreams is not easy but always worth it. Believe that you are worth it and that you can achieve anything you set out to do. So go after that promotion, obtain your degree, save for a new car, or work to become a better person. You can do it. Remain focused, push forward with determination and you will obtain your desired outcome.

Turn possibility into reality.
