Adversities can be overcome only with determination. Never give up always keep moving. We should keep changing. We should adapt. But never change our goal. Stay focused. Single-minded focus alone takes us to success.
O descendent of the Kurus, the intellect of those who are on this path is resolute, and their aim is one-pointed. But the intellect of those who are irresolute is many branched (Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2 – Verse 41)
The resolute mind is always one-pointed.
The thoughts of the determined are always focused.
Real power is in the power of hard work and determination. Sometimes we have the wrong notion that prayers, rituals and luck can substitute for hard work. But this is not true.
Those with limited understanding, get attracted to the flowery words of the Vedas, which advocate ostentatious rituals for elevation to the celestial abodes, and presume no higher principle described in them. They glorify only those portion of the Vedas that please their senses, and performs pompous ritualistic ceremonies for attaining high birth, opulence, sensual enjoyment, and elevation to the heavenly planets. (Gita Chapter II 42 – 43)
With their minds deeply attached to worldly pleasures and their intellects bewildered by such things, they are unable to possess the resolute determination for success. (Gita Chapter II 44)
We can find whatever success we are looking for if we work hard and make good decisions when opportunity arises.
Success will elude us always if we are nervous and distrustful of our own prowess.
Some say talent is enough. But without determination and hard work your talent won’t be enough to achieve success.
Passionate persistence is the secret to outstanding achievements.
