“The world eventually bows down to those who never bow down to the world.”

“The most intelligent people in the world work for the most determined people in the world.”

“There is a reason why so many people who have a spectacular rise to fame have a fall that is just as spectacular. Being in the right place at the right time or pure luck might help you get to the top. But it is sheer discipline, determination and a persevering nature that helps you stay there.”

“Life is a game where belief, persistence, grit and determination eventually always beat talent, connections, intelligence and fortune.”

“ The pursuit of a goal can never be hindered by lack of time, only by a lack of will.”

“If you have a dream, never say you will just “give it a shot.” That attitude is a recipe for failure. Great things don’t happen to those who are willing to just give it a shot. They only happen to those who are determined to accomplish their dream no matter what. Even if you lose eventually, it doesn’t matter. There is no shame in losing if you know in your heart that you put in your absolute best to win. But a loss that results from your own unwillingness to prepare to win will haunt you for a lifetime.”

“Be rigid in terms of the determination to reach your goal, for if you are not determined you will never reach your goal. However, be flexible in terms of the ways to achieve the goal. Because if you take the wrong path and refuse to change, you may just be inviting disaster.”

“The determination to succeed is of far more value than any God given ability you may have, for all talent is worthless if you lack the will to turn it into something worthwhile.”

“People who fail have a lack of determination and a surplus of excuses. If you wish to succeed, just reverse it.”

“Success is directly proportional to the size of your determination and inversely proportional to the number of your excuses. “

“ If you keep having setbacks, but still have the courage to pick yourself up and move on, you will succeed some day. But if you keep making excuses, you stand absolutely no chance.”

“There is no room for others’ negativity if we have already filled our minds with an absolute determination to fulfill our dreams.”

“There is nothing in the world that can stop you except one. It is not your ethnicity, it is not your gender, it isn’t your age, it isn’t a disability and it certainly isn’t your current economic condition. The only thing that can stop you is lack of your own determination to succeed.”
