“When the mind is set; all obstacles are over come with courage and determination; Then God approaches that person and helps him succeed.”
Some people are fortunate and are born with this great quality of determination. They are the people who succeed in what ever field they set their eyes upon. But this simple yet powerful quality can be easily cultivated by taking one step at a time. One can always start with small goals. When these small goals are achieved even if with much effort; these achievements become motivating force. The high an achiever feels cannot be compared to any other thing in the world. The need of hour is to have full faith in one’s own abilities i.e. accepting one’s strengths and make full use of them. Acceptance of one’s own weaknesses is equally important because then only a person can realistically set goals and aspire for them. Paramhansa Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati has given the formula of SWAN. ‘S’ stands for strength ‘W’ stands for weaknesses. ‘A’ stands for ambitions ‘N, stands for need.
So making a balance between all these four factors and determining to overcome one’s weaknesses slowly and gradually; becoming aware of too high set ambition; one can concentrate on one’s true need. There is no elevator to success. One has to climb each step with determination, courage and will power.
