Determination (The Will to Win)
The one quality that helped more people become successful than any other: determination. When the odds are against them, it’s often sheer determination that helps successful people persevere and become successful in the first place.
We all have obstacles in our lives that we must overcome, and determination helps us get through them. Are you determined enough to achieve success? Tommy Lasorda, Manager for the Los Angeles Dodgers, once said:
“the difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a man’s determination.”
A sports quote seems so appropriate regarding success and determination. How much do you want to succeed? Successful people fail, but are willing to keep getting back up, until they succeed. Is that determination? Self-determination is a combination of skills and values that enable people to take control of their lives to achieve success.

I am referring to self-discipline or discipline of oneself. It is the ability to motivate oneself regardless how you feel.
Some of the qualities of self-discipline are:
- Hard work and
Think about all the things that you could accomplish if you had discipline? Wouldn’t it be great to lose weight, ace every exam, or make lasting, positive changes in your life? You could make more money, accomplish more, or just be happier. Self-control means you can refrain from giving in to your impulses and make better decisions.
Discipline can keep you from procrastinating or overspending. Self-control will stop overindulgence or help you exercise more.
Discipline keeps you in the game, whether you practice and get better or learn new skills and habits.
Discipline helps you both in and out of school. Whether you are in school or not, you are constantly learning new skills and gaining new knowledge and experience.
Participating in sports, learning and playing an instrument, getting involved with clubs/organizations or many professions require and reinforce discipline.
Willpower and self-disciple are keys to help you reach success and your goals.
Confidence comes from discipline and training. - Robert Kiyosaki
