“Taking action is essential if you want to achieve your goals, dreams, and desires. To ensure that you stay in action, one of the most important qualities you must develop is persistence.”

Determination shall help garner a lot of power and that too positive. Now if you have decided to study for two hours and if a friend drops by after about an hour or so, then you should tell him that there’s still about forty minutes of study time left so we shall meet later. One should not falter but should stick to the decision that has been taken. Then, nature too shall provide a lot of help.

if you remain firm in your decision that it’s been only two and a half hours and you shall stop only after three hours of studying, then you will cultivate a lot of determination power. In these circumstances, nature too shall help by not sending evidences of disturbance for those three hours. If you stay determined, you shall develop a lot of strength. With this you will see striking results. Then even on studying for just three hours you will complete the task which otherwise would have taken 7 to 8 hours. And you can devote the remaining five hours to ‘Seva’. The power of determination is awesome!!    Let us see what Gnani say’s………

Questioner: Whenever I sit to study, I soon tend to lose interest and the mind starts wandering. What should I do?
Pujyashree: Suppose you have planned to study for two hours, say from 7.00 to 9.00 or from 7.00 to 10.00, then you should pray, ‘Dada Bhagwan, please grant me the strength to study with utmost concentration for three hours.’ You should repeat this for about 5 to 10 times and after that, for 10 minutes with closed eyes you should chant ‘Dada bhagwan na aseem jay jaykar ho’ in such a manner that each letter is read while chanting. After that if there is any disturbance or if Alkesh (reader should read their name) wishes to get up then you should tell him, ‘Sit tight Alkesh, you have decided to study for 3 hours and it’s been only 20 minutes yet. Why are you getting up? Sit down!’
Questioner: Alright. But what if it doesn’t last long even on deciding to do the same?

Power-of-Determination-Inner

Pujyashree: It may so happen that after a while there might be some external disturbance like you might hear some music or someone might put on the T.V. and some dialogues might be heard. But if you remain firm in your decision that it’s been only two and a half hours and you shall stop only after three hours of studying, then you will cultivate a lot of determination power. In these circumstances, nature too shall help by not sending evidences of disturbance for those three hours. If you stay determined, you shall develop a lot of strength. With this you will see striking results. Then even on studying for just three hours you will complete the task which otherwise would have taken 7 to 8 hours. And you can devote the remaining five hours to ‘Seva’. The power of determination is awesome!
Questioner: What should one do if two to three hours seem too long a period?
Pujyashree: In that case, pre-plan what is to be done and then don’t make any changes. You may plan to sit for two hours or even an hour but then stick to it. After an hour you may even take a break of twenty minutes. Have that liberty. Then, mind too shall be pleased. Determination shall help garner a lot of power and that too positive. Now if you have decided to study for two hours and if a friend drops by after about an hour or so, then you should tell him that there’s still about forty minutes of study time left so we shall meet later. One should not falter but should stick to the decision that has been taken. Then, nature too shall provide a lot of help. Did you understand?
