Success Thought of the Day – 7/19/18: The Force of the Determined

 

There is in this world no such force as the force of a man determined to rise. The human soul cannot be permanently chained. - W.E.B. DuBois

There are certain TV shows or movies that I tend to watch over and over again.  For me, the hitlist that jumps to the top of my mind are Jurassic Park, The Temptations Movie, The Good Times TV Series and Jaws.  In each of those, there is a character who illustrates the force of the determined.

Interestingly enough, in Jurassic Park, it is highlighted as truth early in the movie in one of my favorite scenes.  It is when John Hammond, Jurassic Park owner, along with the scientists, are speaking with Dr. Ian Malcolm (played by Jeff Goldblum).  They are trying to convince Dr. Malcolm that they can control Jurassic Park’s growth because they have engineered it that way by producing only female dinosaurs.  Dr. Malcolm then states the following in response:

If there is one thing the history of evolution has taught us it’s that life will not be contained. Life breaks free, it expands to new territories and crashes through barriers, painfully, maybe even dangerously, but, uh… well, there it is.

The Take-Away

Fun and dinosaurs aside, the point is, your decisions and determination are powerful.  Make no mistake, you will face barriers, hurdles, and valleys – – but your tests and trials will produce your testimonies.  The Force of the determined will prevail.

Have a great day!
