Determination is attitude that beats the odds.

  Determination is a bridge of sensual thinking that connects drive with passions.

For all of us, success comes from a place of trial and error. When trying to invent electricity, Thomas Edison famously  said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”  Determination connects body and mind with heart and soul to find satisfaction. 

Today, search engines guide us to be like Mr. Edison. We feel more determined because we know we can search other ways, other solutions, more alternatives, and that in the cloud, there are always new possibilities. With determination, we can cross any bridge in our lives.

Staying in step with change is done by staying clear about what does not change. What does not change is the human ability to feel what is right. What feels deeply right connects directly with our passions and sense of purpose. Determination is an intuitive global value that links us with our passions. It’s important to stay connected.

Mark King decided to be an inventor when he was 17.  He trusted ‘his own method’, his enthusiasm and his intuition about what felt right. He trusted himself to think with his senses and feel with his mind. As a result of this commitment to do what felt right, Mark connected with his passion and as a result, developed a different kind of patience that helps him continue to beat the odds. 

An attitude of determination naturally creates the uncanny inability to become frustrated. 

With an attitude of determination , Mark King went from making things from SuperGlue and bubble gum, to making a machine that analyzes the crunch in granola bars for a multi-billion dollar company. Today, the 21-year old community-college dropout, has multiple patents, and continues to trust what feels right.  

Sensual thinking is not intellectual. It is a connection with wisdom. Wisdom is not the same as knowledge. Knowledge can be memorized or learned. Wisdom is a sense of understanding of how things fit together. We are all natural sensual thinkers. Tune in to what makes you feel determined. It's right under your skin

Connecting with the passion of what feels right beats the odds.Think with your senses. Feel with your mind. Get attitude.
