Developing a DTS plan (destined to succeed)!


We’ve all had to face challenges in our lives that we felt were more than we could handle. I had faced many great challenges, and one lost my mother in 2001. But one of the painful challenges I recently faced was the early passing away of my 2 week old grandson.

He was born 17/17/2009 and passed 30/30/2009. The reason I am writing this article is because I know there are many people who face challenging situations and may feel that they cannot cope. So I just wanted to tell you that you can handle it!

Part of accomplishing that is developing a mindset to endure. It is a fact that some of our challenges are very painful. I experienced that with the passing of my mother and granddaughter, but we do not have to let challenges or pain destroy us spiritually, emotionally, mentally or physically, and I know that is not what my mother or granddaughter wants for my family.

Part of the persistence includes having a plan to succeed. With success, I do not mean financial, I mean personal success. I am one who places a lot of emphasis on personal success because, from my point of view, it is necessary for us to succeed in other areas of our lives. When I talk about personal success, I mean to succeed personally! As a brief overview, I think you think you can do it … so do it (whatever you are), without letting anything or anyone stand in your way!

Working towards personal success requires a lot of dedication and determination! If most of us would be honest, we would probably admit that sometimes when we are going through a tough time, giving up is an easy thing to do. But when we develop a mentality that giving up is not an opportunity, it can allow us to be motivated to achieve our goals and dreams and total personal success.

Think about this for a moment. Has there ever been a time in your life where you wanted to stop but you found that mustard seed of faith so you keep pushing? How did it make you feel? Think about this if you once walked what? You can do it again!

It’s possible! And this is where the development of a DTS-determined success plan comes into play! Developing your DTS plan is not a complicated thing you just write your challenge or fight for, then state your motivations or reasons that you need to overcome or overcome your challenge, you can also write encouraging words to yourself, quotes or tips, reconsider your DTS schedule daily, and set goals that are in line with your DTS plan.

The way I got on the DTS plan was from losing my grandson. One day after we put him to rest I cried my eyes and felt very sad. After a few minutes had passed, I pulled my little notebook out of my bag and wrote that I am DTS … Determined to succeed. I noted positive words to myself, scriptures, all the reasons why I had to stay focused and all the motivations. Anything that would help me, I wrote it down!

For the most part, I have always been a positive person and I am a faithful person, but as I developed my DTS plan it took things to another level, emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically. It was an important part of my plan for personal success!

There are 10 DTS tips that I want to share with you. You can add more to your DTS plan and you can make your DTS plan adapt to you and your challenge, but these were important to me. So I hope they also help you in some way.

1. Realize that our purpose is greater than our pain.

2. Understanding that no matter how great our challenges are to God is greater.

3. Surround yourself with family and friends who love you and stay motivated as you go through a tough time.

4. When you hear defeat knock on the door, send victory for answers!

5. When someone passes away whom we love, we must try to let their lives overshadow their death.

6. Try to see the rainbow even when you’re in the storm.

7. Look in the mirror and see what you want to be inside and out.

8. Speak positive words in your life and cancel negative thoughts.

9. Don’t forget the 4 Ps push, pray, press and endure!

10. Cry, if you have it too, that’s ok! It doesn’t make you weak; you don’t have to have an “SS” on your chest to show everyone that you are “Super Survivor!” You are human and things hurt, and there are times when you just want to cry a river full of tears, so if you remember it is ok!

These 10 tips are not all we need to overcome the struggles and challenges we face, but they can be a good foundation. Through this article, my goal is to encourage and support you. I know that no words can ever alleviate some of the challenges, pains and obstacles you face. But please know that you can handle it!
