One cannot argue that Sri Chinmoy possessed incredible determination! He not only achieved his goals in weightlifting but overcame failure time after time. He often recounted a period in his training where he attempted to lift 200 pounds overhead and failed day after day. Rather than giving up, he maintained his determination.

I do not give up,
I never give up,
For there is nothing
In this entire world
That is irrevocably unchangeable.

– Sri Chinmoy
