Is it or is it not possible to make things happen through sheer determination?
With things like energy arts, sometimes it works for me, but with other things (like getting my ex back...) it doesn't work at all.
Any opinions?

I would say yes, unless it violates TLOP(the laws of physics newtonian or quantum).

I can believe that I can fly under my own power all I want, but if I jump off of a building, gravity will prove me wrong time and again.

fair enough. But how can it keep proving you wrong? It can't KEEP doing that can it? You'd be dead!

Tell you what. Try believing you can walk through a brick wall, then try it. You will still get proven wrong but it's a lot less lethal. Unless you find the door.

Chi is led by the mind.

Determination comes from the mind.

So, if you can do it with Chi, then you can do it when you have enough willpower.

Of course, conditioning is one Helluva tool which'll make breaking your own thumbs a bit less likely when you decide that you're determined enough to break a 2" thick board with your thumb.
