    Some phrases I need to translate and all my dictionaries failed or I am not sure

    Good evening!
    I would like to express:
    1)follow sb's own way to achieve certain goal/(not angry, angry)
    2)have an opinion and don't want to change it/(not angry,angry)
    3)have a goal and don't want to change it/(not angry,angry)
    4)something interrupted my activity and I didn't finished or started an activity
    5)to do to the end what I promised

    Can you express this naturally, usually by phrasal verb or so..
    Thanks

    I'm afraid your question doesn't make sense.

    It might be easier to help if you put the expressions you want to use in context, rather than list them as in a dictionary.
