Life Skills #6: Tenacity

There are some things in life that may come easy but most things worth having or achieving will only come with dedication and tenacity to get it. —Germaine Moody
Tenacity is the ability to keep going, even when the going gets tough.

You see, what matters is not all about what makes us tick, or entertained. Often, it's just what makes us stick it out till finish line. Because the quality of the life we live is determined in large part by our tenacity to do good, to strive towards a goal.

This doesn't mean zero-change. Rather, it is our willingness to upset the status quo by creating change and staying at it long enough until it spreads. It speaks of character. Because our ability to remain rooted and grounded in our values and principles while refusing to live stale, boring lives is what makes us first. No one really wants to come in second.

So, it's not time to quit! You think you have a boring job? Or relationship? Or even, your "self"? Well, what have you done the past thirty days to change that? If you'll just keep doing the same things that actually led you to that stale job or relationship, you'll keep getting the same.

We can change that. Join me. Let's make change and stay at it—
Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity. ~L. Pasteur
