Be the Titan of Tenacity

If you could be a super hero for a day, which would you be?  In an elementary school play, I got to be the Titan of Tenacity.  “The Titan of Tenacity is my name, and stick to-it-iveness is my game!”  It turns out that tenacity and persistence is one of the 8 secrets to success, according to Richard St. John.  And it’s easy to see why!

 

If you don’t keep going, you’ll never get to your dreams

or develop executive charisma!


Persistence isn’t:

doing the same thing again and again – regardless of whether it’s working or not.  When you want something, go for it, and keep at it.  And always evaluate your methods!  Repeating the same action (or inaction), and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity!  Avoid that, and use new things to keep moving forward.

Persistence is:

drive, creativity, and commitment.

Be driven.

Be willing to really want something.  Inner motivation is the only thing you have that can keep you going.  Desire is a good thing.  Use it to motivate yourself!

Get creative.

Use your head and the resources around you (including people – for example, a mastermind group) to find new solutions to old challenges.  Know when to change tactics.  Remember, it’s okay to change your mind, especially when circumstances change.

Commit.

Form a habit of going for more and taking steps towards what you want.  Seriously.  Every day.  Get this to happen by setting just 15 minutes aside every day for ACTION.  And use it!

Be the Titan of Tenacity each and every day.  Get closer to your dream, freedom, happiness, and fulfillment.  You can do this!  You have the power!

Love, CarolAnn

    This is great advice! I love what you said about using the people around you as a resource, and setting aside 15 minutes a day to work towards a goal.
