Welcome to the “Word Up” – inspiration and insights on everyday words; exploring the power and meaning behind them.
“When words are kind and true, they can change our world” ~ Buddha
Not readily letting go of, giving up, or separated from an object hat one holds, a position, or a principle. Not easily dispelled or discouraged; persisting in existence or in a course of action.
So, people are often seen as ‘overnight successes’ but most truly successful people never let go, kept going, persisted in a course of action and with this tenacity, came success.
Let me ask you:
- Who would you describe as tenacious and what makes you say that?
- What are you pursuing with tenacity at the moment and how will you keep going?
- What could make you stop and how will you handle that?
Or, in other words:
“Patience and tenacity are worth more than
twice their weight of cleverness.“
~ Thomas Huxley
