Ever wonder if some people are born with a tenacity gene? Not going to dive into the whole nature vs. nurture debate with you here today. Instead, I’m throwing out eight specific questions I don’t doubt all tenacious souls make a point of asking themselves at various stages throughout their journey albeit maybe on a subconscious level. At any given moment we are thriving or whittling away, no matter the commitment.There really is a time for everything.
Questions to help you decide whether you’re being called to thrive or whittle away…~What am I willing to sacrifice to accomplish this?
~Who is gaining from this? If the answer is me alone, is it worth it?~Do I receive any joy in this or from this?
~Am I able to accurately identify my strengths and weaknesses involving this?
~Have I sought accountability in order to continue improving in this?~Is there fruit? Am I making a difference with this specific commitment? (If the answer is no or doubtful, am I flexible and willing to make a change?)
~Will I be able to look back years from now and be grateful for the time I spent on this?
There you have it. Eight to tuck in your pocket and pull out when you feel like doing a little reflecting about how you’re spending your seconds here on earth.
Any surprise you? Is there any one question that seemed to strike you in particular today?
