A lot of what we get out of life is directly tied to how much we want it and how much we’re willing to pursue it. Even Jesus said, “Seek and you will find.” The “Seek” part means to pursue. It doesn’t mean we sit on the porch wishing for what could be, it means we get up and GO after it.
It means we make a choice to Be Tenacious and live with Persistent Determination each and every day.
We decide in advance not to give up at the first sign of the hill because we know that what’s on the other side is worth the climb.
We accept the fact that there will be adversity along the way and we understand that while we can’t always control the challenges we face, we can control our response to them. They may occasionally knock us down but we can choose to keep getting up and keep moving forward.
It’s not easy. No one said it would be. But is it worth it? Only you can answer that. Guess we’ll never really know though unless we try but based on the examples set by many others before us, my hunch is that it’s worth it indeed.
It’s not just about making big dreams a reality though.
It’s not just about pursing your God-given purpose either.
It’s also about those smaller, daily tasks that need to get done.
It’s about setting your eye on the prize and doing your very best to achieve it.
Be Tenacious and live with Persistent Determination each and every day.
