Tenacity is the passion, determination, discipline, perseverance and resilience to achieve worthwhile dreams.

It is the long, narrow and stony path between you and your desired goals.

Through ever-improving tenacity, you will end at sustainable success.

Tenacity is not just about having the guts, grit and gumption to do what you want to do.

It is also about doing the things that you don’t want to do in order to reach the desired destination.

Tenacity drives you to persevere despite obstacles, adversity and failures along the way.

Tenacity is a trait that can be developed and fine tuned through constant commitment, focused effort, and improvement.

Practicing tenacity can become a habit.

In the same way, quitting can also be a habit

Why not choose the habit of practicing tenacity?

Tenacious people don’t just ask, “What if I fail?” They also ask themselves, “What if I don’t succeed?”

They don’t just ask, “Is there a way?” They also ask, “How can I find a way?

“How can I develop a better way, or pursue a better destination?”

“Am I willing to risk who I am, what I do, and what I have for the sake of who I can be, what I can do, and what I can have?

If you run out of solutions, tenacity will eventually help you develop appropriate solutions.
When you press on to develop tenacity, tenacity will help you press on towards success.

When a problem is too big for you to overcome, tenacity compels you to grow stronger and bigger than your problem so that you are better positioned to overcome the problem.

When you press on in pressing on, you will get better in completing the tasks.

The race will get easier.

As you become more tenacious, you can become luckier too.

Tenacity allows you to try different keys and one of them may even unlock the door to achieve the impossible.

To practice tenacity is to live like water.

Water is an essence of life. It cleanses and purifies, and it is a a life-giver too.

It thrives because it is a vital resource to humans, families, communities and society.

There is no other element that can take on different shapes, states and sizes.

Trigger different senses and sensations.

Water can be hot or cold, and be still or flowing.

Cleanse and purify, and also ascend to the sky and descend to the depths of earth.

At the same time, water is meek and powerful, and soft and strong.

Gentle and submissive and yet, nothing can stand in its way.

Water flows across the land and from the highest peaks to the lowest pits, bringing forth and sustaining life.

Water speaks to me of integrity, clarity, ability, adaptability, agility, creativity and tenacity.

These are qualities that are needed to survive and succeed in the brave new age of disorder.

Any obstacle that stands in the way of water will eventually have to give way to it.

Water will eventually find the way to its destination.

It can move mountains and change landscapes permanently.

Therefore, like water, be unstoppable.

Success belongs who to those who never give up.

These leaders believe that success is a long corner but it is just around the corner.

They craft some of the most inspiring stories to transform lives and change destinies.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
