A tenacious spirit...


July 12, 2009...

"Failure". "Rejection". "Defeat". "Disappointment". 

Call it whatever you want...but it's a crummy feeling.

For me? It sits in the core of my mental and emotional being for as long as the "loss" was big.

But I never let it stop me from battling again. I never let fear stop me from going another round.

It's pretty darn hard to eliminate the hard-wired fear of "failure" out of our brain, but I do know that one way to deal with "the crappy feeling" effectively is to never let it stop you. Each time you get back up off the canvas after getting knocked down, get back up.

By doing so, you will develop tenacity.

And in the end, a tenacious spirit will push disappointment into the past.
