Tenacity is one of the most important quality you may want to have and the most sought-after soft skill you may want to improve.
Has often been said that “Vision without action is hallucination” and this is particularly true in entrepreneurship and business settings, yet many people let their inertia creep in.
The determination to achieve your goals, motivation to hone your craft and work hard on your skills, that vision of your end goal sharp and clear in your mind. All this doesn’t matter if you don’t have the tenacity to put one step in front of the other, every second, every minute, every day.
Remember: every long trip starts with one simple, short step.
Sometimes may be hard to keep going, to keep hustling, to resist the struggle, the enemy of all creators and entrepreneurs, that unique moment in which you find yourself questioning “why am I doing all this” or ” am I really that valuable to do it? Am I creating some real value with this venture? Did I check my ego at the door or am I doing this just to feel the hype?”.
In those moments, even if you are right about posing yourself those valuable questions, you have to take a deep breath, exhale and stand up again, once more. To reach your destination and the next, and the next after that.
Tenacity is what keeps us going for the whole life.
Tenacity is what kept our genre from extinction.
