"Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal: my strength lies solely in tenacity." — Louis Pasteur
Striving for excellence is an ongoing process; it requires a persistent attitude of excellence demonstrated by a continual focus on both the large and small things in our endeavor.
Without tenacity, success is just but a far away dream. It is the force originating from within you that seeks to bring out the potential in you and drive you to your destiny.
It is the desire of many to achieve success but a determined person is never satisfied until he gets what he is after. Determination is what motivates one to strive and work hard towards success; therefore without it one tends to walk blindly and without purpose.
Take up a project or goal only if you are sure that you have the will and the energy to go ahead with your plans, whatever may be the difficulties, obstacles, and complications in your path.
Just how determined are you?
Answer that for yourself and really take a good look at your reasons for starting that idea in the first place. Because if your focus and determination lack drive, the necessary skills or bucket loads of patience you will ultimately fail in your personal quest, whatever that may be.
The commitments you make and the actions you take with enthusiastic tenacity will bring you the success you are now envisioning.
