Unfortunately in life, far too many people start out pursuing their dream but somewhere along the way to fulfilling it, they give up. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The great majority of men are bundles of beginnings.” Are you merely a starter, or are you also a finisher? When the enthusiasm for a new idea fades, when the odds against you increase and the results diminish, when it looks as if success is impossible, you must keep forging ahead.
Quitting is more about who you are, than where you are or what you’re up against. We all have excuses. The truth is, external things don’t stop us, it’s what happens to us on the inside! Most of us stop ourselves from reaching our potential. We can pretend that people, things, and situations outside of ourselves are to blame, but in reality most failures are just the result of a lack of bulldog-like tenacity.
For you to see your dream become reality, you must have a mindset to tenaciously pursue it. The only guarantee for failure is to stop trying. There is no insurmountable barrier, except your own inherent lack of purpose and persistence. “Let us not grow weary while doing good.” Galatians 6:9 NKJV It just may be time to get your bulldog-like tenacity on.
