A lot of people preach for GRIT, and I can totally understand why.
But for me, it's all about....
*The quality or fact of being able to grip something firmly; grip.
*The quality or fact of being very determined; determination.
*The quality or fact of continuing to exist; persistence.
I find the last definition especially appealing.
Who among us doesn't want to EXIST? And to exist FULLY, meaning - having a voice to speak and share our truth out loud with the world? Being seen and heard is some of humanity's greatest wishes. And to continue in the pursuit of that - one needs to grip firmly, to persist and be determined. In short, one needs: tenacity.
