Motivational Monday - Tenacity, Stubborn Determination

 

One could compare tenacity with beating a dead horse - or simply annoyance! Today’s motivation is 100% about the former - tenacity. 

 

The Oxford Dictionary defines tenacity as the quality or fact of being very determined; determination. If one is tenacious, they’re probably one who never gives up and never stops trying – someone who does whatever is required to accomplish a goal.  

 

tenacity

 

Tenacity is the mark of the strategic thinker, never content with their methodology. Whereas someone who is ‘persistent,’ has an unrelenting approach but, works harder, not smarter. Tenacious people possess the same indomitable will as those who are persistent but, choose to utilize the information and data from their attempts to further improve their methodology.

 

The methodology of those who are tenacious becomes increasingly more effective thus, working smarter, not harder. Those with tenacity analyze results, have no qualms seeking expert advice and ultimately, implement positive changes. The process is repeated until the job is done or the goal is achieved. 

 

 

Remember:  Tenacity and attitude will get you through anything in life--so, sticktoit and leave no stone unturned!

Hi Debe,

Congrats on your post being featured. Good post! When I read your title, I thought you must be talking about my wife, it describes her to a T. I have learned over the years never tell her she can't do something she will prove you wrong every time! She wanted to cut off a few tree branches last week once she realized she couldn't climb the tree that is on a steep slope to do it she tied a log to a rope threw it over the branch pulled it down and tied it to the tree so she could cut the branch and repeated with each branch she wanted to cut. We do have a landscaper but he is booked for the rest of the year.

Aww, that is so sweet, Anna! I got mine from my military Dad - and count the tenacity and ability to problem solve a true blessing from him too.

I think we all have a little stubborness, George Souto - sometimes we HAVE to be stubborn, don't we?!

Well, I'm happy I was on-target and in line with James Clear, Vani Murthy, CPA! There is a big difference and people often use the terms interchangably in error.

Oh, I'm in complete agreement with you, Kris Collis, Associate Broker I played basketball and remember telling my boys when they played as little boys, not to fret over the losses but, to use them as learning tools. Those are tools that you don't have 'the privilege' of getting when you win!

Good morning Debe Maxwell, CRS ,

So glad to see your post featured..so inspiring! Tenacity is so different from stubbornness in my eyes. Tenacity is looking for an answer even if you have to circle it several times and think outside the box to find the answer! You'll find it by being pro-active and not digging in your heels and not willing to budge.

Best post in the history of AR. I'm sending this to my 12 and 15 year old kids. Hope all is well in CLT. I hope to get back to the lake sometime this winter. Are you on Lake Wyile or Norman?

Ahh, thank you, Patricia! I am nothing, if not tenacious - it is definitely in my blood! I always joked (decades ago) that it was probably a negative! Now that I am in this business, I am happy to be tenacious - in our business, it's ever-so helpful, I believe.

Hi Debe,

I have told her a million times. I caught her one time up in the tree she climbed wearing her flip flops. Another time she was picking raspberries and slipped and started to slide down the hill on her back. I looked outside and could see our dog but not Tracy so I went out to see where she was, I could hear giggling like crazy. I look over our retaining wall and raspberry bushes to see her lying on her back hanging on to a stump with her baby finger laughing her head off, she couldn't move or she would have slide the rest of the way down the hill, not that she would have been badly hurt if she had slid all the way down other than few more scrapes. She keeps me on my toes!!

OMG, that is hilarious, Steve Higgins! I guess she does keep you on your toes! I got a good chuckle of her lying there, laughing and hanging on by one finger - she sounds like my kind of girl!

Besides tenacity, how many attributes and good qualities does Debe Maxwell, CRS possess? Let me count the ways... If there's one thing I am 100% certain of is that there is nothing negative about you! 

To meet you in person, read your blog, or meet you in person is like receiving a large bouquet of flowers. You brighten up our lives. Your persona is as fresh as a daisy and the love and caring nature you have for others is greater than 2 dozen roses. In other words, you are an extraordinary gift that money can't buy. We are fortunate to have you here on ActiveRain and in our lives.

Where on earth is that 'LOVE' button, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP?! What a kind and generous comment that I could turn right around and give to YOU!

Your challenge is one that most can't even begin to fathom, yet you remain so sweet and kind...and even able to laugh. To me, that takes tenacity to a whole other level - and takes more courage than one can imagine.

YOU are extraordinary and we are all so blessed to have such kindness bestowed upon us in our lives. Thank you for being you, Patricia!

Hi Debe,

Yes she certainly does. Oh it was a pretty funny sight seeing her laying there laughing her head off and not being able to move! We still laugh about it. Oh the stories I could tell about her and the hill! She's 61 but she flies around like she is 20!! Lol
