Tenacity, a word that can take us very far!
It is an attitude that I used very often in my life and, of course I use it always. Without it, I would have given up many times when I was near the goal, with, probably, some regrets later. But we must distinguish between tenacity and stubbornness. If the first leads most often to the summits, the second would tend to lead us to the disappointment or failure.
In this spirit, what Mia Hamm said is very true:
“I’ve worked too hard and too long to let anything stand in the way of my goals. I will not let my teammates down and I will not let myself down.”
As a leader, we know the difference between tenacity and stubbornness, and we use it wisely to advance, while showing to our team that this attitude makes the difference on the road to success.
