Facing The Challenges of Our Economic Times: The Power Of Persistence, Tenacity, and Grit

We live in times of deep turmoil where the world is topsy turvy, and each new day brings with it a realization that to be good, is not good enough, simply just doing your best may require more from you in order to make your best a true indicator of your complete prowess.

I have found that the old vantage points can still provide a definitive outcome of sheer power, but to get to the pinnacle of success in this environment requires more persistance, tenacity and grit than at any other point in my career. I used to think that life was something that if I took it by the horns I would find my future direction. But more than ever the value of TEAM-Together Everyone Achieves More, has begun to take on a greater level of significance.

Interestingly enough, facing the challenges of our economic hard times will be more character building than any of us previously realized.

The race does not go to the swift of the strong but to those who endure to the end.

Winning the race happens to come to those who endure. Have you ever watched a marathon runner in the performance of their pinnacle art? They pace themselves watching like a hawk until the timing is right for their approach and ascension to greatness.

The times we face today, at the economic slump of our modern age is teaching us all a great deal. If you could only see the myriad of lessons being given now, this day, at our time, this is not the Great Depression, perhaps it could be labeled the Great Recession, but who in their right mind would argue that when life gives incredible hurdles, that to give up is best?

But how many of us, feel this way, when the momentum seems to be stagnant, when voices all around us are saying no, no, no, no, no.

What is needed is yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. An incredible amount of stress is involved with those who want immediate gratification. I argue that the need for immediate gratification, and self indulgence, has carried us to this time of distress.

Now, is the time to stand firm and strong with your moral ideals tightened stronger than ever.

Challenges in today's economy will require a soul for persistence, a burning desire to get a fill no matter what and passion to put people back to work again.

I don't know about you, but this drives me more than anything.

Intriguing it is to me those people who show no care for their struggling candidate, or for those that see human beings as "capital" to be burned and spent like any commidity.

This is a major psychological mistake and mental blunder. For if you can see the power of a human being to recreate their circumstances with a bit of creativity and luck, then you will not give up on your staff when the going gets rough. Rather you will pull together, and see the good in people-and really create the positive direction that leads to outcomes of substantial prowess.

The challenges are ahead, but durable and compatible matches are waiting to be made. Let your passion, determination, and grit weather the storm, and when the time comes when the economic hard times dissipate, the glory of a tremendous winning season will mark a new chorus of incredible changes to propel you where you need to be.

The greatest lessons occur in the work place, and finding your niche and propelling others to theirs, will always be hallmarks of incredible success.

The race does not go to the swift or the strong but to those who endure to the end.
I have always been fascinated by that concept.
