The Key To Persevering Through Obstacles

CLARITY KICKSTART: August 26, 2013

“Anyone who has ever accomplished a very difficult feat will tell you that they first had to deal with their own doubt and come to a place where they truly believed it was possible. Not just for one moment, but with a consistency and force that could be felt in the depths of their very being.”

~ Christina Gage

Coaching Tip For The Week:

Think about a goal or project you’re currently working towards. What obstacles stand in your way, trying to steer you off-course? How do you handle those?

The question isn’t whether or not you’ll encounter challenges – you will. The question is, what are you going to do about them? 

Are you going to let them stop you, or are you going to persevere?

That depends on how strongly you believe in your goal, yourself, and the importance of your project. With a powerful sense of purpose, you can do anything. But you have to have that knowing inside you, in a deep and resonating way.

This week, as you consider the goal or project mentioned above, focus on the underlying purpose for it. What are your top reasons for pursuing this goal? How will your work or life be different when you achieve it? Connect deeply with the purpose, and you’ll be able to persevere through any obstacle you encounter.
