I have decided to take part in the Five Minute Friday Challenge hosted by The Gypsy Mama. For this Challenge we:
- Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
- Link back to The Gypsy Mama’s blog . (And don’t forget to invite others to join in the challenge – will you join me?)
- Visit the other person who linked up before you and encourage them.
This week’s prompt is: Grit
Grit. Determination. Never give up.
These are the characteristics to have when you want to achieve a dream, a goal that you have in your life. Never giving up means that you do not accept that your dream is impossible; it means that you accept the obstacles that come your way and work out how to overcome them; it means that you see the impediments to your goal as just another way to reach whatever it is you want to achieve.
The reward for grit is satisfaction: satisfaction in a dream realised and an objective attained. The determination you have in reaching your goal, no matter is it takes years, brings to you an inner contentment at a job well achieved. Surely that is reward enough for the motivation you carry within you, the old-fashioned grit, that is continually challenged in our daily lives.
