July Powerful Word – PERSEVERANCE – Week 1

This week, we’re talking about perseverance and quitting. Think about all the goals you have achieved because you persevered. How would it have affected you if you quit in the middle? Would you be a different person? There are plenty of people in our lives who are known to start something and not finish it. What do you think that does to a person? Douglas MacArthur once said; “Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul.” Do you agree? As leaders, sometimes we are put in a position to advise others about what to do in terms of their goals. When do you think someone should follow through and persevere and when, if ever, do you think it’s OK to quit? This week, your Powerful Thought Assignment is to rate yourself on your perseverance on a scale from 1-10, 1 being “doesn’t persevere at all”and 10 being “always perseveres.” What do you viewas the barriers to seeing your goals through to the end?
