July Powerful Word – PERSEVERANCE – Week 2

This week, we’re talking about what gets in the way of perseverance. What do you think stops people from sticking with their goals (i.e. fear of failure or succeeding, laziness, boredom, priorities, peer pressure)? How can we combat our fears that get in the way of our goals? How can we push though the boredom that can make us feel unfocused and interested in something new? As a leader, how can we advise someone who is clearly overwhelmed and having trouble sticking with their goals due to overscheduling or peer pressure to do something else? This week, your Powerful Thought Assignment is to think about a time when you were ready to quit going after one of your goals. Did you stop or did you keep going? Why? How do you feel about your choice now?
