Grit. Tenacity. Perseverance. Whatever name you want to give it, your goal digger journey requires that you develop an overflow of this decisiveness, strength of character, and commitment to purposefulness. No one ever said this life would be easy. In fact, some days are downright tough and can leave you feeling like you are grasping for air. But as the goal digger that you are you have to stick it out and see the purpose and lives that are going to be impacted on the other side of whatever opportunity (we see challenges as opportunities as goal diggers) and learn to keep going. It’s all about the journey. So how does grit actually even work? Why do you need it in your goal digger toolkit? Here are a couple reasons why this characteristic
Grit requires that you stay in the game for the long haul
In all of history, there is not one thing that has been successfully accomplished without some missteps or bumps in the road. As I was watching Being Mary Jane a couple weeks ago something Michael Ealy’s character said stuck out to and stayed with me since I heard it. “I don’t quit and I don’t fail, you only fail when you quit” Whatever that goal is that’s in your heart and spirit right now recognize that its so attainable but it requires that you but your big girl pants on and hang on for the long haul. GRIT. Quitting cannot be an option, so dig those heels in, get comfortable with being uncomfortable, and KEEP GOING QUEEN! You’ve got this!
Grit lets you know whether you want it bad enough or not
As the old saying goes, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. You’ve got to change your perspective on what’s happening in your life right now and view it as God making everything come together to weave a beautiful masterpiece on your behalf that has purpose attached to it. But you’ve got to be a co-creator of the greatness that is to come and not abort that mission and see this thing through. You’ve got to learn to see when you can see and look with the eyes of a hopeful, positive and ambitious visionary. You’re going to get tested but you are fully capable of passing if you only believe, put in the work and keep going.
Grit keeps your creative wheels spinning and your blessings flowing
Grit is nothing but your undying resolve to NOT QUIT and stay open to the possibilities that whatever you have to do to make this goal or dream of yours happen, it’s going to happen. Having grit in your goal digger toolkit arms you with positivity in the face of feelings of defeat, hopelessness, and depression, and keeps you open to the beautiful blessings of the journey that you are on while working towards what you want. Grit is activating the key that although you don’t know all the beautiful details right now, this dream and goal are going to come to pass. And guess what? Until it does, keep right on putting in the good work and faith in knowing that grit, your talents, and feminine magic are the tools you need to build the door you are going to sashay through and work wonders on the other side of!
