So I have a new favorite word, guys…
It’s got a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
Tenacity (n.): The quality or state of being tenacious (Gee, thanks, Merriam-Webster dictionary, for nothing)
Tenacious (adj.): stubborn or persistent (Much better)
So why do I like this word so much? Why did I take the time to write a freaking post about just one single word?
BECAUSE IT’S IMPORTANT.
Now, more than ever, it’s important for us to be tenacious.
As members of Gen Y, as Millennials, as young professionals, too many people will doubt us.
Too many people will want us to fail.
Too many people will tell us that we can’t.
But you know what?
We can accomplish so much if we’re stubborn.
We can accomplish so much if we’re persistent.
I’m sure you do too.
So don’t give up.
And don’t listen to people who shoot down your dreams.
We have the ability to make a difference. We have the ability to do amazing things.
So let’s do them.
Let’s be tenacious, and prove everyone wrong.
And when things don’t go exactly as planned, just remember…
