THE TRUTH ABOUT TENACITY+

i_love_tenacity_walldecal-r832ab5f21ca94ce59adc6d5e942af7dc_8veny_8byvr_324

Tenacity: n. determined and persistent and persevering in pursuing a goal(s)

 

A tenacious human is an extremist who pursues a goal(s) with determination, persistence, and perseverance. When others have given up long ago the tenacious human is still at it refusing to give up or switch to another course of action. 

Tenaciousness can be confused with stubbornness which is a reluctance to change course once you have made a decision to pursue a course of action even though objectively you should change course.

A truly tenacious human is not really acting stubbornly because to him or her there are still objective reasons to pursue the goal(s).

THE TRUTH ABOUT URGING*

 

download

Urge: v. to try to intensely and persistently persuade a human(s) to do a subset(s) and/or to impulsively relatively infrequently intensely desire to do a subset(s)

 

Urging on someone who is reluctant to do something is sometimes a frustrating impossible task, especially if it has to do with a new food or going against a strong opinion. We all try to urge our offspring to eat their vegies but sometimes with little success unless we flavor it up with a favorite dressing.

 

Sometimes persistent urging pays of and the human just gets tired of the nagging and gives in and does what he or she was urged to do in the first place.

 

There is a fine line between urging and nagging because nagging is an annoying form of urging which is excessive and unpleasant to hear. We usually urge humans to do something which should be good for them and not something which they are categorically against and consider bad which is what nagging frequently is.

 

Sometimes we have an intense internal urge to do something which is our mind is saying do this as soon as possible. Once again there is a fine line between your mind urging you to do something relatively infrequently which is a little bit different from an addiction which is a constant urge to want to drink alcoholic beverages.

 

In effect you can urge others to do something or your mind can be urging you to do something.

THE TRUTH ABOUT COMMITMENT

commitment-means-staying-loyal

Commitment: n. attaching to a goal(s) for duration

The most popular form of commitment is a marriage commitment and many women are having a hard time getting their boyfriends to commit to marriage. Marriage is a serious long duration commitment and if a man is getting sex for free and going out with someone who may not be his ideal for a marital partner then he may be reluctant to commit his financial resources to a woman with offspring or potential offspring which are an additional serious responsibility. Many couples are not in a secure financial situation and commitment is out of the question for many.

Commitment to a career is another popular form of commitment and sometimes too large a dedication to career may make for rather bad relationships with spouse and family.

There are short duration commitments to goals and long duration commitments. Modern humans are having most problems with long duration commitments to more useful education, marriage, and careers which technology is rapidly changing and making many jobs very different or even obsolete.

Long duration commitments take much determination, persistence, and perseverance or tenacity which requires much self-motivation and many give up easily if the going gets rough or there are too many failures along the way.

One frequently overlooked commitment is to a lifetime of learning new useful knowledge and skills which can come in very handy when opportunity knocks. You will have prepared yourself to seize that opportunity and prosper.

THE TRUTH ABOUT EFFORT

effort-determines-your-success

Effort: n. investing time and energy and mental ability in achieving a goal(s)

We have sometimes been told that we are not putting enough effort into what we are doing. What does it really mean?

 

It means that we didn’t invest enough of our time, energy, and mental ability in trying to achieve the goal(s).

 

Mental ability is the only question mark because mental skills vary from human to human. Some are more logical than others and have more reasoning ability. Others have emotional strength or ability and will passionately and optimistically pursue a goal(s) through difficult times. Mental ability frequently means having the knowledge, emotional and logical tenacity to pursue a goal(s) until it is achieved.

 

Investing energy also sometimes means investing physical strength in an effort to do something and we may just be inadequate physically to achieve a goal(s) which requires great strength.

 

Given enough time most goal(s) can be achieved through persistent, determined, and persevering effort with the right human connections. Unfortunately most of us are constrained by not enough time or being too busy and don’t put enough time into many worthwhile goal(s) which frequently remain unachieved.

 

Some of us put in much effort just living day to day without conscious long duration goals and the result is that one day is much like another day without any major changes. Most live life without putting in much difficult effort unless it is doing difficult work on the job. The result is frequently that few worthwhile truly important goals in life are achieved or accomplished.

 

At one extreme there are the workaholics and at the other the lazy bums and most of us fall in somewhere in between the two extremes. The former put in much effort and the latter put in relatively little effort.

 

There is physical and mental effort and most useful jobs in society are increasingly requiring more mental than physical effort.

 

As a semi-retired human I am finding out that I am putting in much more mental than physical effort to live life and it is something which I highly recommend for retired humans. When you can no longer exercise your body that well then at least exercise your brain by learning new knowledge and mental skills to keep you young and vital mentally.

One of the things needed for a fulfilling life is maintaining a busy life as long as you can even though in your retirement years it should be a busy mental life with moderate exercise.

Finally effort alone will sometimes not achieve a goal(s) and the right tools, information, human connections, or goods and an investment of money is also needed.

THE TRUTH ABOUT DETERMINATION

Determination-Quotes

Determination: n. having very intense persistence and perseverance

A determined human puts in much energy, effort, frequently tries to achieve a goal, sometimes suffers many failures, and frequently perseveres or does so for a long duration until a goal(s) is achieved. You can even think of a determined human as one who is sometimes stubborn about reaching a goal(s).

Stubborn: adj. refusing to change when an objective fact(s) demands change

Persistence: n. frequently trying to achieve a goal(s) and is a subset of perseverance and the deviation from the perseverance norm is rather large and frequently much less than a lifetime.

Perseverance: n. extreme persistence in trying to achieve a goal(s) and pursuing it much beyond the point where cloose to100% of people would stop
