“FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again….even though every time you’ve tried before you’ve lost.” –Taylor Swift

In January, I noted after the Golden Globe Awards that Matthew McConaughey won the Golden Globe for a movie that was rejected 86 times! And Sunday night, he won the Oscar.

A subject that can’t be revisited too many times, especially in the case of living a life of dreams:


— adj

1.     holding or grasping firmly

2.     retentive

3.     stubborn or persistent

4.     holding together firmly; tough or cohesive

5.     tending to stick or adhere

If there were one thing that, one day, people would remark that YOU brought about in the face of XX number of defeats, losses, rejections or trials, what would that one thing be?

What are you going to do today so that they can one day say that?

Got tenacity?

“There are times in life when people must know when not to let go. Balloons are designed to teach small children this.” –Terry Pratchett
