How tenacious are you?


I love sharing my thoughts with you here on this blog. It’s a wonderful opportunity to connect outside of my speaking engagements and books. Another thing I love is my daily Minute with Maxwell. If you’re not aware of it, Minute with Maxwell is a daily short video in which I speak on a word or concept that I think will add value to you. It’s easy to sign up. Just visit the John Maxwell Team site and sign up with your email address. You’ll receive the video each day in your inbox for free!

Here’s today’s Minute, for a sample of what I try to offer to help you grow a little every day. Today’s word is TENACIOUS:

I hope that inspired you to “hold on” for just a little longer in the areas where you’re growing. And if you’re interested in knowing more about my coaching certification training program (the event where I recorded that video), please visit¬†¬† for more information. We have another training event coming up in February, 2013, and I’d love to have you on my team!

    Hi, agree John, hold until success but sometimes we need to know how to give up as well. As Seth Godin in his book – The Dip – A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick).

    Sometimes, maybe our goals are not aligned with God’s goals, or our goals are totally not what God wants us to achieve. Charles F. Stanley has a great book called “Success God’s Way”

    As a Christian, we need to have a goal which bless and help others and must be aligned with God’s goals.

    Hey John,

    Thanks for this awesome “Minute with Maxwell.” While I wasn’t taught to be tenacious, I have become better in this area by learning how to stick things out on my own.

    My goal is to become a published author and renowned speaker. My not being there yet only lets me know that I still have much to learn.

    It has taken me longer than I would have liked to finish writing my first book, but everyday brings me closer and closer to accomplishing what I set out to do.

    You’ve inspired me today with this sharpening message. Thank you. Blessings.

    That’s a good word, John. Thanks for the encouragement!
