Are you following the Olympics? When we talk about the best athletes in the world, we admire them at least as much for their perseverance – what it took to get them here – as we do for the remarkable athletic prowess they display in competition.
Victory is due at least as much to perseverance in the face of obstacles as it is anything else.
What’s interesting is that when we think about persevering to accomplish a goal (think: conquering trichotillomania) many of us associate it with pain and sacrifice. This is probably why a lot of us quit before we reach the finish line.
Last week, we introduced you to Katie, a young lady who had written to us late in December of last year. We were so impressed with the courage and the resolve shown by a mere 15-year-old, we wrote to her, asking her permission to share it here at our blog site, and with the thousands of our followers at our Facebook Page and our Twitter feed. (See Part I: Commitment in Action – The Inspiring Story of Katie here.)
Empowerment Starts with Commitment to An Outcome.
This week, we’d like to share with you our response to her.
