[00:00:43] Waceke Wambaa – Host introduction to the show.
[00:01:06] Reflection Question for today’s show: What goal or objective are you determined to see completed in your life for today this week, month, this year and beyond? Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of tenacity.
[00:02:19] Summary of tie-in with prior episodes on decision-making, we had started in episode three with that whole four-inch heel saga thing. And then in the previous episode, episode four, we talked about how just being bold enough to take that first step in making some important life decisions has to be started, but it can only be started by you.
[00:2:42] What quality or character attribute keeps us on that path to do what needs to be done, to see the fruits of that decision come to pass. How do we determine determination?
[00:03:50] Some of the pearls of wisdom in learning how to live with victory in mind can be found in conversations and observations of people who have walked this earth long enough to have experiences that are often only unearthed with the passage of time.
[00:05:18] How did those who have come before us stay the course? How and why did they stay committed to those decisions that they made?
[00:05:35] Beyond social norms and patterns, I think it’s so fascinating to find out what helped fuel and fashion these commitments of the older generation, that have held so strong or seemingly become stronger over the decades. One of my favorite things to do in feeding this hunger to hear more and to learn more of these stories was found, especially when I practice physical therapy or physiotherapy.
[00:07:46] It was fascinating to hear how they had had life challenges, but they decided to stay the course of their marriages. They were determined to continue with that commitment. It was because they were committed and everything that they did, they did unto the commitment.
[00:09:24] And so you’d see that they would have a tenacity to fight through some of the hardships that they were facing.
[00:11:04] Part of living with victory in mind means that as we make decisions, we make a determination to stay the course. To be tenacious. To see the fruition of this decision made. Because it’s often in the refining of time, the passage of time that we discover the priceless worth of that decision we decided to make way back when.
[00:12:38] Today’s episode is a charge. A charge to remind us all about being tenacious, once we make that decision, whatever the decision may be. To stay the course till the very end.
[00:13:29] Key pillars to being tenacious. Discovering willpower to succeed. That you would chew on these charges. Marinate on them. And then, stand up and do you!
[00:16:07] And when it feels like you can’t take one step further, when it’s another door slammed in your face, another let down. Another beat down. Another something. Get up! Get up! You can do it!
Your life and what you believe you were created to be and to do is not a mistake. You are not a mistake.
[00:16:32] Don’t quit. You have come this far.
[00:16:57] Reflection question repeated.

ViM - Episode 5 |4 key pillars to being tenacious. Discovering willpower to succeed[:
You have a future. You have a hope, so don't give up.[:[:
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, tenacity is the quality or state of being tenacious. Helps, right? Don't you just love it when the definition of a word tells you not much about it.[:[:[:
[00:2:42] So now, today, the question that begs to be asked, once you and I embark on a decision, once we start, what quality or character attribute keeps us on that path to do what needs to be done, to see the fruits of that decision come to pass. How do we determine determination?[:[:
In other words, passage of time typically equates to the older generation. Now, forgive me if this sounds offensive, but I mean it as a highest compliment. The older generation, those who are 70 80, 90 and beyond, they are our walking time capsules. That means that, why do we have to read from a history book, when there are those around us who are living and breathing vaults of history, knowledge. They are 3d man, not just the two D pen and paper, but they're 3d and beyond.[:[:[:[:[:[:[:[:[:[:[:[:[:
That you would chew on these charges. Marinate on them. And then, stand up and do you![:
It implies firmness of mind and will in the face of danger or extreme difficulty.
May you find the courage to say yes. To say no. To stay the course. To know when to say, this is enough.[:
Mettle suggests an ingrained capacity for meeting strain or difficulty with fortitude and resilience.
When you are facing a difficult situation, may you find that extra gear in you, not to quit. May you find the resilience to make it to the finishing line. No matter what stage in the marathon of your life, you find yourself in.[:
Spirit also suggests a quality of temperament, enabling one to hold one's own or keep up one's morale when opposed or threatened.
May your strength rise when it feels like you have no strength left to give. May you find inner peace when the tension to break feel stronger than that surety, you will make it. Stay the course. Do not quit. Rest is just around the corner.[:
Resolution stresses firm determination, to achieve one's ends.
May you find that inner strength and courage, our pioneer and fathers and mothers, sons, and daughters had to dream us into the lives we lead today. May that firm determination to finish what you started not be derailed, but prevail all the way to the end.[:
Your life and what you believe you were created to be and to do is not a mistake. You are not a mistake.[:
Tenacity will not look the same for everyone of us. So do you.[:
Are you resolute? That quality of stubborn persistence to achieve that which you are focused on?
Are you tenacious? Live with victory in mind.[:
