How's Your Endurance?

How's your new year going so far? It's day three and I'm sure that some people have already abandoned some resolutions they made just a few short days ago. That thought led me to the word for today: Endurance.

Your success is directly tied to your ability to endure.  When you feel like giving up, abandoning your plan, or letting your success slip away, you have a decision to make.  Do you throw in the towel or do you endure? Endurance is defined: the ability or strength to continue or last, despite fatigue, stress, or other adverse conditions.

Is this what you exhibit when your goals come up against a challenge?  If you are working to get out of debt, do you endure passing on those new shoes, saying no to a night out with friends, and giving up your daily latte? Looking to improve your fitness level? Are you willing to endure working out regularly, cutting back on calories and getting enough rest?

What about other people's opinions? When you are ready to do something great, there will be some that won't agree with you, who may even try to hold you back. Will you be able to endure - stand strong - perhaps even distance yourself from those people?

Yep - it's day 3 of the new year and some people have already abandoned their resolutions.  Are you one of them?
