Ever been in a situation where you or someone you know where stuck? The solution just wouldn’t come? It seemed hopeless?

There was the desire to give up. To stay there’s no solution to this problem.

What if, instead of giving up, we began looking at these type of situations in a different light? As an opportunity to learn. To discover new ways of thinking and to move forward?

How could this change your life?

Getting Away From Giving Up

Giving up can be easy for me. Do you find the same to be true for you?

Are you ready to throw in the towel when the times get tough? Are you ready to move away from the give it up attitude?

I am and I hope you’ll join me on the journey. I’m not perfect in this area, not even close. But I know that we have to get away from giving up so easily.

As a leader, you’ve probably experienced times of feeling down and out. Like you couldn’t go on anymore.

You just wanted to give up and throw in the towel. But you know better.

You’re a leader who is persistent. You’re a leader who is resilient. You’re a leader who is determined.

You’re a fighting leader.

Your time as a fighter will require three traits:

  • Persistence
  • Resilience
  • Determination
