There is no person on earth who does not want to improve their lives. But how do we actually do that? We take on resolutions, make plans and embark on journeys, however they often don’t last very long. Is there a formula for true and sustainable growth?
Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson in a new seven-part series, 7 Weeks to a Better You, and discover a 3334-year-old time-tested plan to evaluate and develop your tremendous emotional potential. In this series you will learn the seven facets of your emotional attributes that define the spectrum of your personality, you will gain a clear picture — an “x-ray” — of your inner psyche, and how to harness and enhance the forces that make you tick.
In part 4, you will explore endurance — the attribute that defines fortitude and ambition and combines determination and tenacity. How strong is your endurance? When you commit to something do you always see it through? When faced with challenges do you often retreat, or do you face the obstacle head on and fight until you succeed?
Ambition and drive – the drive for excellence – are human traits ingrained within each of us. We all want to succeed. We all want to accomplish our goals. Yet, once the inspiration fades or we hit a setback we may be inclined to raise the white flag and move on. Let us discuss how we can improve these characteristics within us, and how we can channel our determination. In life even when you are committed to great things there will be ups and downs, twists and turns along the way, and it is the level of your endurance, your conviction, that will be the key to success in achieving the objectives you set out to do.
