“Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity.”
— Louis Pasteur, Chemist and Microbiologist

Bound, bound, bound and re-bound…

It looks great in stories.  I get tears in my eyes when I watch a movie where someone overcomes massive odds and breaks through to success.  If the moment of victory is played in slow-motion and set to some 80’s rock tune, I’ll probably just break down in full-out weeping 🙂

OK, so that’s the fun part of tenacity–the stories and the memories.  The tough part, the important part is happening RIGHT NOW.  It’s now, when we want to let go and take the path of less resistance…I mean, everybody else seems to be, right?

Hold on, my fellow Jackalopes (and encourage me to do the same!).  The stories around a campfire will be all the more glorious for those who conquer their own fear and confusion.

Make it a great day (and have some fun, too)!
