Is being headstrong a good quality?
I say YES!
Sometimes, when I was young, I’d have a fit if I was having a hard time with my homework, hitting the right note on my violin, or trying to get the shading just right on an art project.
My Gram used to say,
“Susie, you can do anything if you put your mind to it.”
I didn’t understand what she meant by that. I pictured placing my head on my math worksheet and suddenly getting all the answers right, which made no sense.
But today, it makes perfect sense.
Gram knew I was headstrong when I wanted to be, so she nudged me to apply myself.
WE grow up, and somewhere along the way, we lose that headstrong edge.
What if we PRACTICED being headstrong?
What if we made it our goal to be headstrong?
What if we made up our minds that we were going to do X, Y, and Z, and nothing was going to stop us.
Unstoppable, laser-focused, and driven.
These are all great qualities to have when you are chasing a goal.
You know, you can’t reach any goal without a powerful mindset.
Now here’s a secret.
Your goal must be something that lights wildfires in your heart.
Because you won’t pull out all the stops to accomplish things that don’t really matter to you.
