Tenacity refers to strength of purpose. It is perseverance and determination and endurance all wrapped up in stubbornness. Tenacity is the amount of resolve needed to complete any grand mission. Talent provides hope for accomplishment, but it is tenacity alone that guarantees it.
Any great task, any big dream, any worthy destination demands tenacity. Whatever God has put on your heart, whatever large vision He has placed in your spirit, you must go at it with all the tenacity of a drowning man. Never give up. Never give up. Never, ever, give up. Abraham Lincoln, who by sheer force of will power led the country through its darkest days, once said, “When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.” That is tenacity.
