“Enthusiasm is common. But endurance, is rare.” – Angela Duckworth
How often do we see a friend start a goal, only to fall off in a matter of weeks (maybe days)? Enthusiasm or motivation is quick to come by, but also quick to go.
Motivation and short term goals can’t change us. They can’t even move us. What does, are reasons. It’s not the goal of “losing 5 pounds” that drives her forward… it’s because she wants to set the example to her daughter that we’re not “genetically pre-determined” to be overweight, even if the entire family has always been.
Reasons are what wakes us up in the morning. Reasons are what drives us to go the extra mile. It’s where we draw our endurance from.
Goals and enthusiasm aren’t wrong to have, but they can’t be our backbone. Enthusiasm can be broken. Reasons on the other hand, are impenetrable.
