Tenacity And Follow Up – Do They Matter?

Tenacity and Follow Up – Do They Matter?

Most folks don’t know that during the last few years, I have been working behind the scenes to earn the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation.  As a fourteen year member of the National Speakers Association and past-president of the Philadelphia Chapter, earning the CSP is an accomplishment among public speakers.

Only a little more than 10% of speakers worldwide hold this credential and the good news is that the  National Speakers Association recently confirmed mine.

Think about your own past accomplishments.  What enabled you to hang in there till the end?

I bet our answers are similar. Tenacity. Being determined and persistent.

Historically, some of the world’s biggest successes occurred due to those who persisted in the midst of overwhelming odds.

People possess potential that transcend their own understanding.  It’s important to act.

Yes, it takes courage to step outside your comfort zone and stir the latent potential.  And yes, there is no guarantee of success.

One thing is certain; the journey toward worthy goals equip a person for future success.  It may not happen right away, but I have learned that persistence pays off.

People possess potential that transcend their own understanding.

Here’s something else you may not know.  The CSP designation would never have happened if I didn’t follow up to ask a few questions about my submission.

That’s right.  Disciplined follow up paid off big time.

Never give up.  And always follow up.

My journey is still in play.  Onward.
