“The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity."
- Amelia Earhart
I love this quote! Of course, I bring my own baggage to interpreting it. I assume, for example, that the ‘act’ being decided is a worthy one – steeped in love and courage. But I really do agree that love, tenacity and flexibility of mind can help one approach almost any challenge.
Why flexibility of mind? Sometimes the approach we take simply doesn’t work, no matter how tenacious we are. At that point we need to let go of that approach and try something different.
Are you having difficulty acting on something important? If so, what do you need to make you more certain? And if your uncertainty is because you feel there are huge road blocks in your way, is there a different approach you might take?
