Monday Morning Motivation – Through

(Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially)

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement — along with a good cup of coffee! — to start the day.

Hopefully the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week.  Please feel free to forward the newsletter on to others that you think would benefit from the content.


There are two main ways you can look at “through”

  • I’m through with things – finished and give up
  • I’m going to get through things – persevere and get through the bad

Each day way have to face a number of personal and professional challenges.  Some days we don’t have any idea how we will face all of them.  And yet each day we do indeed get through them.  Sometimes via giving up; and, sometimes, via persevering and facing the hard issues.

While sometimes giving up IS the best approach, I’d argue that in the vast majority of the cases persevering and working through the issues is the better choice.  Unfortunately it is often also the more difficult, more painful, and more time consuming choice.  That is why pushing through is so rarely chosen any more.

That brings us to this week’s question:

  • As you look at the biggest challenge you face are you going to declare that you are through (finished) with it, or are you going to push through (persevere) it?

Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning and I wish you all the best for the week.
