In today’s episode we need to talk about toughness. It’s not the capacity to deny emotion but rather the ability to press on and persevere when things are hard. There are so many times in life when what need to do is push forward and hang in there but it’s often at these moments that people give in, walk away or allow themselves to be distracted. Toughness is simply the ability to endure hard times and to keep doing the things that need to be done, regardless of how we feel at any given moment. In this message I want to encourage us all to choose to be tough when it matters and not to settle for mediocrity and a life of half efforts.
