I have never been a quitter. I like to finish what I start no matter what. However, life has a way of presenting challenges that seem like formidable obstacles. These challenges seem to all occur at the same time to add to the pressure. Pressure produces diamonds, but it also busts pipes. Are you a diamond or a pipe? Do you have the grit to see it through? Do you have the perspective to see beyond the moment? Grit is not learned. Either you have it or you don’t. Grit is the courage to face your challenges head on and persevere.
