Perseverance with a positive attitude and Passion

Perseverance with a positive attitude and Passion are key ingredients that will fuel success!
I've made this statement because for the past 3 months I've been seeking to make a huge career change.
I worked within the Educational Industry for 10 years and loved it, then the itch for something new resurfaced 3 months ago.
It was time to get back into the Financial industry, but being inactive for 10 years wasn't that good, but I decided to go for it anyways.
After 3 months of researching for the right company that would fit my overall goals, values etc. I found it...completed the 4 stages of interviewing and testing, and landed the job!!! Yippee!!

Through this journey, I've learnt that despite the times where I was discouraged, second guessing my decision and fighting to stay positive, and tempted to settle for less than the best, I dug deep, and fought hard to stay persistent and positive, and it was worth the wait and then some.

This same principle is also applicable to our personal fitness journey - make a plan, persevere through the tough times, stay positive and fuel the passion in all you do, and soon enough you'll get there!
Don't ever quit, sell yourself short, give in or give up - you are so worth it!

DIANE! I agree 100% and am so glad I read this. I needed this reminder. With money (and men lol), I have been so tempted to settle for less than the best (and have in the past), but not anymore. This was a really cool post to read. Congratulations on your new job!!!

Since we're kicking back into group mode, I wanted to wish you continued success before "the storm" sets in a few hours. :)

Suzette:Passion comes from something you believe in, love and willing to do whatever it takes to live by or work for.
