In my Mary Kay world, things are going quite well, thank God. I have now become used to people saying to me ‘you don’t have to worry about that, after all you are a ‘TOP’ director…’. I believe hearing this so often is the reason I have the word TOP so strong on my mind. I found myself asking, ‘What keeps you at the TOP of your game?’ in this series, which I promise to try to keep at 1minute each, I will be talking about how to get to and stay on TOP.

Today’s letter is T, T for Tenacity! What comes to mind when you hear that word? I guess its dictionary time. The dictionary says tenacity is the quality of holding on, holding together, cohesive and not being easily pulled apart. Even as I write, I am encouraged by the strength depicted by this word.

I see Tenacity as the glue that holds you to your dreams. The reality is you can’t really reach the top of your industry/field if you don’t have the give-it-all-I‘ve-got-at-all-cost attitude. When you start out with any goal, giving yourself a ‘no way out’ card, you find creative ways to make your dream become a reality. Stick to your goal and give it EVERYTHING and you have a chance at staying on TOP!

tie a knot and hang on.”
