from “I Still Dream About You”
Some might call it being stubborn, some might recognize it as focus while others have said I’m tenacious. Whichever the interpretation, I have developed the discipline to see things through.
When I was in my thirties I overhead my father tell my aunt, “. . . we’d just tell Sharyn it can’t be done and she’d always manage to accomplish it.”
So was I born with the trait to complete projects or did I learn to become disciplined? I think it is both but I have had to work on the focus when it comes to taking on tasks I don’t enjoy. But then I imagine everyone does as well.
There are many ways of motivating yourself to achieve your goals and dreams. I believe it depends on the individual, but I love the sense of accomplishment. That is the major factor in what drives me to be disciplined enough to get things done.
When I look back at each year, I love taking the time to acknowledge all that I have learned, all that I have accomplished and give myself the credit for doing so.
