The Year of a Mindful Career: Fortitude

Fortitude: courage, bravery, endurance, resilience, mettle, moral fiber, strength of mind, strength of character, backbone, spirit and grit.

The meanings go on and on.

What a beautiful word, filled with inspiration.

How am I choosing fortitude as an inspiration and approach today?

Well, when it came time to step into a project that was daunting, but needed to be done, I thought of this brilliant word and how it applies to me.

I would love to hear someone say that I approached a project with fortitude. Maybe they have. But what’s most important is that I believe I have.

I’ve chosen to hang this word on my wall of inspiration.

It reminds me of Mother Theresa, Joan of Arc, Rosa Parks, Sally Ride and Babe Didrikson.

The list goes on and on.

And while I’ll never be in the likes of these women of fortitude, I will always have them as inspiration.

When I think of all that they’ve done and how they demonstrated fortitude, my challenges become very small.

What a beautiful word, filled with inspiration.
