No quote today. I'm musing over the difference, if any, between perseverance and stubbornness. I believe, and have the support of many a successful individual, that perseverance is a HUGE portion of reaching goals and achieving dreams. You don't do the work, you won't have the payoff. It's that easy. Quitting is failure, period.
But stubbornness.... It's the part of us that wants to flip the bird at those people who say we can't achieve our dreams. It's the part of us that says "I'll show them," when we feel ignored and overlooked. It's the pursing of lips and the drawing deep within to succeed, no matter what other people may or may not say or do. Stubbornness is perseverance with attitude.
