Have you ever wondered how you would ever succeed? Stick-to-it-iveness – you’ve got to stick to it, to persevere. Today I was reading in the bible, and this verse leapt out at me:
Deuteronomy 20:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 And the officers shall speak further unto the people, and they shall say, What man is there that is fearful and fainthearted? let him go and return unto his house, lest his brethren’s heart faint as well as his heart.
It brought to mind that old supposedly Chinese proverb:
Sometimes we need to turn away the nay-sayers – those who say it can’t be done, because without meaning to, they can undermine our efforts and our stick-to-it-iveness!
