Persistence can be good or bad. I’m talking about the good. The power that drives you to completion of a goal or objective or project.
Robert Lewis Stevenson worked hard everyday even though he said that he never was well one day in his life. He said that if he didn’t get out of bed and get to work that nothing would be accomplished.
Adolph Hitler was persistent in not ever forgetting his past and the screwy concepts that went with it. His legacy was murder and mayhem and cruelty, the most deadly man that ever lived. Only idiots and vicious schemers followed him (most all of Germany).
In Japan I loved to watch the jugglers who do unimaginably feats. When you see them, you know that it took them years to learn their tricks. I could never juggle even three balls. However, my son Barry is much more persistent and juggling was conquered. (In Korea at a USO show in the rear, a young juggler juggled seven (7) balls in the air. Then he said, “Do you want to see nine (9) balls?” Of course we did. We raised a big ruckus to see that performance. He showed us a picture of nine (9) balls in the air.)
