Persistence pays

Posted on

We have all been there: We just want to give up. The effort feels too great, the will to small. Some minutes ago, I found an encouraging article about persuasion. What I really liked about it, was the paragraph about persistence. Persistence is our strongest weapon, and we all need to remind ourselves of that every now and again.
