7. The Right Kind of Stubborn
Later that night I went to the gym.  I saw a man who looked like he might be 90 walking the track, his face a mask of grim determination.  I went to ride the stationary bike.  When I saw him later he was just finishing his walk.  He caught my eye, and said, “Two miles, and not a foot less!”

I said, “Hope I’m still coming here when I’m you’re age.”

“You will if you’re the right kind of stubborn. I’m stubborn about loving God, country, and my wife, and about getting my walk in.  I’m not stubborn about being right or having my way.  That’s why I never had a heart attack, high blood pressure, or ulcers.”

Today I will try to be the right kind of stubborn.
