I love this quote because it’s not something I can accept and take it to heart right away. In fact, it makes me think and wonder, 𝐢𝐬 𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐛𝐛𝐨𝐫𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐚𝐥𝐬𝐨 𝐝𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧? 🧐
Some times, we say a person is too stubborn to change. Still, some times that stubbornness is exactly what created some of the greatest human inventions, from the Wright Brothers’ airplane to Steve Jobs’ iPhone, 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐢𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐛𝐛𝐨𝐫𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐚𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐚 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞, “𝘚𝘵𝘰𝘱 𝘪𝘵.

After my own small transformation of life in 2013, and every time I started a new venture, no matter it’s trading, acting or real estate, inevitably, there would always be people around me giving the exact same comment, “𝘕𝘰 𝘪𝘵’𝘴 𝘵𝘰𝘰 𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘦!” 𝘰𝘳 “𝘐𝘵 𝘤𝘢𝘯’𝘵 𝘣𝘦 𝘥𝘰𝘯𝘦!” 𝘰𝘳 “𝘛𝘳𝘺… 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘪𝘧 𝘪𝘵 𝘥𝘰𝘦𝘴𝘯’𝘵 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬, 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘱 𝘪𝘵!”…🤨
Now, of course, some of the comments are from friends or love ones, and that’s usually the case because other people simply do not have time for you or do not care! 😐
But now, after years of life experiences, I do agree with this quote 100% – Stubbornness is also determination! It is exactly the same willpower of “I will never do that” to “I will never stop trying”.
I also think stubbornness is the core element of self-belief, too stubborn to think otherwise, too stubborn to not give up, and too stubborn to not believe self!
Of course, this is not to say that being stubborn = a great outcome, but it is undoubtedly to say that without determination, one can never truly achieve anything in life!
Some of the “stubborn things” that I have done
-to cut smoking, drinking, and overeating and started bodybuilding when people say I should take it slow and that it’s too many changes for my body at the same time, it can’t be done….
-to go back to acting at the age of 34 when people said I’m too old, too late….
-to learn to trade when people said I should just get a job; it’s too hard for a non-financial student like me….

-and finally, to get back to real estate in 2020, when everyone says that it’s too late, the market is too saturated, and there is no more money to be made!
Well, I guess I’m just too stubborn! 😂
So next time, if you think your friends or loved ones are also stubborn, instead of asking them to stop, simply shift their focus from stubbornness to determination!
