Here's today's question: When do patience, persistence, and determination morph into stubbornness?
How do we mark that boundary between hitting our heads against the wall and giving up too soon?
An interesting and important question, right?
On the one side strength, on the other side rigidity…

FEEL THE DIFFERENCE!
Here's an interesting way of thinking about these feelings:
Persistence, patience and determination have a certain 'color' and 'sound' - a feeling of 'Yes!
Stubbornness is a different 'color'.
Can you let yourself experience that difference?
Imagine giving a color to each of these emotional states.
What would it be?
Now imagine giving them a sound.
Try this until you hit something that feels right.
Try humming it.
The idea is that the sound or color becomes almost automatic, and gives you an emotional heads up.
The goal is to help you experience when you shift from healthy and strong to rigid and stultifying.
