I just read once again the oft-repeated line, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” (To be fair, the person I just read it from said “a” definition, attributing the phrase to Einstein)
I’ve heard this time and again in sermons, and it makes me wonder if people a) fact-check their stuff before they go on stage, and b) if any of these preachers every played sports. I spent hours after basketball practice shooting the exact same way, hundreds of times. Not only did I expect different results as time passed, I actually got them.
Anyway, there are situations where that sentiment is valid. But in most cases, persistence and consistency eventually pay off.
