Longevity Hack: #2 of 5 Anti-Aging Secrets

Get Your Stubborn On

We often associate stubbornness with the aging grandma who refuses to give up driving, . . . or the spouse who constantly locks himself out of the house yet still chooses not to put a spare key underneath the mat in the garage. But a determination to stay the course and a refusal to change an attitude about something despite what others might say isn’t always a bad thing. The athlete who got cut from the varsity team for two years and then finally made it because he refused to give up is remarkably stubborn. So is the runner who insists on the same trail run each morning in snow and rain and heat and the gloom of night. In these cases, stubbornness is inspiring. Your stubbornness is a longevity friend.
