Such a simple word. Only two syllables and yet the definition is much more complex. When you go to the Oxford dictionary, the definition is listed as, “the state of being seriously mentally ill; madness.” The definition, originally a mental health term, is now only relegated to legal battles and extreme workout programs.
However, when most people are asked what the definition of insanity is, most people will respond with the same statement: “Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over, expecting different results.” The phrase, attributed to Einstein, Franklin, and Twain is so commonly known that everyone uses that as the generally accepted definition.
So when I ask you: “Steadfastness in doing something, despite difficulty or delay in achieving success” is the definition of what word, everyone here should say:
Perseverance. Confused? It’s okay, just keep trying…
