Nancy McLoughlin, while attending numerous seminars on people skills, never received a satisfactory answer on why some people achieve success in life and others don’t. As she prayed, studied God’s word, and worked closely with struggling adults and children, the missing piece became clear. She discovered that many unsuccessful people share the same issue: a lazy mind protected by stubbornness. Ms. McLoughlin’s book describes a lazy mind, what causes it, and how it produces a stubborn refusal to engage in any kind of positive change that requires effort. Fortunately, there is a cure for a lazy mind, and Nancy details it in the final chapter of “The Art of Stubbornness.”
