The distinction between hardheaded vs. strong minded is important. Hardheaded has a lot to do with attitude . . . “I am right and this is the way I’m doing things.” A strong mind, on the other hand, is not wrapped up in ego, is willing to change plans if their circumstances change, and embraces failure as a way of learning to become stronger.
Matthew 7:16-20 strong minded
You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.
Strong minded, to me is much more about perseverance and humility. Its saying that I am going to move forward towards my goal no matter what, and that I am willing to listen to others and admit when my ideas and attempts have been wrong. When a person is strong-minded, they have the energy and stamina to face a challenge without being robbed of inner strength.
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, [do] all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Confidence, Courage, Commitment, Control, Purpose, Perseverance, Determination and Persistence…
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth [it] not, to him it is sin.
I think some people get in trouble when they believe that admitting mistakes is a form of being weak-minded or even weak in general. Yet, if you are willing to admit failures and mistakes and keep pressing forward to correct your wrong. This behavior would prove yourself to be strong a minded person.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
