I was part of a lunch with Dave Ramsey today. One thing he said was such a freeing thought. He said, “You cannot control the bell curve.” In other words, don’t worry about what people do with what you say. You just need to say it. Once it’s out of your hands it’s out of your hands. We worry way too much about the outcomes we cannot control.No matter how God-ordained your vision is, there will also be the 16% laggards who won’t get on board right away. It’s the categorization of adopters. Don’t get discouraged by that. Just realize that everybody has a different time line. Everything passes through everybody’s personality in different ways.
