How Many Times Will You Try

“Heroes and conquerors have often been possessed with a sense of destiny which they were to fulfill. This idea of destiny once embraced, as it is the natural sense of the effect of power, so in its turn adds greatly to it. The person as soon as he regards himself as predestined to achieve some great object, acts with so much greater force and constancy for the attainment of it: he is not divided by doubts, or weakened by fears; he believes fully that he shall succeed, and that belief is the greatest assistance to success.

The idea of a destiny in a considerable degree fulfills itself.”

Loraine Boettner, The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination
