CHAPTER 9 PERSISTENCE
It is amazing to me that every time I read this book I learn something new. I have always thought being persistent
was just being able to keep going until you get the job done. But now I realize there is a lot more to it. I believe the
most important thing is to have the right state of mind, to stop all the chatter and focus on what you are really wanting
to accomplish. I know what I want now. I want to provide a better life for my family, especially for my kids, I don't want
them to go through life like I did before finding Mentoring For Free. I want them to have a positive attitude, I want
them to be happy and enjoy life, and I want them to NEVER STOP DREAMING!!! This is my goal and I will make sure
this happens, no matter what it takes! I will not let any of us go through life any longer without everyone hearing our music!
After really looking over and thinking about the eight factors of persistence that Mr. Hill gave us in this chapter, I realize
there are several of these I need to work on to become truly persistent. But I will get there because I'm never going to
quit anything again! There is nothing I cannot do after I set my mind to it!
Thank you Michael & Linda and everyone at Mentoring For Free for reminding me of this.
