CHAPTER 9  -  PERSISTENCE

 

Mr. Hill says persistence is the sustained effort necessary to induce faith.  PERSISTENCE CREATES FAITH.  And 

faith is the only known antidote for failure, it is the starting point of all accumulation of riches, and it is the only agency 

through which one can tap the force of Infinite Intelligence.

 

Persistence is a state of mind, therefore, I can control it.  Since I now know HOW to think and not WHAT to think, I

can do anything.  Including being persistent.  Of the eight factors of persistence, I am good on most of them, but 

there are a few I need to work on.  Of the sixteen symptoms of lack of persistence, I must admit I am suffering 

on a few, but I am AWARE of the ones I struggle with and that is huge.  Awareness of things you want to change

is key to overcoming those things.

 

I can be persistent. I am a cancer survivor and I had to be pretty persistent while I was fighting for my life during the

34 out of 36 chemotherapy treatments I completed.  But I did it and I am alive and well.  So I can be just as

persistent in reaching my dream.  I know in my heart that I have a purpose on this earth and I will not stop until

I realize and fulfill that purpose.  I'm so happy to be on this journey with Michael & Linda and the Mentoring For Free

team.  You guys make the journey just as wonderful as the goal is going to be.  Maybe the journey is the best part

of it all.

 

How different would YOU LIVE your life if you knew you couldn't fail?
