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?
