CHAPTER 9 - PERSISTENCE  
THE SUSTAINED EFFORT NECESSARY TO INDUCE FAITH

Hill writes "Will-power and desire, when properly combined, make an irresistible pair. Men who accumulate great fortunes are generally known as cold-blooded, and sometimes ruthless. Often they are misunderstood. What they have is will-power, which they mix with persistence, and place back of their desires to insure the attainment of their objectives."

Willpower is a powerful tool in the hands of a determined, disciplined person. It can help you confront any problem you have and adjust your lifestyle. However, willpower only takes us so far and then we always run out of our own strength. This is when it is important to have a group, a mastermind group, with whom you can share your struggle with those like-minded people who are going through the same thing.

Discipline may not be pleasant for your body while you are doing it, but you will enjoy a tremendous sense of satisfaction that comes from knowing you are making good choices to achieve your goals. If you pay the price to be disciplined, consistent and persistent now, you will enjoy great rewards later. If you don't pay the price now to do what is necessary to be done, you will suffer the consequences of an undisciplined life later. You can pay now or you can pay later, but at some point, we all reap the harvest of the choices we have made along the way.

Kathleen Genevieve Ledecky, the freestyle American swimming sensation stated, with confidence, after unexpectedly winning a gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics as a 15-year-old,"I knew if I put my mind to it, I could do it, I trained and worked hard for it." With all the demands of her training, she admits, there is no time for socializing or dating. "Katie", as she is fondly known, refused to give up or ease on the determination and discipline that would yield success to her efforts later on.

If you want to see your network marketing blossom into successful enterprise in the future, start desciplining yourself toward it now by using the MFF tools consistently and later you will enjoy the fruit of it. Hill states that there may be no heroic connotation to the word "persistence," but the quality is to the character of man or woman what carbon is to steel. Persistence is the fifth and final pillar of self-discipline that induces faith and confidence.

"Failure" cannot cope with "Persistence" - Hill.
