When a child tries to put one foot in front of the other he falls. Then he gets up and tries again. Children are definitely born with Persistency.
How sad that a lot of us lose it along the way as we grow up. I remember being extremely persistent as a child. I also remember extremely well the criticism as I started expressing my dreams and goals for my future.
I have never stop being persistent. I would actually say that it is one of my qualities. However reading this chapter made me realized that I am only persistent at things that will not bring me criticism from other.
I am persistent at going to work, brushing my teeth, cleaning the house. All things that will keep the critics silent.
Several times in my life I have tried to reach the starts and go for the moon. Each time I was criticized and each time I stop short of my goals.
Being critiqued has stopped me in my tracks more time than I can count.
Reading this chapter (which no doubt was reading about me and FOR me) made me realized that I need to reset the clock and give it one more try. With the knowledge acquire from reading this chapter and this book I might finally be able to put some fear to rest and start switching my persistency to a more fulfilling journey.
