The Author Mr Hill refers to "Persistence" as the eight step to riches.
There is no substitute for Persistence. It cannot be supplanted by any other quality. Those who have cultivated the Habit of Persistence seem to enjoy insurance against failure. No matter how many times they are defeated, they finally arrive up toward the top of the ladder.
Sometimes it appears that there is a "Hidden Guide" whose duty is to test us through all sorts of discouraging experiences. Those who "can't take it" simply do not make the grade. Those who can "take it" are rewarded for their "Persistence".
They also receive the knowledge that "every failure brings with it the seed of an "Equivalent Advantage."
I am grateful for Michael and Linda for creating "Mentoring For Free", the Mastermind team and sharing it with the world, but most of all teaching and living the "Power and Rewards of Persistence".
