Persistence- The sustained effort necessary to induce faith 
The Eighth Step toward Riches

It’s not where you start but where you are going…. And on this success journey it’s will require patience and persistence.

Launch and Learn, We have to Launch and Learner, You and I have to launch and learner.

This weekend I slow down enough to watch two movies that had great examples of our will power and if one is persistence enough, with whatever comes into your life; than what seemed impossible becomes possible, and only because of someone’s persistence to succeed in whatever hand they have been dealt to live out on this side of life.

The two movies where “Hidden Figures” and “The Founder” both of these where examples of persistence and courage, very, very great courage which we all need if we are going to change the directions of our lives and the lives of others

When you’re flying and looking for other eagles to fly with you it may take some time to allow the other eagles to find and discover you on this success journey.

Why? Well Eagles don’t fly in packs they fly alone!

The basis of persistence is the POWER OF WILL!

Today there is something different about me that won’t allow me to stop! In my heart of hearts, I know I am on the right track with discovering the Mentoring for Free System. Today I have such an inner drive to not quit, and an obsession to find answers when people say “ooh you can’t do that” and my response is “ooh yeah” well you just watch me and see.

Just look at these two examples, in the movie Hidden Figures, three powerful women with so much will power it moved me to tears about how courageous they had to be in a time and era they lived in.

The incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson - brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

The second movie was about Ray Kroc, founder of McDonalds

This drama tells the true story of how Ray Kroc, a salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers' speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. He maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire, which today is run by a bunch of teenagers who ask you a simple question” would you like fries with that”?

Now understand, I know we all can make a better hamburgers but do we see the big picture of what we can create with our business model?

What I discovered in watching both of these movies, was how much more do I have to FOCUS, and use all my will power to be persistent in changing my world and the world of others.

Persistence is the key and not quitting doesn't mean you sit on your butt, pray and wait for an answer. No it means you pray and you pray, but most important is that you now, get into action, go to work and go find the answers you’re looking for! 

PERSISTENCE is an essential factor in the procedure of transmuting DESIRE into its monetary equivalent.

Now everyone listen up and listen closely, today in our lives;

If you do what is easy in life; your life will be hard; but if you do what is hard first your life will be easy.

“How You Do Anything, Is How You Do Everything”

Hill has given all of us the Blue Print for Persistence:


There are four simple steps which lead to the habit of PERSISTENCE. They 
call for no great amount of intelligence, no particular amount of education, 
and but little time or effort. The necessary steps are:—



INFLUENCES, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends and 


These four steps are essential for success in all walks of life. The entire purpose of the thirteen principles of this philosophy is to enable one to take these four steps as a matter of habit. These are the steps by which one may control one’s economic destiny.

Look here is something I pick up from one of my coaching call with Michael, he asked me and I am sure he has asked you and everyone we introduce him to, “How can we help you own your life”?

Great question!

Hill tells us to examine the first hundred people you meet, and you may ask them what they want most in life, and ninety eight of them will not be able to tell you. Wow! Wow! Wow!

If you press them for an answer, some will say “SECURITY”, many will say,

“MONEY”, a few will say “HAPPINESS” others will say “FAME AND POWER”, and still others will say—“SOCIAL RECOGNITION, EASE IN LIVING, ABILITY TO SING, DANCE, or WRITE”, but none of them will be

Able to define these terms, or give answer of the slightest indication of a PLAN by which they hope to attain these vaguely expressed wishes. Riches do not respond to wishes. They respond only to definite plans, backed by definite desires, through constant PERSISTENCE.

They are the steps that lead to freedom and independence of thought.

They are the steps that lead to riches, in small or great quantities.
They lead the way to power, fame, and worldly recognition.
They are the four steps which guarantee favorable “breaks.”
They are the steps that convert dreams into physical realities. 
They lead, also, to the mastery of FEAR, DISCOURAGEMENT, and INDIFFERENCE.

There is a magnificent reward for all who learn to take these four steps. It is the privilege of writing one’s own ticket, and of making Life yield whatever price is asked.

 There are many examples to follow here; of being persistence with Mentoring For Free Program, it is a road map for change, it’s a place where you “Learn How to Think, Not What to Think”! 

As we all become more and more persistence to the Mentoring For Free system and participate on the calls and understand that this is a process, and soon you will become more Self-Confident and 10 feet tall and Bullet Proof! The lesson plans you and I write and or don’t write for some strange reason, Is your FAITH Speaking Out Loudly!!!

Well a special, special thank you, to Michael and Linda and I can’t express it enough of how grateful I am to all the members of this Mastermind group here at Mentoring For Free, for all your persistence over the years and your positive and encouraging words to me and everyone on the calls and showing me how to stay the course.

We all must be PERSISTENT no matter how slowly you and I maybe, at first, if we continue to move forward WITH PERSISTENCE WE WILL MEET WITH UNEXPECTED SUCCESS. And no matter what it may have looked like in the beginning, in the end I will live out my purpose.
Blessings to you all,
