PERSISTENCEHIll says that winners never quit and quitters never win and I take that as the gospel truth.

 

If you want a perfect example of persistence just watch ANY small child at a store when he or she want’s something and how they go about getting it from the parent…it’s relentless! Maybe we should take a lesson from them.

 

When I think of persistence here are just a few instances that stick out to me.

 

The little slave girl who needed the 50 cents

 

Henry Ford when he wanted his V8 motor.

 

The broadway actors and actresses that kept on when there was seemingly no hope.

 

A perfect example of not persisting and quitting was the three feet from gold story. SO SO close to a fortune and didn’t seek counsel, packed it up and went home leaving the fortune on the table for someone else who had the wits to seek professional counsel. But a valuable lesson was learned and persistence was never lacked in the future endeavor of insurance sales.

 

I’m keeping my eyes on the prize and NEVER giving up as I know we all are on this mastermind.
