PERSISTENCE to me seems to be the continual practice of the skills learned in the first 5 chapters of the book.
Hill also says
These four steps are essential for success in all walks of life.
1. A DEFINITE PURPOSE BACKED BY BURNING DESIRE FOR ITS FULFILLMENT.
2. A DEFINITE PLAN, EXPRESSED IN CONTINUOUS ACTION.
3. A MIND CLOSED TIGHTLY AGAINST ALL NEGATIVE AND DISCOURAGING INFLUENCES, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends and acquaintances.
4. A FRIENDLY ALLIANCE WITH ONE OR MORE PERSONS WHO WILL ENCOURAGE ONE TO FOLLOW THROUGH WITH BOTH PLAN AND PURPOSE.
The entire purpose of the thirteen principles outlined in Hills book is to instill into our mind the habit of practicing the 4 steps for success in all walks of life.
A PERSONAL NOTE: This has been the best training I have ever received. It has not only improved my life, but has renewed my love and relationship with my wife and family.(One goal already achieved)
Thanks to all involved in this program.
