Chapter 9-Persistence-

Sustained effort necessary to induce Faith!



What is sustained effort? To me Sustained Effort is repeated over and over again until it becomes a habit.  All thirteen factors of Mr. Hill’s must be applied for persistence to become a habit. To make it a habit we must follow the four steps Mr. Hill has outlined.  They are:


     1.A definite purpose backed by a burning desire for its Fulfillment. Make persistence a habit until your subconscious mind has a clear picture of what you desire. We must have a money consciousness before we can acquire a fortune.

Follow this proverb “Every Failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent Advantage.” 


     2.A definite plan expressed in continuous action. Will Power-The habit of concentrating one’s thoughts upon the building of plans for the attainment of a definite purpose,


     3. A mind closed tightly against all negative and discouraging influences. Persistence is the direct result of habit.


     4. A friendly alliance with one or more persons who will encourage one to follow through with both plan and purpose. These four steps can be achieved by a matter of habit. They are essential in all walks of life.  The¥ are the steps by which one may control one’s economic destiny.


I am posting this somewhere that I can read it every day.
