Chapter 9 : Persistence

Failure is largely a function of lack of persistence. Persistence is often related to the power of the will. Without will power one become less and less likely to reach one’s goals. Reducing one’s persistence can be related to wind in the sails of a sailing vessel, as the wind is reduced, the vessel slows and becomes less maneuverable. The vessel is less likely to reach it destination. With less persistence or less wind in our sails we start to give up and lose sight of our desires.  The intensity of one’s desires depends entirely upon one’s persistence or the lack there of.

Why do we not persist at things which we know that are important, things which we know we should do. We all know that reading our “Six Ways to Turn Desires into Gold” twice daily, once in the evening and once in the morning will insure our success in creating our desire for riches. We know this, why do we not do it? It is easy to do, however it is not to do.

If one does not possess persistence, one does not achieve noteworthy success in any desire, that he or she may have. With persistence will come success. Defeat will be changed into victory with persistence.

Thank you Michael and Linda Dlouhy for your persistence in making Mentoring for Free a success for all of us.
