CHAPTER 9 PERSISTENCE: THE SUSTAINED
EFFORT NECESSARY TO INDUCE FAITH
“As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest
destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day
or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.”
Persistence is a firm or obstinate continuance in a course of
action in spite of difficulty or opposition. Hill wrote,
“Persistence is an essential factor in the procedure of
transmuting desire into its monetary equivalent. The basis of
persistence is the power of will. Will-power and desire, when
properly combined, make an irresistible pair.”
This country was made by men and women who made of steel. We
witness that with those 56 men who faced the loss of all they
had even their life yet signed the Declaration of Independence.
Or, Henry Ford whose desire and determination to put an
automobile into hands every American continue to the make “the
ugliness car in the world” when everyone was telling him to
change. We are called to be like these men of “steel”. Ordinary
men who steeled themselves to do ex-ordinary things.
We all came to Mentoring for Free as Network marketers who have
felt the string of failures and frustrations when building an
income from home. Frustrations from being total to call all our
family members, friends and all those we have known for our
lifetime to convince them join our business. We have witnessed
the disappearing act of everyone. We be told had we are just
not talk to enough people. Here, we have been shown that with a
burning desire, reinforced by a deep faith in ourselves and a
proven system, with definiteness of purpose, a definite plan,
with definiteness of action and with persistence follow through
we can have all the success the Infinite Intelligent has for us.
My question “Do you have the persistence of a Big Cat?” Just
watch any documentary on wild cats be it lions, tigers, cheetahs,
and pumas, you will see a spirit of determination and persistence.
They have a desire to satisfy their hunger. Their plan is to scout
out for a prey to satisfy that hunger. With a definiteness of
action, the chase begins. The real persistence comes with every
failed attempt they just start over until success.
You want to get a download of “Success in 10 Steps”, you make a plan
for reaching out on the social media, you put the plan into action.
The persistence comes doing the simple steps with consistency and
making changes when need and starting over if needed. These are the
same in doing your networking business.
My thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy because of your persistence we
have this platform to grow personally and professionally. My gratitude
to Bob Shoaf for being a friend who really cares about my success. I
appreciate the gift of brilliance that each of you brings to the calls.
I count to blessing for all those who have downloaded “Success in 10
