The Sustained Effort Necessary To Induce Faith
The Eighth Step toward Riches
There may be no heroic connotation to the word persistence
but the qualitly is to the character of man what carbon is to
I think when we look at the life of the Late Senator John McCain
we see persistence in his life -- from his early years as a Prisoner
of War to a Maverick of the Senate --thus dedicating his life in service
to the USA -- this would of been his 82nd birthday. (8-29-2018)
Hill tells us how to develop persistence
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.
Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this platform for all of us to
learn and grow into the person that we were meant to be.
Love to all
