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 

steel.

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
