CHAPTER 9 PERSISTENCE: THE SUSTAINED EFFORT NECESSARY TO INDUCE FAITH

The Eighth Step toward Riches

Napoleon Hill says, "PERSISTENCE is an essential factor in the procedure of transmuting DESIRE into its monetary equivalent. The basis of persistence is the POWER OF WILL."

He goes on to say, "Will-power and desire, when properly combined, make an irresistible pair."

Again Hill refers to Chapter 2, DESIRE. We must complete the six steps in that chapter. Write them down and say them twice daily, morning and night. This is not a suggestion, it is a requirement for success.

I have put mine on 4" x 6" cards and have one near my computer and one on the night stand by the bed. They include my "WHY" from Chapter 2 of Success In 10 Steps as well as the answers to Chapter 2 steps.

Be here a year from now. Going through the 15 chapters of Think and Grow Rich once will not be enough.

When I found Mentoring For Free, I had several decades to develop a negative mindset. I was not going develop the required mindset in a few weeks. I am still learning to apply Hill's 13 steps. I am still working on the mindset that is required for the success I DESIRE.

In a year, I will tell myself, be here another year. Why not, where can one find the value offered like I find here in Mentoring For Free?

The dictionary defines persistence as: the ability to stick with something. If you practice the violin for over a year in order to play "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" perfectly, that's persistence!

Persistence can also mean something that lasts for a very long time.

I am grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for having the persistence to create a system that has stood the test of time, despite what some gurus predicted. Mentoring For Free has persistence. Mentoring For Free is alive and well and will get better and better in the future. Thank You, thank You, thank You Linda and Michael Dlouhy for Your Persistence in developing Mentoring For Free. I love it.

I am grateful to each member who comes to the 8 weekly calls that helps support the Mentoring For Free Persistence. They are developing their persistence too. Thank You, thank You, thank You to each one of You. I appreciate You.
