                               Chapter 9     Persistence  

            The Sustained Effort Necessary to Induce Faith

                           The 8th Step Toward Riches


 Hill states that Lack of Persistence is one of the major causes of Failure.

Surrounding myself with a Mastermind Group and through the cooperative efforts of the members of this group, I will develop Persistence.


Hill states that there are four simple steps which lead to the habit of Persistence.


  1. A Definite Purpose backed by Burning Desire for it’s 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.

These are the Steps that convert dreams into physical realities. They lead also to the Mastery of Fear, Discouragement and Indifference.


Avoiding negative folks and the daily negative news allows me to be more positive. I’ve learned in life that we all have trials and tribulations and from my experience, I know that Prayer and focusing on the solution always works for me. Also, I’m aware of what I need to do to get to the next level in my business. My Plans are written down and I have a deadline to meet my Goals.


Blessed & Highly Favored,
