THE SUSTAINED EFFORT NECESSARY TO INDUCE FAITH

The Eighth Step toward Riches

PERSISTENCE IS AN ESSENTIAL FACTOR in the procedure of

transmuting DESIRE into its monetary equivalent.  The basis of

persistence is the POWER OF WILL.

Henry Ford has been generaly misunderstood to be ruthless and

cold-blooded.  This misconception grew out of Ford's habit of 

following through in all of his plans with PERSISTENCE.

The majority of people are ready to throw their aims and purposes

over-board, and give up at the first sign of opposition or mis-

fortune.  A few carry on DESPITE all opposition, until they attain

their goal.  These few are the Fords, Carnegies, Rockefellers, and

Edisons.

There may be no heroic connotation to the word "persistence," but

the quality is to the character of man what carbon is to steel.

Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this platform for

all of us  to learn and grow into the people that we were meant to be.

Love to all,
