Chapter 9 Persistence
The Eighth Step Toward Riches

  Obviously, this whole chapter deals with PERSISTENCE. Without persistence, how can you run a successful business? It’s not built upon wishful thinking. It is built on definite plans of action.
  It is not built on the opposing influence of the naysayers, whether it be friends or relatives. You must have a backbone and stand for what you believe when you pursue your dream. Saying your self-talk 500-1,000 times a day helps build your self-esteem in your pursuit of your successful business.
  Once you have your seed of thought on what you plan to pursue in your business endeavors, water it with persistence. PROCRASTINATION gets you nowhere and you must have goals. Even if you fail, you must press on, if you want to run a successful business. You must have a solid foundation on how you want to run your business. You can’t rush through your business and expect to succeed. You have to build your foundation upon The Five Pillars For Your Success, which are:
  1) Company Management Experience with Integrity
  This step is achieved by building relationships.
  2) Timing in the Company, Timing in the Industry
  3) Remarkable Product (at Value Price)
  4) Compensation Plan that Pays the Part-Time Person
  5) Proven Duplicatable System
  See Michael Dlouhy’s video on 5 Pillars to Success.
  Thank you, Michael Dlouhy, for creating this Master Mind group and Nathan Grimes for never giving up on me.
