Chapter 9 - Persistence
Sometimes we look at our business and we tell ourselves we are
not as persistent in building our business as we need to be
to be successful.
I have come to the conclusion that we can sometimes "beat
ourselves up" because other things take up our time and then
we talk to ourselves and tell ourselves we are not doing enough,
we will never succeed, etc. etc.
We are not living on this earth just to build a business. We
have other areas in our lives that are important and we cannot
just shut ourselves off from our world and go into our business
room and think that is all there is.
We have to realize that being persistent is also talking about
being persistent in our personal relationships, our working
relationships and there are things that have to get done at home
like keeping our homes clean and shopping for groceries so
we can cook and feed our families. These also need to be done
I have a husband that is losing more and more of his memory. I
have to be persistent is keeping up with whatever help he needs
and do more and more of the things he used to take care of. I have
to do these things with persistence and I am not able to keep up
the same pace with advertising and building my business as I used
to be; but I can be persistent with the time I do have and use
Napoleon Hill has been known to have said "The most interesting
thing about a postage stamp is the persistence with which it
sticks to its job."
We all have many things to do in this life and we need to be
like the postage stamp in all area of our lives.
As Michael Dlouhy says "We need to live in the now."
We need to take care of all things as they come with persistence.
