Chapter 9 Persistence


The Eighth Step toward Riches


THERE YOU ARE, SO CLOSE TO YOUR GOAL OR FEELING THE FIRE within to start something new—and a wall rises in front of you. How will you scale and overcome the wall? You get unexpected news. Life changes immediately and you cannot begin to imagine how it will turn out. How do you make it through the uncertainty? You have been working so long. You feed your passion with action and have faith that your determination to continue will one day be rewarded. How do you trek on down what seems like an endless road? If you have ever found the light at the end of the tunnel, have ever faced down fear and been the victor, or have ever answered doubt and criticism with achievement, you already have the answer inside you. PERSISTENCE is the key to successfully batting obstacles back that life catapults in your way.

This is the weapon that causes enemies such as

Fear, Doubt, and Negativity to crumble. 

We must go back to chapter 2

And remember what a Burning Desire is and Follow the The six steps and remember them and implement them in order to be successful. Hill states the first test of your persistence will come when you truly begin to follow those six steps to the letter. Hill also states the lack of of persistence is one of the major causes of Failure.  

It is weakness that must take consistent effort. 

The ease with  which one lack of persistence may be conquered will depend entirely upon the intensity of a person's Burning Desire. 

Many times in life we will hit bumps and bruises in life. Our success is only up to us and our persistence. To educate ourselves, do the Work, and follow the system.

Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to burn his ships and cut all sources of retreat. Only by so doing can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a BURNING DESIRE TO WIN, essential to success. Every human being who reaches the age of understanding of the purpose of money, wishes for it. Wishing will not bring riches. But desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and means to acquire riches, and backing those plans with persistence which does not recognize failure, will bring riches.The method by which DESIRE for riches can be transmuted into its financial equivalent, consists of six definite, practical steps which is located in Chapter 2, 

Then you must follow the 8 steps to a persistent state of mind, then break the systems of lack of persistence. Then also follow the key formula on how to develop persistence. 

1. A definite Purpose (My WHY)

2. A definite plan 

3. A mind tightly closed to all negativity 

4. A friendly alliance of with one or more persons who will encourage you. 

One way I stay persistent is to Keep Moving Forward no matter What! 



There is no substitute for persistence!
