Chapter 9 - Persistence

Hill wrote "POVERTY is attracted to the one whose mind is favorable to it, 
as money is attracted to him whose mind has been deliberately prepared to 
attract it, and through the same laws. POVERTY CONSCIOUSNESS WILL VOLUNTARILY 
consciousness develops without conscious application of habits favorable to it. 
The money consciousness must be created to order, unless one is born with such 
a consciousness."

What Hill is telling me when I read this is that we automatically have a poverty
consciousness and unless we work at creating a money consciousness we will never
attain riches.  Hill says we have to create the right consciousness, we have to
work at it and make it a habit.

Michael Dlouhy is a perfect example of someone who has worked at it to such a 
degree that whenever he is doing any kind of activity his mind automatially shows
him how to prosper in that activity.  His mind does not accept loss as an end

Michael has shared many stories of things in his life and how he does and handles
situations and we have had the benefit of learning from these stories and are
able to utilize them in our life, if we choose to.

Patrick Lencioni has stated "Success is not a matter of mastering subtle, 
sophisticated theory but rather of embracing common sense with uncommon 
levels of discipline and persistence."

This is what Michael has done in his personal and business life and we can
learn to do the same thing as long as we are persistent enough to create that
money consciousness.

Denis Waitley has stated "As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest
destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day
or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time."

We will continue to grow as long as we stay persistent.
