 Persistence

From The Book

Think And Grow Rich,

 

Those who have cultivated the habit of persistence

 

Seem to enjoy insurance against failure. No matter how

 

Many times they are defeated, they finally arrive up toward

 

The top of the ladder. Sometimes it appears that there is a

 

Hidden Guide whose duty is to test men through all sorts

 

Of discouraging experiences.  Those who pick themselves up

 

After defeat and keep on trying, arrive; and the world cries,

 

 Bravo! I knew you could do it!

 

I like true story’s, This reminds me of a guy named Rudy,

 

He was 5’6 nothing.  His dream was to play football for

 

Notre Dame, he had one friend that believed in him,

 

His friends and family just blew him off, your to small

 

most of those guys out weigh you 200 pounds, their

 

over 6 foot tall, your grades are not good enough.

 

He did not listen, one day it happen he was walking out onto

 

The Notre Dame  practice football field. He kept getting

 

Knock down he would get back up, over and over again

 

For four years he was beat on. He earned a lot of respect

 

From his team mates and coaches, so much so this

 

5’6 nothing was ask to lead them out on to the football

 

Field to start the game, they all told him he earned it.

 

I think it’s safe to say most of us have been beaten up

 

By our friends and family.  And like Rudy we have not quit,

 

And because of that we found Mentoring For Free.

 

We are and I am  learning what it takes to become good networkers.

 

The opposite of persistence is quitting,  it takes no talent

 

To quit, anybody can do it, and most people do.

 

WHY BE NORMAL?
