Persistence has forged many to fame and fortune, but the lack of persistence has befallen even more to defeat.  For anything in life worth having there is a price to pay.  Weather it be more time spent on a business, less time watching TV, or not being able to spend a fabulous night out with family or friends.  A price must be paid.  The temptation of life's pleasures are always lurking to lore you away from what it takes to get where you want to be.  It takes A strong desire, what you want; A definite plan, how you going to get what you want; willpower, pushing yourself to the goal; and Persistence, sticking to your convictions to defeat all distractions and carry you to success.  You have to power yourself through the tough times using the tools Mr. Hill prescribes, Definiteness of purpose,Desire, Self-reliance, Definiteness of plan, Accurate knowledge, Cooperation, (Our Mastormind Group), Will-power, and Habit.

Sometimes it feels like you are standing still and the break that you so desire is so far. The temptation of relenting to this negative forces of quitting is pressing upon your mind. That's when you must press on, that's when you need to be persistence. You can bend and break through these barriers by not giving up. It may seem pointless at times and the drudgery of the mundane actions of repetition may cloud your intentions and leave you wondering why am I doing this or there is no financial gain in those actions. Go back to your Why to regain your focus. Stop that stinking thinking. I found out that the getting is in the giving and that's what I learned from the team call with Mentoring for Free.  The universe hears what you feel and it knows that what you think about most is what it will produce.  That's when you must persist with positive self talk, persist in action, persist with an emotional desire, wanting success so bad you can feel and taste it, decree your why, declare your definiteness of purpose. Scream it to the universe. Drown out the negative with overflowing declarations of promise and success.  If you can move from a negative state of mind to a positive state of mind, that's when the magic happens. Sometime you have to dig deep for the stength and courage to carry on. You have to say to yourself, "Ive got this and do it, because no matter what the outcome may be you have made strides towards your goal.     

Life is truly what you make it, It's all in your mind, you are what you think, it all starts with your thoughts. So nurish and nurture your mind.  Plant the seeds that will bring you true success.  Without persistence you will never reach the goal we all seek to claim.    

To my Mastermind team, every one of you, to your success
