                                        QChapter 9 :PERSISTENCE:  
                  
            THE SUSTAINED EFFORT NECESSARY TO INDUCE FAITH

                                        The Eighth Step toward Riches


PERSISTENCE is an essential factor in the procedure of transmuting DESIRE into its monetary equivalent.

The basis of persistence is the POWER OF WILL.
Will-power and desire, when properly combined, make an irresistible pair. Men who accumulate great fortunes are generally known as cold-blooded, and sometimes ruthless. Often they are misunderstood. What they have is willpower, which they mix with persistence, and place back of their desires to insure the attainment of their objectives.

The majority of people are ready to throw their aims and purposes overboard, and give up at the first sign of opposition or misfortune. A few carry on DESPITE all opposition, until they attain their goal.

Hill also tell us that weak desires will bring weak results, that's why we need to work with our Master Mind Group to ensure our learning through this journey until we will believe in our self and be able to get to our goals

He also gave us four steps that will help us with the development of Habit of PERSISTENCE.

1. A DEFINITE PURPOSE BACKED BY BURNING DESIRE FOR ITS FULFILLMENT.

2. A DEFINITE PLAN, EXPRESSED IN CONTINUOUS ACTION.

3. A MIND CLOSED TIGHTLY AGAINST ALL NEGATIVE AND DISCOURAGING INFLUENCES, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends and acquaintances.

4. A FRIENDLY ALLIANCE WITH ONE OR MORE PERSONS WHO WILL ENCOURAGE ONE TO FOLLOW THROUGH WITH BOTH PLAN AND PURPOSE.

These four steps are essential for success in all walks of life. The entire purpose of the thirteen principles of this philosophy is to enable one to take these four steps as a matter of habit. These are the steps by which one may control one’s economic destiny.

They are the steps that lead to freedom and independence of thought.

They are the steps that lead to riches, in small or great quantities.

They lead the way to power, fame, and worldly recognition.

They are the four steps which guarantee favorable “breaks.”

They are the steps that convert dreams into physical realities.

They lead, also, to the mastery of FEAR, DISCOURAGEMENT, INDIFFERENCE.

There is a magnificent reward for all who learn to take these four steps. It is the privilege of writing one’s own ticket, and of making Life yield whatever price is asked.


I know I have the WILL-POWER AND DESIRE  to change my life around, by following the six steps on chapter 2,  that once again Hill tell us do,will help me develop the PERSISTENCE  necessary to acquire the changes I want. 

Following this steps is going to be hard at the begging but I will try as many times as I need to reach my goal and with the MENTORING FOR FREE group  know I will be able to do it
