Do You Have Enough Persistence to Succeed?

Do You Have Enough Persistence To Succeed?

Ask one hundred people, "do you have enough persistence?" and maybe, maybe, twenty percent could say "Yes!"

Practice until you get it right

​A few weeks ago I was on a google hangout with Chef Katrina and met a few new friends in the network marketing atmosphere.  One of them, Fernando Loaiza, was sharing some encouragement and direction about goal setting and he said, "You have to have persistence."  I thought that is really great advise because this business of networking is not a get rich quick business.  

Then a week later I am on a webinar with another great teacher named Ray Higdon and he said you have to be consistent and persistent in the business habits you do everyday.

I thought there is that word again from two great teachers so there must be something to this persistence.   Then, I set out to do some research on this matter and that is what I want to share with you today. I can't share it all in this post so I will make this a short series of post on persistence.

What is persistence? 

Persistence is required to obtain any goal in life.  Long, short, or in between, it doesn't matter some persistence is needed. 

What is this much needed characteristic of the human will?

It is finding over one thousand ways that will not work to make a light bulb, to find the one that will.

It is submitting a book to publishers 27 times before one says yes.

It is a soldier standing up out of a wheel chair, at the parallel bars 200 times, to learn how to walk with new metal legs and feet.

It is working with WordPress day after day to learn how it operates to get up your first blog post.

Persistence is the ability to work at something over and over until faith is developed in you, that you can do what you set out to do.

Persistence is a state of mind

Coach Fernando gave the reference of the great work by Napoleon Hill -- Think and Grow Rich.  He recommends reading the chapter on persistence everyday to keep your mind focused on the stick-to-it-ness called persistence.

Here is eight "must haves" to help you develop persistence to obtain your goals.

Be Absolutely sure of your purpose - A truth is, "if you don't know where you are going any road will get you there."

Have a great Desire for that purpose -- this is the octane in your gasoline

Belief in your self - (self-reliance) No one can do it for you

Have a set of plans -- you can not build a house with out plans. You can not build success with out plans.

Have the right knowledge -- do not guess

Cooperate with others -- we can not and do not live in this world by our self

Will-Power - controlling your mind.

Good habits -- we are creatures of habit - habit gets things done.

In my next eight blogs I will go into this list one at a time. In the meantime, if you found this useful please leave a comment below. If you think someone could use this please share it with them.

if this was helpful please share with someone who will benefit also

Baxter Cribbs -- I like marketing and Copywriting and helping other learn the same. When I am not learning about either of these I like to work out. The outdoor YMCA track is his favorite place. I also like studying and talking about the scriptures. I believe a person should be growing until the end of life.
