Do You Have Staying Power?
"If you are going through hell , keep on going" - Sir Winston Churchill
Staying Power.Some of you may know that record by the late Barry White.On that track, he was talking about his love making abilities and his prowess at it.
That is not what this article is about.It is about that trait that sets successful people apart from the failures, whether it is in business or in marriage.
How does staying power relates to online marketing ? It is a fact that successful marketers have that ability.For them, it is simply a matter of sticking around when things don't work out the way they want it to.
Staying Power.Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill and many other great men and women all had it.It was that ability which made them different from being simple dreamers and wishers.
They had to have it to make their dreams and aspirations become a reality.This is the kind of attitude that we all need to have.Some people are born that way and luckily for the rest of us, it can be learnt.
Staying power requires persistence, consistency and a "never say die" attitude.With practice one can develop their staying power in any area of life they are engaged.
If you are serious about making your business and personal endeavors survive the long haul, start by thinking about ways you can develop your staying power.It really works !
You don't have to take my word for it.Next time you happen to see Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates or Arnold Schwarenegger ask them.Their answer would not be far from what I expected.

Keeping Perspective: When Bad Things Happen That Are Not Life Threatening
The very first thing to question is how important is this in the overall scheme of life? Compared to all of the things that have happened, are happening, and could happen in my life - how bad is this? Is it something that will impact the rest of my life? Is it temporary? Although the pain may not feel like it's temporary, it usually is. It's important to get a perspective. If your car has been stolen, that's a major nuisance that will cost you time and money to replace, but how does that compare to a diagnosis of cancer? If your marriage is ending, it can be extremely painful, but your life will continue no matter how bleak circumstances may seem. So wouldn't it be easier to find a way to transcend the pain and move on, let go, and take away the power from the negativity? Wouldn't it be more pleasant to look at the 'bright side'? and yes! There always is a flip side! It may not be one you believe in at the moment, it may not be where you want to focus, but there IS another perspective.
