How To Harness The Awesome, Unstoppable Power Of Persistence In 4 Easy Steps
Never underestimate the power of persistence!
If you persist you really cannot fail.
While you may fail many times along the way, you have not truly failed until you accept failure. However, if you are truly persistent, failure is a clear indication you are getting closer to success.
How can that be?
Because with each failure comes very valuable knowledge. The knowledge of what DOESN'T work, (this is the basic premise of testing).
Acknowledge failure brings you a step closer to success and you will never look at it the same way again.
Do you have a light in your house? Of course you do. Do have a light in your car? Of course you do. Do you see them in the street, in the shops, airports, hospitals, restaurants, etc, etc? Yes, they are everywhere.
Well, the electric light was borne from one man's irresistible persistence to invent what many said was impossible.
It wasn't easy, thousands of times he failed....thousands!! How many people make it past 3 failures? Most give up after only one. Plenty never even try.
But Thomas A. Edison, the creator of the incandescent light, took each of those failures in his stride.
With the knowledge of what DOESN'T work, each failure took him a step closer to changing the entire world!
We only want to get rich. A much, much easier task.
If persistence can change the world, imagine what it can do for you.
Persistence can be developed through 4 simple steps.
Are you ready?
Pay close attention, these are life skills you should embrace deep within your psyche...practice them whenever you want to rise above your present dilemma...teach them to your children.
The 4 Steps to Developing Persistence
There my friend is the kind of thing we should be taught in schools. How different might your life be if you embraced that as a child.
Personally, I was never taught to persist. Whenever the going got tough I quit.
After years of underachievement, poverty and unhappiness I knew my life philosophy wasn't working. I decided if I ever wanted things to change I needed to change.
So I set about discovering the laws of life known by the very rich and the very happy.
The 4 Steps to Developing Persistence are among the most valuable.
Here's how they can apply to you:
- I'm guessing you want to be rich. If you do commit yourself to achieving that goal you are half way there. Read my '7 Secret Steps To Success' article once you have finished this one. http://007workfromhome.com/harnessing-your-power.php
- You must have a plan because without one you are treading water. How many people do you know have goals?
Probably not many, I know because I asked a lot of the people around me what their goals were and most of them just went "...aahhh....dunno".
That's the kind of aimlessness that will see you doing the same unrewarding job for the next 15 years.
- If you know someone who has a habit of discouraging you, don't tell them what you are doing or what your goals are. Wait until you're having some success and then tell them.
Anything they have to say then will either no longer apply or will be seen for what it is: -- An attempt to stop you from rising above the position in life they would prefer to see you occupy! --
- If you know people of similar mind then that is fantastic, spend time with them, soak up their positivity.
If not, don't worry because you do not necessarily need to form a personal relationship. Encouragement from the great minds and achievers of our time can be found in books, tapes and CD's.
Jim Rohn is very good, others are Anthony Robbins and Napoleon Hill.
Persistence is a necessary ingredient in any achievement. Obviously it must be, because if you didn't persist you would never finish anything.
The degree of your persistence is actually proportional to the size of the achievement.
It has been a defining characteristic of some of the greatest men and women to ever walk our planet.

REST: The New Strategy for Business and Life Success
No matter how many times you have vowed to change your harried ways, you still find yourself running behind, running out of time, running out of patience and running on EMPTY. Your biggest problem--exhaustion. You are just plain old tired. But you keep going, because there seems to be no way out.
How to Get Up on a Down Day
One of the major obstacles to achieving goals is losing the motivation necessary to finish them. Many times the initial surge of energy is lost after the reality of hard work or set backs sets in. Here are eleven things that can be done to maintain high motivation.
Its a Habit
Do you sometimes have the feeling that you're running into the same obstacles over and over again? Many of my conflicts have the same feel to them, like "Hey, I think I've been here before," but I can't figure out how I wound up in the same place. The situation is different, but the conflict feels the same.
Storytelling - The Great Motivator of People
In a data-driven world, facts and figures are the order of the day in sales calls, employee meetings, board rooms, and political assemblies. Traditionally, when a person is trying to convince someone else to do something they use the logic of benefits and features - long the sacred domain of anyone in sales.

What Makes You Special?
Many people are too busy today trying to fit themselves into the image of other people. This ranges from physical appearance to dressing mannerism right to extreme character imitations.
Stop Squeaking! Align Yourself for Business Success!
Even for a remarkable business owner like you, from time to time, you may still loose motivation in continuing the expansion of a service or product line. At time, you may seem to have a hard time figuring out why this once fantastic business that got you so excited every morning is making you feel like a heavy weight now.
Breaking Through Resistance
Why is it that every time you start something new, a million and one things get in the way?

'Stuart Goldsmith? Who is Stuart Goldsmith?' you may be asking.
Remember, Worse Things Can Happen At Sea, So..... Dont Ever Quit!
Throughout the many pages of scores of motivational books, with the Bible being at the forefront, we are encouraged to "not give up." We are told to believe that we can come through any situation and be victorious in life. Ask yourself this question: Am I up-beat or am I beat-up?
A Reality Practice
Suggested practice to gain freedom from self-limitation.
What Being Vs Doing Really Means
So often we hear about "being" rather than "doing." Often it's given as advice when we are overwhelmed, overworked and overstressed. "You should just 'be.' You're doing too much." Well, yes, obviously, but what does that MEAN? How do we just be?

Self Determination - Making the Most Out of You
Breaking the mold of being a child is difficult. The mere addition of years does not make that happen. The dependency many adults choose, in fact, keeps them in a child-like mentality. If the doctor makes our health decisions, an accountant our financial ones, a minister our moral ones and a politician is left to decide our rights, how is that different from a child being told what to do by teachers and parents?
Thinking for Success - The Same Method Does Not Work For Everyone
I am always concerned that there are so many books available on the subject of being successful, but unfortunately many of these books are read and then discarded.
On the J-O-B. That's where I met him. Quentin Cole was his name. Everyone called him Q for short. Q was an extremely attractive man. He was 6'2", had the waviest-curliest-jet-black hair that you ever saw. This man had the deepest dimples, hazeliest of green eyes, and a physique to die for. He always dressed well and smelled so, so g-o-o-d. WOW!
ADHD - Its a Wonderful Life
As I usually do over the Holidays, I watched one of my all-time favorite actors in one of my all time favorite movies and that's Jimmy Stewart in "It's a Wonderful Life". Co-starring Donna Reed and made in the 1940s, the movie was not critically acclaimed at the time, but over the years has become a stable of the Holiday Season. If you have not seen it, you need to, and if you have, then you all know it revolves around a small town businessman George Bailey from Bedford Falls, New York, who, as he grows up, has all of these dreams of doing wonderful things with his life, and hopes of traveling to all the farthest points in the world. His plans are constantly interrupted by world events and family circumstances, which include the death of his father, the great depression, and World War II. George's father and his Uncle Billy years earlier had started the Baileys Brothers Building and Loan to help the less fortunate people of Bedford Falls obtain the great American Dream of home ownership. Their only alternative is high rent or exorbitant interest rates to the local scrooge Mr. Potter. Uncle Billy is a classic ADHD type individual. An Irishmen, like me, who apparently has never been married, has a pet crow he carries around with him, and a pet squirrel at home. He is constantly worrying and has little self esteem.
Don't you just hate it when people make excuses for their failures? So do I. But do you know what I hate even more? Finding myself making excuses for my failures! I have a policy that I try to live by: No excuses.
