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 nottruly failed until you accept failure. However, if you aretruly persistent, failure is a clear indication you aregetting closer to success.

How can that be?

Because with each failure comes very valuable knowledge. Theknowledge of what DOESN'T work, (this is the basic premiseof testing).

Acknowledge failure brings you a step closer to success andyou will never look at it the same way again.

Do you have a light in your house? Of course you do. Do havea light in your car? Of course you do. Do you see them inthe street, in the shops, airports, hospitals, restaurants,etc, etc? Yes, they are everywhere.

Well, the electric light was borne from one man'sirresistible persistence to invent what many said wasimpossible.

It wasn't easy, thousands of times he failed....thousands!!How many people make it past 3 failures? Most give up afteronly 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 tookhim 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 dofor you.

Persistence can be developed through 4 simple steps.

Are you ready?

Pay close attention, these are life skills you shouldembrace deep within your psyche...practice them wheneveryou want to rise above your present dilemma...teach them toyour children.

The 4 Steps to Developing Persistence

Step 1
Have a definite goal fueled by a burning desire to achieveit.

Step 2
Have a definite plan and continually work at it.

Step 3
Close your mind against all negativity. Do not think aboutor be discouraged by the negative comments that may comefrom family, friends and acquaintances.

Step 4
Form a friendship with one or more people who will encourageyou to follow through with your plan and achieve yourgoals.

There my friend is the kind of thing we should be taught inschools. How different might your life be if you embracedthat as a child.

Personally, I was never taught to persist. Whenever thegoing got tough I quit.

After years of underachievement, poverty and unhappiness Iknew my life philosophy wasn't working. I decided if I everwanted things to change I needed to change.

So I set about discovering the laws of life known by thevery rich and the very happy.

The 4 Steps to Developing Persistence are among the mostvaluable.

Here's how they can apply to you:

Step 1
Have a definite goal backed by a burning desire to achieveit.

- I'm guessing you want to be rich. If you do commityourself to achieving that goal you are half way there.Read my '7 Secret Steps To Success' article once you havefinished this one. http://007workfromhome.com/harnessing-your-power.php

Step 2
Have a definite plan and continually work at it.

- You must have a plan because without one you are treadingwater. How many people do you know have goals?

Probably not many, I know because I asked a lot of thepeople around me what their goals were and most of themjust went "...aahhh....dunno".

That's the kind of aimlessness that will see you doing thesame unrewarding job for the next 15 years.

Step 3
Close your mind against all negativity. Do not think aboutor be discouraged by the negative comments that may comefrom family, friends and acquaintances.

- 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 applyor will be seen for what it is:-- An attempt to stop you from rising above the position inlife they would prefer to see you occupy! --

Step 4
Form a friendship with one or more people who will encourageyou to follow through with your plan and achieve yourgoals.

- 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 toform a personal relationship. Encouragement from the greatminds and achievers of our time can be found in books,tapes and CD's.

Jim Rohn is very good, others are Anthony Robbins andNapoleon Hill.

Persistence is a necessary ingredient in any achievement.Obviously it must be, because if you didn't persist youwould never finish anything.

The degree of your persistence is actually proportional tothe size of the achievement.

It has been a defining characteristic of some of thegreatest men and women to ever walk our planet.

Persist!
