Never underestimate the power of persistence!
If you persist you really cannot fail.

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

The 4 Steps to Developing Persistence
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:
- 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
- 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.
- 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! --
- 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.
