Persistence is one of a handful of traits that, when applied to your life, guarantees your success.
Persistence means that, so long as I commit to getting back up one more time than I fall each day – no matter what challenges I face – it is inevitable that I will transform my vision for my life into my everyday reality.
If you can believe that’s true for me, then it’s also true for you.
How awesome is that?
But sheer persistence is boring.
It’s not flashy and exciting like passion or basking in the momentary glory of the accolades of others.
But passion alone will never get the job done. Neither will living for those outside accolades from others.
While both are essential at specific points in our progress, nothing beats single-minded persistence for turning our dreams into our reality.
As I’m fond of saying, make a decision.
Follow your excellent decision with effective and immediate action.
Repeat every day until you achieve your goal.
Well, that depends on you and your chosen dream.
It depends on how hard you’re willing to work for your dream and what you’re willing to give up to make the time to achieve it.
Are you up for the challenge?
Just say YES!
