In chapter 1, we saw where Edwin c. Barnes had a burning DESIRE to go into business with Edson. When this desire, or impulse of thought, first flashed into his mind he was in no position to ack upon it. However, he immediately road a freight train back to New Jersey and presented himself to Mr. Edson looking like a bum. As we will see, though persistence he became a business partner with Mr. Edson. In this chapter, Mr. Hill point out “Persistence is an essential factor in the procedure of transmuting Desire into its monetary equivalent.” It was Barnes’s desire that put him into a position to become a partner with Edson. However, it was his Persistence that made it possible.

Following the knowledge presented in this book with the intention of applying and transforming that knowledge into the accumulation of money. This knowledge must be understood and applied with persistence. Or another way of saying is, that without persistence it is not possible to apply this knowledge for monetary equivalent as promised in this book.

What are some of the symptoms of lack of persistence?

Failure to clearly define exactly what you want, procrastination or alibis for not doing what you know you should be doing. Not acquiring the knowledge, you need. Not reaching decisions promptly and changing those slowly. Being satisfied in your present position. Not understanding the principle of giving and receiving. Not being a team player or not being a member of a master mind group. Most often we are weak in persistence because of the fear of criticism. Fear of what other people will think, do, or say.

I realize these have all been said before, however we must keep repeating them to ourselves, less we will fall victim to not being persistence.
