A huge lesson personally from this chapter was that have had to learn Persistence over the years. That without that Persistence none of those small goals would have been obtained. It has meant being determined to achieve that goal when have had the naysayers on own back going I have never had this happen switching off and achieving that goal. Its also being determined to achieve that goal No matter how long it takes, You are all in for that goal or dream.

Part of own persistence was continuing on to start a family with Jenny even when there was little results after 12 months working on that goal. 2 years later our son was born, that took persistence on its own. Just like the persistence to be a stay at home dad and constantly working on the business knowing that it will happen.

The persistence has alos been built when was seeking a relationship to be able to settle down with someone to start my own family. It took many years to find Jenny and many profiles to look at and say ok that is someone that will fit, do I meet what they are looking for. Sometimes it lead to dates, othertimes just getting to know the person and it stopped.

It took persistence on its own just keep on going through all those profiles, introducting myself and saying this is who I am. Learning about myself too, its taken persistence to build those friendships which have now with those from own life. Working on creating those relationships and friendships with those whoare within my own life.

Any goal that have ever achieved has been owing to that persistence, just as Henry Ford with car’s, the V 8 motor. Albert Einstein with the light globe and his 10000 failures that took persistence on its own. We need to keep up that persistence to allow ourselves to achieve those goals. It takes persistence on its own to fly from the Australia to USA or England, You are unable to just be there in a second. It’s the journey that is worth the reward is what have found as that journey often teaches the lessons needed.

Thank You to my amazing wonderful, persistenant, loving friends, mentors and family Ken Klemm, Linda and Michael Dlouhy for Your ongoing love, support and encouragement. Thanks to my amazing loving wife for life Jenny who is doing an amazing job as a mother to our Son Jamie.

Your friend for life,

Big hugs,
