Chapter 9 Persistence
As long as I can remember I've always had many "projects" that I work on. Many of these are small pieces to be fit together later into something bigger. But, often they never amount to anything big, but simply contribute to my ongoing lifetime learning experiences.
When I tell people all of the big things I am doing, they always respond in disbelief. They cannot believe I am actually doing them all. I love when people tell me they are busy. It is easy for them to see that busy is not always productive.
I've come to rely upon my desire and belief in but a few, long term "projects". I've been a primary income earner for my family. I earned a degree and applied it to tasks for others, yet, I've always kept a broader perspective, on my development, and those of my teams. Keeping my focus, long-term, on only 2 or 3 of these "projects", has kept me on track, making slight edge progress, and avoiding distraction.
I've amassed a healthy family, a decent collection of assets, and a persistent drive to realize my purpose. Now is all that I have. Today. How I use my time, my most valuable asset, is tantamount to more success.
Thanks to Mentoring for Free, and our incredible mastermind sessions, I have learned and practice several skills that help my accomplishments progress. Using my self talks, and, my persistent attention and focus on my plan continue to be key to my continuing success. And, although, my mind is the one true thing I own and control, how I use my time is a close second. Continuing to develop and sustain my desire to remain enthusiastic, through challenges and distractions, and staying focused on the top "project", with raw, total commitment, being all-in, is how I exercise my persistence every day.
with gratitude, and, in service
