Chapter 9 – Persistence

Have you heard about the man who decided to swim the English Channel from England to France?  He started out strong, but half way there he doubted that he could make it, so he turned around and swam back.

Last week’s theme about decisions and persistence go hand in hand.  Without making the decision every day – to get in shape, to lose weight, to build a business – you never meet your goals.  Mr. Hill emphasizes that every person who has done anything great persisted until the goal was reached.

So, even when you’re bobbing around in the middle of the English Channel with both England and France far away, make the decision to keep swimming.  Persisting every day determines your outcome between drinking beer in London or sipping wine in Paris.
