The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat. If you find yourself lacking in persistence, this weakness may be remedied by building a stronger fire under your desires.
This statement is now apart of my daily life. Listening to this chapter on a few occasions reminded me of when I am designing and creating a garment I would sit at the sewing machine for hours on end.
At times I would take the garment apart so many times until I am satisfied with the finished product.
It do not feel like a task it is just something to accomplish because in my minds eye I am seeing myself in the finish products, wearing it, walking into the event, and all my girlfriends loving my creation.
Designing and making clothing is a craft I started at the age of 13 being taught by my mother who did it professionally, whom I greatly love and respect. It was also my profession years ago. At that time I did not need a strong WHY to keep me focus.
Now I ask myself "WHAT HAPPENED"?
My mind is giving me great ideas and I am lacking persistence.
My habit is procrastination and I developed that unhealthy habit as a child into adulthood. It started in school, followed me through collage and now with all my businesses.
I had to focus on the word Persistence and it's meaning to complete this lesson. I will stay in this direction moving forward to accomplish my goals.
My mentor Bob is always on time to put me in check and I thank him for always knowing what is going on with me before I utter a word.
I thank all the leaders and especially Micheal.
