CHAPTER 9 PERSISTENCE: THE SUSTAINED EFFORT NECESSARY TO INDUCE FAITH

The Eighth Step toward Riches

 As Chapter 4 tells us:

After we have completed the 6 Steps in Chapter 2 we must complete the following:

"In return for the money I DESIRE, I will give the most efficient service of which I am capable, rendering the fullest possible quantity, and the best possible quality of service in the capacity of a coach, mentor and trainer here in Mentoring For Free.

"I believe that I will have this money in my possession. My faith is so strong that I can now see this money before my eyes. I can touch it with my hands. It is now awaiting transfer to me at the time, and in the proportion that I deliver the service I intend to render in return for it. I am awaiting a plan by which to accumulate this money, and I will follow that plan, when it is received."

These are my thoughts early in the morning and as I drift off to sleep at nights.

Hill states, "The ease with which lack of persistence may be conquered will depend entirely upon the INTENSITY OF ONE'S DESIRE."

WITH PERSISTENCE WILL COME SUCCESS.

If you select your "Master Mind" group with care, you will have in it, at least one person who will aid you in the development of PERSISTENCE.

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR PERSISTENCE!

Those who have cultivated the HABIT of persistence seem to enjoy insurance against failure.

Those who pick themselves up after defeat and keep on trying, arrive; and the world cries, "Bravo! I knew you could do it!" The hidden Guide lets no one enjoy great achievement without passing the PERSISTENCE TEST.

"EVERY FAILURE BRINGS WITH IT THE SEED OF AN EQUIVALENT ADVANTAGE."

Like all mindsets, persistence is based on several definite causes:

Definiteness of purpose
Desire
Self-reliance
Definiteness of plans
Accurate knowledge
Co-operation
Will-power
Habit

There are two books that have been life changing for me; 33 Days To Morning Glory and Think and Grow Rich. I know I will succeed. I am always on the lookout for plans to follow that will lead me to where I say I want to go.

We have the solution right here in front of us. We must learn and follow these 13 Steps and with PERSISTENCE, our plans will be fulfilled.

I am grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for their PERSISTENCE in creating Mentoring For Free. Those of us who are PERSISTENT will be given the plans we are looking for. Thank You, thank You, thank You Linda and Michael Dlouhy for all You do for us. We appreciate it very much.

I am grateful for all who form each harmonious Master Mind group. Without You we could not be PERSISTENT. Thank You, thank You, thank You to each one of You. You are appreciated very much for Your inputs.
