THE SUSTAINED EFFORT NECESSARY

TO INDUCE FAITH

The Eighth Step toward Riches

PERSISTENCE IS AN ESSENTIAL FACTOR in the

procedure of transmuting DESIRE into its monetary

equivalent.  The basis of persistence is the POWER

OF WILL.

Willpower and desire, when properly combined, make

an irresistible pair.   Men who accumulate great fortunes

are generally known as cold-blooded, and sometimes

ruthless.  Often they are misunderstood.  What they 

have is willpower, which they mix with persistence,

and place back of their desires to ensure the attain-

ment of their objectives

There may be no heroic connotation to the word

persistence, but the quality is to the character of

man what carbon is to steel.

Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this 

platform for us to learn and grow into the people that we

are meant to be.

Love to all
