Think and Grow Rich

Chapter 9

Persistence: The Sustained Effort Necessary to Induce Faith

Eighth Step Toward Riches


“The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE...” and “persistence is an essential factor in the procedure of transmuting DESIRE into it's monetary equivalent.”

... the lack of persistence is one of the major causes of failure.”


I believe that many people may say they DESIRE money, but really only wish they had some. Some may BELIEVE they can have money, but they don't have a “money consciousness” nor a Burning Desire to accumulate it. Those who only wish and those who don't have a burning desire will not persist in their efforts to increase their wealth. This holds true in every aspect of a person's life, not only in the accumulation of money.


It comes down to having either a “poverty consciousness” or a “money consciousness”. Those who are indifferent about accumulating wealth have not developed their money consciousness, but can do so with the help of a mastermind group. People of like minds who know what they want, have a burning desire to get what they want and will persist until they get it. Just associating with a mastermind group is beneficial. If you surround yourself with people who have a “poverty consciousness” you will be in poverty and until your consciousness changes you will never accumulate wealth.


Thank you Michael and Linda for this wonderful mastermind group you have developed and thank you to everyone in our group for supporting one another on their journeys to accumulating wealth. Thank you for the uplifting energy.
