Chapter 9-Persistence


THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR PERSISTENCE! It cannot be supplanted by any other quality! Remember this, and it will hearten you, in the beginning, when the going may seem difficult and slow. Those who have cultivated the HABIT of persistence seem to enjoy insurance against failure. No matter how many times they are defeated, they finally arrive up toward the top of the ladder.


In order to cultivate the habit pf persistence you know that you will not fail.  There will times that you don’t reach your goal but with persistence you can start over with a new plan and succeed.  This has been true of everyone who has been successful.

All the principles that Mr. Hill has elaborated on  in this book need to be developed.  It becomes a habit.  This habit must always be a part of the goals you set for yourself.  As a person uses the habit of persistence he will learn he has a power that helps him carry on.
