Think and Grow Rich Chapter 9 - Persistence

Chapter 9 - Persistence

Hill tells us at the beginning of this chapter "PERSISTENCE is an essential factor in the procedure of transmuting DESIRE into its monetary equivalent. The basis of persistence is the POWER OF WILL. Will-power and desire, when properly combined, make an irresistible pair."

One of the definitions of Will power in the Dictionary is energetic determination and determination is described as a firm or fixed intention to achieve a desired end.

I talked with someone the other day and they asked me to help them become focused. I asked them what they wanted to achieve, what was their "Why", what goals did they have and they could not give me an answer.

So how can we be persistent and have energetic determination if we don't even know what our desired end is?

It is like going out for target practice.  You go out to a field, you have no gun you have no arrow you have just yourself standing there.  You stand there and say to yourself, "I am going to hit the target" and you are expecting results!  You aim for the target and you begin looking for the target but you can't see one. You turn around and around in circles looking for the target but you don’t see it because You failed to put up a target to hit.  You stand there and say to yourself, "I am going to hit that target" and you are still expecting results!  REALLY?

You may be persistent, you may have a desire to hit the target but you have nothing to aim at!  It's like grasping for the wind.

Hill tells us "lack of persistence is one of the major causes of failure. Moreover, experience with thousands of people has proved that lack of persistence is a weakness common to the majority of men. It is a weakness which may be overcome by effort. The ease with which lack of persistence may be conquered will depend entirely upon the INTENSITY OF ONE’S DESIRE."

We may have persistence but persistence needs something to work with.

Be a Mentor with a Servant's Heart
We have no competition in Social Media!
Nobody has the value and quality of training for free, like Mentoring For Free.

We are a bit abnormal in that we don't pitch any deal, other than finding out how we can help a person who downloads our ebook and demonstrates a desire to be COACHABLE.

Our only agenda is to pay it forward and see how we can help a person by teaching skills, skills, skills.

Skills a person needs to be successful in life and when creating an income from home.

To do that successfully, we must talk, so we require a valid phone number and email address.

To see our 4 Step plan to introduce people to Mentoring For Free and to download Success In 10 Steps (pdf), go to -->>

Have a pleasant day, everyday!

Always leave people better than You found them.
