The Law Of Attraction – Persistence – The Eighth Step To Success

There is no door to success without persistence (my own quote).  Instant success is very rare, and therefore, anyone having reached success had most likely had to show persistence to attain it.

If Thomas Edison had not shown persistence, most of his inventions would have never came to be.  There is no doubt that if you want to be successful in your professional and persoanl life, persistence is something you've got to have. If you lack such quality, you need to learn how to develop it. 

This article will show you how you can develop persistence and use it to you best advantage in order to become a successful entrepreneur, business owner, internet marketer, author, or whatever you may want to achieve.

Persistence – The Eighth Step To Success

So, what is the definition of persistence?

According to one dictionary the definition of persistence is “the quality of being determined to do or achieve something; firmness of purpose”.  Yes, indeed, determination of achievement is an important ingredient of persistence.  Determination is the cause - Persistence is the effect of strong determination and desire to achieve your goal.

Without persistence it would be difficult for anyone to be able to go on and by-pass all the stumbling blocks that they may encounter in his way.

Whatever is it that you are trying to achieve, a career, open a business, make money online, etc… there is going to be some times when things don’t turn out the way you expected it.  Those are times when you are going to feel down, when you are going to be disappointed by lack of results.  Those are the times when your persistence level will be tested.  Depending on how persistent you are or not will ultimately determine your level of success and the rapidity at which you will attain it.

How Can You Improve Your Persistence Level?

Needless to say, some individuals have more persistence than others, however, anyone can improve their level of persistence by putting a little will into it.

If you are aware that you are not very persistent naturally, ask yourself the following questions:

  • How much do you desire success in your life?
  • How important it is for you to be financially free?
  • What is your definition of success?
  • What is the true image that you have of yourself?
  • What are you WHY?
  • What are you Goals?

Defining your level of desire will help you to know how much persistence you are going to have.  The number one factor that is going to give you the necessary “juice” for persistence is desire.  So, my question to you is how much do your desire what you want? 

Do you just say, well, that would be nice, or do you say, I will get this done no matter what, even if it take everything I have.  The answer to such questions should give you a clue about your level of desire.  Just remember, the stronger your desire, the stronger your persistence.

How important is it for you to be financially free.  For some people, it’s not important at all.  As a matter of fact, they are not looking to ever be financially free, thinking all kind of negative things about money. Such beliefs are sometimes conscious but mostly subconscious. What about you?  Where do you stand in this regard?

What is success to you?  For some people, their idea of success is to have a good job and a family, and there is nothing wrong with that, but it would be safe to say that the level of persistence for such people might not be the highest when it comes to persistence to high achievement. What is your idea of success?

What is the image that you have of yourself?  Do you know that successful people hold themselves differently then unsuccessful ones?  If you take a look at yourself, try to NOTICE how you are holding yourself when you walk and when you talk? How do you truly feel about yourself? 

Catch yourself in the act, it will reveal you interesting things!

What is your why?  What drives you? What makes you want to succeed? Who do you want to prove wrong?  Answering those questions will help you determine your level of persistence.

Do you have specific goals?  Did you write them down?  Are you reading your goals out loud every day, twice a day?  These exercises will improve your persistence ability as time goes on.

You need to have big dreams and hold on to it.  Then, take all the necessary actions you need to take to see your dreams come true.  Your persistence will make your dreams come true.
