I’m not going to go pull the definition of persistence. Seems like the thing a lot of people do in speeches and its just poor style.
Persistence is the difference between the ones that make it and the ones that don’t. Staying at something for years, not days at end, is the difference between success and failure. You haven’t failed till you’ve quit. Then you failed. And of course not everything is meant to be a success. There will be failures in life, as long as you learn from them though, its no longer a failure.
For me to stay on track and persistent, I find 5 things I do everyday. If I can stay on track with those 5, then everything else falls like dominoes. What are they?
- Make bed
- Read for 20 minutes
- Respond to all email and social media
- Spend an hour on new business
If I knock out all those things everyday, then I’m good. And that’s my persistence. I’ve found that when you find those 5 things, and stay persistent with them, life and success in life, is like an avalanche. Eventually you make enough noise, the world notices, next thing you know the success in life comes pouring in.
Be happy. Be persistent. Get it done. Win.
