Persistence

Last Update: February 14, 2021

Are you a persistent person?

Do you want to continue to be a member even though other people don't want you to continue?

Are you faced with someone trying to stop you from doing something because they don't understand what you are trying to accomplish, such as learning a new skill, setting up your business, affiliate marketing and maybe some other thing you want to accomplish?

See the example in the image above; it says it all.

Grass growing through cracks in concrete is determined to succeed regardless of whether it's growing in the wrong place and not with other grasses. Why? Because it is branching out.

Yes, it will probably get poisoned, chopped down all because it wants to be different, we call it being untidy, or a stubborn piece of grass growing in the wrong place.

My idea of a persistent person is one with tenacity.

We at WA admire a person who has persistence, and they are respected by others who wish they could possess the ability to do something for themselves regardless of the setbacks in their life.

So why do so many of you give up?

  • finances
  • not paying family enough attention
  • friends tell you it's not okay
  • spouse issues the list could go on and on

Developing and mastering persistence to success is a skill, or is it?

So how do you develop the gift of a persistent person?

  • Keep on trying even when things go wrong, remember that's how we learn
  • Change your tactics
  • have an ideal model, someone in WA who is successful that you can learn from and who is not afraid to help you when you pm them
  • Take advantage of the moment
  • Rest, take a break recharge your batteries and start again or restart
  • Look at what you want to achieve: visualise your image, draw a picture, cut out a picture from a magazine
  • Reward yourself after you have completed each goal
  • Keep on being positive, confident, cheerful and enthusiastic

Many of us find this relatively easy to do; some of us have to work at it.

I hope you find this helpful and if the chips are down and you are not getting indexed. Remember Mr and Mrs Google love you and want you to succeed, but you have to have persistence. Persistence is Cool!

#1 & #3 that is the reason almost every day I argue with my wife about this issue. All because of financial problems, "find a real job" she always said. But thanks to you I'll going walk it step by step.

Excellent checklist, Yvonne - as I have plenty of pictures and quotes around to keep me motivated. I'm also careful who I share things with. I don't really share my goals and projects with pessimistic people - even if I'm related to some of them; I only confide in those who will encourage me when things get rough. 👍

Appreciate the post!
Isaiah 😊

Wonderfully said Isaiah, I totally agree with you about who you share things with, most of the time people don't understand who you are as a person.

Excellent reminder Yvonne, it can be hard, especially when those around you neither understand nor want to be part of your new world. Not being able to share the successes can also be a major downer.
Regardless of all that, if you truly want to succeed then you will need to have persistence along with resilience and determination.

Thank you Twack, you are right it can be difficult not to share in your successes. But it's actual persistence, resilience and determination all go hand in hand to win successfully.

Hi Yvonne
Persistence is extremely useful!

I think of persistence as a skill in the sense that it works best as a habit.

All habits are skills whether they are useful or not.

All habits are controlled by our subconscious mindset, or self image as Dr Matthew Maltz called it in his book Psycho-cybernetics.

Thanks, Richard iI haven't heard of that book but it sounds interesting and appears to be an interesting read.

The original Psycho-cybernetics was first published in 1960 and is the foundation for many later works on mindset. It is accurate. Then with permission of the Dr Maltz’s widow, Frank Kern created an updated version around 2000 ... available on kindle.
