So what is persistence exactly. Well to me it means never giving up, continuing to strive for what you want and believe in no matter what. Therefore persistence is the action that comes from the emotion of will. The will power to persist, the will power to get back up. That’s why I believe the really secret behind success is having a very high level of will power.
This means being able to say no many times to the immediate things in order to reap the rewards of the distant things….Such as saying “no” to your television when it’s calling you to watch one more show at night. Or saying “no” to your refrigerator to eat one more piece of pizza, cake, or various other junk that drains your energy and expands your waist line.
But here is the really beauty behind that little dreaded word of “no”. Every time you say the word no to something else that is not good for you and your will power you are saying YES to yourself and your goals. The difficult thing is creating this will power within us and turning it into a habit, instead of a sporadic action.
As a mentor mine Kameron George said, “First you build your habits, then they build you”.
The best way that I have seen to build positive habits is to surround yourself with people who are already at the level that you are trying to reach. This is the basis of being connected with a strong community of like-minded people.
For many years I tried creating an online business all alone. I attempted to work with some website developers, bought and promoted some products through various affiliate sites and even started and ran a drop shipping site for about a year. Now I did fairly well with each of these endeavors, but there was always one major problem. It was just me, behind my computer all day long.
I knew I needed something more and I knew that something was going to be out of my comfort zone. I had to push my will power in the direction of my real goals and stop living within the expectations that my mind created for myself.
I wanted to be part of an online community that didn’t just sit behind a computer, but that lived a very freeing and adventurous life, while also making money online. Well I found them and you can have it to!…watch the video and learn how to free yourself today!
