The great Napoleon Hill writes ‘The majority of man meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.”
There it is – that word persistence! It’s the one thing that I am convinced that we are all born with. Without it none of us would have learnt how to sit up and crawl, to walk and to run. None of us would be where we are now. None of us would have achieved what we have and certainly none of us would be the people that ultimately we have become.
Sadly, like learning to fear, where we were once ‘fearless’ as children, many of us seem, to have lost our ‘persistence’ along the way too.
Sadly, like those of us who literally ‘live in fear,’ those who have lost their ‘persistence’ will not stick around long enough to make anything work, or even long enough to enjoy the fruits of their own endeavors and actually, truth be told, they will set themselves up for their own failures and downfall.
So remember to be consistently persistent in order to achieve your dreams and aspirations.
