Persist for Success!

TEAMWORK -

=====================
Persist Until You Succeed
=====================

" You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win "


- Zig Ziglar: Motivational author and speaker



The most important single quality of success is self-discipline. Self-discipline is having the ability within yourself, based on your strength of character and willpower, to do what you should do when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not. Character is the ability to follow through on a resolution after the enthusiasm with which the resolution was made has passed.

Persistence is Self-Discipline in Action

Perhaps the greatest display of self-discipline is persisting when the going gets tough. Persistence is self-discipline in action. Persistence is the great measure of individual human character. Your persistence is, in fact, the true measure of your belief in yourself and your ability to succeed. Each time that you persist in the face of adversity and disappointment, you build the habit of persistence. You build pride, power, and self-esteem in your character and your personality. You become stronger and more resolute. By persisting, you become more self-disciplined. You develop within yourself the iron quality of success, the one quality that will carry you forward and over any obstacle that life can throw in your path.

Get Going and Keep Going

Orison Swett Marden wrote in his book, “There are two essential requirements for success. The first is 'go-at-it-iveness' and the second is 'stick-to-it-iveness'” Referring to the quality of persistence he wrote, “There is no failure for the man/woman who realizes his/her power, who never knows when he/she is beaten; there is no failure for the determined endeavour, the conquerable will. There is no failure for the man/woman who gets up every time he/she falls, who rebounds like a rubber ball, who persists when everyone else gives up, who pushes on when everyone else turns back.”

"Discover how you can turn challenges into opportunity and triumph over adversity every time."

Persistence is Your Greatest Asset

Perhaps your greatest asset is simply your ability to stay at a task longer than anyone else. B.C. Forbes, who founded Forbes magazine and built it into a major publication during the darkest days of the Depression, wrote, “History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeat.”

Adversity is What Tests Us


Throughout history, great thinkers have reflected on this paradox and have concluded that adversity is the test that you must pass on the path to accomplishing anything worthwhile. Herodotus, the Greek philosopher, said, “Adversity has the effect of drawing out strength and qualities of a man that would have lain dormant in its absence.” The very best qualities of strength, courage, character, and persistence are brought out in you when you face your greatest challenges and when you respond to them positively and constructively.

Action Exercise

Your greatest successes almost invariably come one step beyond your greatest failures, when everything inside you says quit. Think of failures in terms of how you can make them successes.

"Don't Let Anything Hold You Back"
Everyday thousands of people accomplish unbelievable tasks because they never put a limit on what they believe they can do. Once you learn how to break through your personal success barrier nothing will stand in your way of achieving greatness.
Have fun, learn heaps, and enjoy every step of your journey!

Life is fun, life is hard work, but just look at the success you will have in life.
