I was having a short meeting with a new friend last night. That was our first meeting. He was my senior in the university and I didn"t know him by that time.
The Law of Attraction free 42nd street has brought us together. He stumbled upon me through one of the social network websites. We have been in phone calls for several times and finally we manage to arrange for a meeting.
You know, when two men meet together, we don"t chat about shoes, dresses, cosmetics, cooking, shopping and handbags. Instead we chatted on business and personal development.
Thank god that he is not a negative thinker.
Don"t worry folks, I"m not going to lay out the whole 4 hours conversation here but I would like to share a story with you.
The Power of Persistence
In our conversation, we agreed that persistence is one of the essential elements of success but most of the people FAIL TO DO IT!
He shared with me that one of a successful entrepreneur challenged him to write down every dollar and cent that he spends. It is like keep a record of his expenses.
Pretty simple, right? I believe everybody can do that. It is not rocket science and it"s a no brainer. The entrepreneur asked him to report his progress after 3 days, 3 month and 3 years. Well, forget about his progress. This is about you, not about him.
Now, ask yourself, how many of you can do it consistently and persistently for 3 days?
How many of you can do it for 3 months?
Finally, how many of you can do it for 3 years?
Be aware of your feeling. How did you feel when I increase the time duration?
Is that a hard job? NO!
Can you do it persistently
I"m sorry. I try not to make this post too long. I shall continue this tomorrow. Stay tune.
