Persistence will carve you as a leader in your industry. Persistence is where you get mental strength. It seperates you from ordinary people. You must learn to cultivate a habit of persisting, since all things are possible if you persist.
The persistent man or woman doesn't accept defeat, he just keeps climbing on. David Schwarz in his book 'The magic of thinking big' says "Salvage something from every set back". Persistence has incredible power. To reach the roughest of ambitions, we could, if we took one step at a time and continue to take steady steps and not stop. People of greatness have climbed the ladder to success, while encountering all the obstacles that are hurled their way, which usually deter common people. Persistence is a vital step on the ladder, to attain your dream. Man in order to live to his fullest potential must have a dream. To reach that dream you must build a ladder. The first step is determination. The second step is dedication, the third is discipline, the fourth is attitude and the final step is the most important being persistent.
A person with persistence will succeed over the person with more talent, more education or more money. Nothing can replace persistence not talent nor genius, neither education. Lack of persistence is a weakness which filters through a majority of the races. Persistence can turn adversity into greatness. Read Biographies and Autobiographies of great personalities. Follow some of the principles they had employed to succeed. Make a right choice today. Focus on the kind of Sales result you want to produce. Set the target of your sales volume for this year. Set tools to work with, to achieve this target. Discipline your life, fall in love with your dream. Presently you probably are selling only 25% of sales of a 100% target. With persistence you can master your stride to sell the rest of the 75% as well. Remember all great people started as ordinary human beings but had a dream, persisted, endured, determined, disciplined, dedicated and with a positive mental attitude achieved their goals. If they can persist, you can, so begin to persist.
