SIMPLE INSPIRATION: Persistence
Over the past three years, I've spent time observing and studying successful people. Three points on the timeline stick out on nearly every person.
#1 -- DAY ONE
An idea/goal arrives and successful people do not waste any time putting it into action. My studies show the timeframe for going from idea to action is an average of four days. So, just go for it!
#2 -- YEAR FOUR
From day two until sometime into year four or five, persistence is crucial. Your interest wanes. Frustrating problems occurs. "The man" gets you down. This is when 80% of people give up (for whatever their reason). The sad part is people often give up right before their hard work is about to pay off.
#3 -- YEAR TEN
Congratulations are in order for making it to year ten. Years five through ten are spent honing your craft and perfecting what you do. You are now an expert in your industry.
Persistence is the biggest factor in success. Yes, you must be capable, but you don't have to be amazing from day one. There is plenty of time to utilize that learning curve. Focus on what you want, take action and never give up!
