No matter what else we do; without perseverance it simply won’t have mattered in the end. Each time I have had the opportunity to work with or interview individuals, who have succeeded at the highest levels in their professions, I always ask them one important question. “What do you most attribute today’s success to?” Without fail perseverance is among their top contributors.
Jim Rohn has been a great influence in my life. Of the many words of wisdom he offers these are two I place great focus upon. He says:
“The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you, will always be far greater value than what you get.”
“Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges, wish for more wisdom.”
“You are the only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life.” If we have gone through the laborious work of the other 9 Productivity Rules to Spark our Engagement & Ignite our personal power then making perseverance our capstone will insure the realization of our deepest desires.
I will! I hope you will too!
Onward & Upward My Friends, Lisa
