The Next extra P in business is…..…..Persistence!

This is has to come from within and how long you persist at something, not just in business, is a reflection as to how committed you are.

As Brian Tracy (well know American Success coach www.briantracy.com) recently said on personal Persistence:

“Your persistence is, in fact, the true measure of your belief in yourself and your ability to succeed.”

In other words Persistence comes from how much you believe in yourself to complete your task. Its not really about the task itself, its about you and your commitment to it.



In terms of being successful in business this translates into what Napoleon Hill had to say about Persistence.

Napoleon Hill (author of Think & Grow Rich) has this P as an essential ingredient in becoming successful. He wrote:

“Persistence is an essential factor in transmuting desire into

its monetary equivalent.”

This is easier said than done. But to help you Persists there a few things that you can do to help you.

Be responsible. Take responsibility for carry out your task and realise that you will profit from it if you Persist, you will be in a much better position. Pin this up some where so you can remind yourself of this fact, not just daily but throughout your day.

Another way, which I was recently reminded of by Sue from Red Hot Events and Seminars (http://www.redhoteventsandseminars.com ), was to join a mastermind group.

Find a group that has like minded people in it. You’ll naturally find encouragement there. You’ll also find that encouraging others boosts your own Persistence and enthusiasm to succeed.

So you need to ask the question: Are you committed to Persisting with your business?

I’ll give you my final P in business soon, thanks, Tim.

    Great advice Tim. Without persistance we can get very frustrated, discouraged and failure is inevitable. Persistance takes discipline but will always bring success and a feeling of great accomplishment.
    And yes, a mastermind group is absolutely essential!

    Thanks for the reminder Tim. As so many people quit just before their breakthrough to success, it’s important to remember that the difference between success and failure can be down to NOT QUITTING! That final push, with persistance, can bring the results that’s you’ve waited for and now achieved, but others gave up just that little too early. I agree – we need others to encourage us on our journey. Alison
