Powerful Persistence Strategies to Achieve Success

Aug 17, 2007
The first persistence stategy is taking responsibility for all of your life. It's the first step toward having a successful and fulfilling life. Stop blaming others, stop making excuses, and start changing your actions and reactions to events and opportunities in your life to those of a positive nature.

Understanding that everything you are experiencing today is the direct result of the choices you made in the past makes it easier to start taking 100% responsibility for all of it. Once and for all, vow to give up complaining and start soaring into positive action in the direction of your dreams.

Responsibility is really about control (not blame). Do you want to control your life, or hand that control over to others such as your family, the media, and society?

Every day, remind yourself to take control of those parts of your life that are within your control, and let go of trying to control what or who is not.

"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all." ~Dale Carnegie

Persistence Strategy 2 - Keep rolling the dice to come out a winner.

The single most important quality that all successful people possess is the power of persistence. No matter the obstacles, no matter the unforeseen roadblocks, and no matter how huge they appear, those who are or will be successful keep rolling the dice over and over again.

The longer you play, the greater the odds are in your favor of coming up a winner. When you realize that winning success could very possibly be the very next roll of the dice, you'll understand that there's no point in getting discouraged and quitting.

Within every road to successful achievement are buried invisible land mines you're almost certainly going to step on. When you do, don't panic! Remove yourself from the situation, step back and ask yourself these three questions:

1. "What are 3 ways I can move over this obstacle?"
2. "What are 3 ways I can move under this obstacle?"
3. "What are 3 way I can move around this obstacle?"

Give yourself the time necessary to find the answers. They are there, but only when you look for them!

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan, 'press on' has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race." ~Calvin Coolidge

Persistence Strategy 3 - Be willing to do whatever it takes.

Within the achievement of every dream lies a multitude of walls, barriers, setbacks, delays, and overwhelming challenges that were leaped over, crawled under, sailed around, and charged right through to overcome. Practice, determination, consistence, persistence (and then even more practice!) are absolute requirements on your path to ultimate success.

The knowledge and acceptance of this truth plus your willingness to do whatever it takes adds the extra push you need to persevere in spite of any temporary pain along the way. Lasting benefits await you!

Do Whatever it Takes Instructions Simplified:

1. Fall down.
2. Get up.
3. Dust off.
4. Repair or rebuild anything broken, bleeding, ripped, or destroyed.
5. Observe what you did to help cause the fall, then change your strategy.
6. Continue on.

"People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they don't know when to quit. Most men succeed because they are determined to." ~George E. Allen

Persistence Strategy 4 - Avoid failure mentality.

There are many actions (or reactions) you can choose to take when you hit a brick wall on your road to success. The responses listed above will keep you moving forward in a positive direction. The three listed below simply won't work.

Denial: Some people don't want to face the fact that there's an obstacle in the way and that they have to change their course to get around it. Instead, they keep doing what they've done to get there over and over again, producing the same dismal result each time.

Quitting: Those who give up and quit have (and develop even more of) an inner attitude that they don't have what it takes to succeed, they're not smart enough to meet their goal, or that they simply don't deserve to have success. All quitting really does is keep you stuck in the same place and mindset.

Anger: Throwing a temper tantrum and shaking your fist at the obstacle won't move it. It won't budge even when you're ranting, raving, and railing about it to others. All you manage to do is waste a lot of time and energy while remaining stuck in the same place.

Remind yourself of this success affirmation often: "When I feel inadequate, I remind myself that I have all the experience, tools and resources I need to overcome any situation. I think through all possible issues and know that I can rise above them superbly."

You can and will when you believe it!
