The fact of continuing in an opinion or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.
Persistence is the journey of manifestation. Dreaming and thinking of your goal until you have it in plain sight. Persistence is habitual behaviour, not everyone has learnt that trait and that’s okay. You need to find your motivation, your desire. The thing that’s going to trigger you, to get all that you need and want out of life. You get that by finding out who you are and what you want. Because if you’re not 100% sure of who you are, then maybe what you think you want is not what you truly desire.
Persistence guarantees your success if it’s focused in the right direction. For example; your goal could be to lose 15 pounds in weight, by going on a diet. But if you put efforts into the wrong direction you could be persistent in constantly going on a diet, yoyo dieting. Make sure your vision and desire is clear. You want to make sure you are persistent in the right direction. Make your focus directed at positive polarity.
I recently heard a talk from Bob Proctor, “your persistence must be continuously connected to your desired vision”
Persistence keeps you going through every obstacle you can imagine. Believe in your struggle, believe that it will guide you to happiness and success. “If you’re going through hell; keep on going. – Winston Churchill
Understand the law of cause of effect as I believe it will make persistence makes sense. Context determines the content. A quote I read from life purpose info
“Good deeds bring good results. Bad deeds bring bad results. Your own deeds bring your own results”
For example growing a tomato, the context what you put in such as; the seed, the soil, water and the light. The content is the growth of the tomato. Own effort, own result.
Use persistence to work for you and not against you. “The power plant doesn’t have energy, it generates energy.”
My summary of being persistent, is to have the image of your goal in your subconscious mind. Then focus on your behaviour, act on that image and be persistent to make it your reality. Have a high level of expectancy, believe it is possible and that you have the strength to make it happen.
Hope this inspired you to go after your dreams. Remember everyday is a new slate, don’t live with regrets.
