Law 13- The Power of Resilience & Persistence
Do you have a Never-Give-Up; Never-Say-Die Spirit?
Regardless of what you go through can you stay focused and on track? Once you have a conviction, do you stay on course or are you convinced to change your course? Do you understand the 5-Ps Principle? – Prepare, Plan, Practice, Patience and Persistence.
Do you know that s/he who fails to Prepare and Plan today patiently waits to fail tomorrow? The bridge between Success and Failure is built with Preparation, Planning, Practice, Patience and Persistence. The subconscious mind that controls 90% of everything we achieve. It works and delivers results through conditioning i.e practice, practice, practice – consistency, consistency, consistency, persistence, persistence, persistence (get it?).
Failure is simply feedback. Do you have the ability to use every setback to learn and grow? Do you Know that anything that you want badly and you practice Long enough for, will eventually come to you if you don’t give up?
Success is a numbers game, it out waits and out lives failure or failed attempts. As an inventor, Thomas Edison made very many unsuccessful attempts at innovating the light bulb. If he hadn’t failed, Edison most likely would not have become one of the world’s most recognized and prolific innovator. If you could ask him about the times he failed trying to invent the light bulb, Edison would probably reply with some of his famous quotes:
I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.
Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
To Consistently succeed you have to Keep on Keeping on. Stay connected as we continue to share these 50 significant lessons and very powerful principles that I’ve seen at work in the lives of the world’s greatest achievers (dead or alive).
