Jesus said “Believe that ye receive and ye shall receive.” Paul said “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
During the webinar this week I learned the true definition of “persistence.” Is persistence “not quitting?” Is persistence “just stick it out?” Definitely “NOT.” Persistence in its truest form is “Following A Definite Plan, Expressed In Continuous Action to the attainment of your definite major purpose!!!!” This is the difference between successful people and failures. Successful people have a definite plan and through Faith and Belief follow the Plan. Failures just hope, well hope is not a strategy. Successful people understand by following a plan things and people will come into place through thick and thin to make it happen. As Og says in the scroll, “The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Always I take another step. If that is of no avail I take another and yet another.” Continuous forward movement.
What are the Four Tiny Habits? The Golden Keys.
- A definite major purpose backed by a burning desire for its fulfillment. Ask yourself, when in my life did I have a purpose that I fueled with desire continuously that it was not fulfilled?
- A definite plan, expressed in continuous action. ” Whoa” are you telling me I have to apply myself? Yes and when it is a definite major purpose it will not be work. It will be life. Your life will be fueled by an uncommon energy.
- A mind tightly closed against all negatives and discouraging influences, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends and acquaintances. Protect your mind! Acknowledge not everyone is going to be your cheerleader. There will be many times you will need to say, “I Am Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Loving, Harmonious and Happy.” Love those people be courteous and kind, they just don’t understand. It’s ok. Remember it is God who has given you this purpose. He believes in you. Believe in Him and have Faith.
- Friendly alliance with one or more persons who will encourage one to follow through with both plan and purpose. You have people in your life who you can share your purpose with and who will stay with you through thick and thin, deepen your relationship with them. If you don’t have those people find them. Mentors have guided and supported me in all my life.
Believe and have Faith follow your plan,
