The Easiest Way to Ensure Your Persistence

Most of us are conditioned to take the path of least resistance even if it means staying miserable.

You see to achieve something big, beautiful and truly worthwhile, especially if it’s something you’ve never done before and have no idea how to do, you are going to need to develop persistence.

The reason for this is that the real purpose of a goal is to grow.

It’s the growth that gives us meaning to life.

But ask anyone on the path of personal growth, it’s not easy.

Personal growth takes courage and persistence. There will often be times when it feels tempting to go back to safety, back to the old and lousy, back to the way things were.

“Those who have cultivated the HABIT of persistence
seem to enjoy insurance against failure”

~~ Napoleon Hill

The worthy goal you’ve selected is your vehicle for growth. It’s the “carrot” urging you forward.

The reason we want your goal to be something truly significant and desirable is because in order to achieve it you ARE going to have to grow.

You are going to have to overcome obstacles but as you doRead more

Use This Powerful Ability to Create the Life You Want

Think about your car, phone, computer, air travel and the lamp on your bedside table.

How did they originate?

Almost everything we use on a daily basis is the direct result of someone’s thought or idea. Even the clothes you’re wearing.

But what do we mean by someone’s “thought” or “idea”?

It’s often overlooked that these things were created FIRST in someone’s IMAGINATION.

“Imagination is the beginning of creation.
You imagine what you desire,
You will what you imagine and
at last you create what you will.”
~~ George Bernard Shaw

We all have the ability to use our imagination which means we already have in us everything it takes to create anything we want in our life!

Magnificent news!

Yet most of us don’t use this ability. Before starting school we thoroughly enjoyed using our imagination but then we were punished for daydreaming and told to pay attention.

Obviously many people use their imagination to design homes, art, write novels etc, however few adults use their imagination to DREAM of and CREATE the life they want.

Why Your Dissatisfaction with Life is Healthy

Were you ever told to be satisfied with life?
Happy with life? Absolutely. Satisfied? No.

You see, from the moment you were born you’ve been going after goals. First you wanted to crawl, then stand, then walk, then talk.

As a baby, a very natural part of you always strived for that next level of accomplishment and how great you felt each time you achieved it. How happy those around you were too.

So why do we stop striving to better ourselves?
Is it any wonder life feels so meaningless and empty?

The reason you’re born to be dissatisfied is because you’re born to be a goal achiever, always onward and upward.

Don’t fight it; embrace it.

It’s in your nature to explore and experience life, to stretch, to grow.

The path to exploring, stretching and growing is to go after something you truly want.

“If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being,
you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.”
~~ Abraham Maslow

When we’ve stretching and giving our best, we’re at our happiest.
When we’re suppressing ourselves and living a mediocre life, we’re miserable.

To be “satisfied” with life at any time is to have missed the point completely.

Why… You’re Worth It!


Do you compare yourself to others?

Do you feel you’re not good enough, that no matter how hard you try you never quite measure up?

That’s you? Well, thank goodness for that!

You’re not perfect.

I’ve realized I wouldn’t want perfection because what then, would be the purpose of life?

There’s no-one quite like you and fortunately there never will be…

…so how could you EVER compare yourself to anyone else?

BUT the beautiful little secret is…
…you can always become BETTER!

All humans naturally seek expansion and greater freedom. The adventure of life TRULY BEGINS when you allow yourself that.

“We are all living in cages with the doors wide open.” ~~ George Lucas

Remember your FREE WILL?

This means you can “BE” whoever you want to be.

Free will means there’s never any judgement. Imagine what you’d achieve if you never judged yourself!

This means you don’t have to WAIT until you’re perfect before becoming better (and oh boy does the human race love a good reason to “wait”).

Choose to move forward NOW.

Tell yourself, “I am worth it and I’m becoming an even BETTER version of ME!”

Let’s look at nature

If nature’s not evolving what’s it doing? You got it, it’s dying.

And that’s the same with us.

What’s another word for evolving?


Unless you’re creating, you’re disintegrating. You’re a natural-born creator who right now isn’t even close to your true potential.

You’re more powerful and magnificent than you can imagine

I love that I am not even close to perfection because it’s been such a blast evolving this far. Believe me, I wasn’t born loving myself!!!

I’m so grateful to have discovered the truth about life because now I’m loving the adventure and living my dream. The pace picks up each day and the opportunities continue to grow.

It’s awesome! Please allow yourself to join me!!!

Did you know DISSATISFACTION is in fact a powerful, creative state?

Agreed, always be grateful for what you have and who you are, but always strive to be even BETTER.

You’re starting to see a theme here I can tell : )

Have you noticed how the things you PROCRASTINATE about are those exact things that would directly benefit and enrich you?

Why the hesitancy? Because you don’t think you’re good enough or worthy of having something wonderful.

If you’re still making sure everyone else is happy before you say YES…

… if you aren’t doing what’s right for you first and foremost, then you haven’t yet understood the reasons for loving yourself first.

Why did I ensure the first chapter in my book was about loving yourself?

Because everything stems from whether you think you’re worth the investment or not.

Once you’re willing to see you’re NOT SELFISH by loving yourself first, you’ll more easily start taking action on your dreams.

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”  ~~ E.E. Cummings


You’ll stay younger and find things such as radiant health and being your ideal weight becoming a natural by-product.

Place the following sentence on your mirror and say it to yourself every day:

Say, “Listen here __(your name)__… you are precious, special and amazing… and I LOVE you.”

You’ll probably feel silly.

As ridiculous as it sounds it does take a little courage. Some people said they started crying when they said it.

I know you’re precious and I know you’re worth it!

7 DO’s and 3 DON’Ts! Ten Proven Success Activities to Get Anything You Want (Part 2)

Let’s get into Proven Success Activities 6 – 10.

In Part 1 of this two-part series we discussed proven success activities 1 – 5.
Ensure you DO ACTIVITY NUMBER ONE first, because only then will you be motivated to do the other activities.



In short, ACTIVITY is the most potent way to get anything you want.

“By THOUGHT, the thing you want is brought to you;

by ACTION you receive it.”

~~ Wallace D. Wattles

But what do we mean by ACTIVITY? Read on to find out.

6. DO Fail Your Way to Success

“In order to succeed your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.”
~~ Bill Cosby

Do you allow the fear of failure to lock you into endless PROCRASTINATION?

“We can either tiptoe through life and hope we get to death without being too badly bruised or we can live a full life, complete life achieving our goals and realizing our wildest dreams.”
~~ Bob Proctor

Failure is an interesting concept. When something goes “wrong” we think u-oh what does that mean? It merely means you’re on track moving into something better. All you MUST do is stay focused on what you want.

Do you think there are only two directions in life – failure OR success?

How do you see the world?

Failure <– <– YOU –> –> Success1

OR… do you see…

YOU –> –> Failure –> –> Success

Most people think failure is “EITHER/OR”.

Instead, failure is merely feedback and a part of the journey to success. As discussed in the article How Could Every Failure Be a Success?

Why does being WILLING TO FAIL help you get anything you want?

Knowledge and understanding precedes change – see the article Discover the First Key Element to Getting What You Want. Re-frame your beliefs about failure.

Go_For_No__BookIn Go For No by Andrea Waltz and Richard Fenton tell us of a whole psychology embracing failure to achieve faster and bigger success.

They even say “willingness” to fail isn’t enough, it’s essential to develop a “wantingness” to fail. They explain why the faster you fail and the bigger you fail, the faster you’ll achieve success.

When you embrace failure as a path to going bigger, you let go of all the angst and shame surrounding the word.

You’ll see failure as a fun adventure.

You’ll feel safe taking action.

You’ll choose to applaud every ACTION you take as a SUCCESS.

(whether or not the outcome is “seen” as success)

You only fail if you quit. Keep going and success is inevitable.

Of course, if things keep going wrong then it’s time to reassess your direction.

Everything is happening for your good. Hindsight will show you why things happened the way they did and that we’re too quick to judge!

How to fail your way to success:

1. If you’re too afraid to fail, you will never DO anything new. Keep looking for ways to ACT. Don’t wait… Do it.
2. Get more inspiration from Go For No.
(1Sourced from the book Go For No P. 29)

7. DO Choose a GREAT Attitude… and DO keep making it even better

FireworksHow’s your attitude today?

“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal. Nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” ~~ Thomas Jefferson

Why does a GREAT ATTITUDE help you get anything you want?

Attitude is VITAL !!! Without a great attitude, even the most incredible talents and education won’t get you there.

Have a look – many people with multiple degrees aren’t doing well.

It is NOT about education, degrees, talent.

1st comes your ATTITUDE

2nd comes your intelligence, education and talent

“It’s your attitude, not your aptitude that will determine your altitude.”
~~ Zig Ziglar

How to have a great attitude:

You have 100% control over your attitude. Expand your perspective (see Pt 9).

Thinking Into Results is the way I help motivate people into “bettering” their attitude. From GOOD TO GREAT and from AWFUL TO AWESOME. In fact Thinking Into Results moves ALL these 10 success activities into your every day life.

8. DO More Than You’re Paid For

Bee in rose“It is one of the most beautiful compensations in life…that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.”
~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

If your first thought is to GET from a situation or a person, you’ve already lost. What can you GIVE?

Always GIVE your BEST no matter what… now and forever.

Why does DOING MORE than you’re paid for help you get anything you want?

You become what you think about. When your thoughts and actions are ABUNDANT they move you into even greater abundance.

You’ll always be generously rewarded by first being of service and by first GIVING your BEST. Read more about this in my book.

How to start doing more than you’re paid for:

Do what you love! I’m NOT saying live a life of endless grind doing what you hate. Forget that. I AM saying decide what you want (see Part 1) and meanwhile do your best work while staying focused on where you’re going. Your thoughts become things so if you always GIVE your best, you will always GET the best. You will move into what you want.

9. DO Expand Your Perspective


Do you see an old woman or
a young girl?

“Those who say it can’t be done ought to get out of the way of those doing it” ~~ George Bernard Shaw

Perspective is your point of view and there is ALWAYS another point of view in all situations.


Once you can see another viewpoint you cannot “unsee” it. Once the light is on you can’t turn it off! You are forever evolving.

Why does EXPANDING YOUR PERSPECTIVE help you get anything you want?

If you LOOK for a PROBLEM, you will FIND IT.

If you LOOK for an OPPORTUNITY, you will FIND IT.

Most people see situations only ONE way – in their limited way.

The greater your PERSPECTIVE,

the greater your CHOICES,

the greater your RESULTS.

I’ve said for years, “There’s always an answer” and I’ve always found it to be true.

What you LOOK for you will FIND.

How to expand your perspective:

1. PRETEND you can see several points of view.

I know that sounds strange but it works! Ask yourself, “If I were someone who could see two opportunities in this situation – what would they be?”

2. Dream big and you’ll be willing to see other points of view. So get that dream happening. See Part 1.

10. DO Engage Persistence

Waves on beach

Are you persistent or do you give up?

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” ~~ Martin Luther King Jr.

I’ve put this as #10 however LACK OF PERSISTENCE is the main thing causing people to fail. Because THEY QUIT.

As already mentioned, there’s no such thing as failure (Pt.6), because it which can be viewed as many things (use Perspective Pt.9). Feedback, learning, wisdom.
But you WILL fail if you quit.

Most successful people experience some kind of setback on their journey. This is because life is fundamentally about “lessons” and a lesson is repeated until learned. Growth is why you’re here. It’s the journey that makes it fun, not just the destination.

Why does PERSISTENCE help you get anything you want?

It’s simple. Keep taking action and your success is inevitable.

Look at sport. If a basketball or soccer player didn’t keep shooting for the goal, they’d never score.

Most people give up way too easily.

PERSISTENCE will be your friend.

GROWTH your ultimate reward.

How to develop persistence:

1. Make an “advanced decision” to keep going no matter what. Just like you’d book a ticket on an airline and be there on the day no matter what.

If your mind plays tricks on you and encourages you to give up, you can say, “Well, fortunately I’ve made an advanced decision to do xyz every day no matter what.”

2. Look at Andrea and Richard’s Go for No program. This gives you perspective as well as staying power.

Study children. Notice it doesn’t matter how many times you say, “no” they don’t take it personally. They always ask one more time – just in case you’ve changed your mind.

And while you’re here…

The following will HELP YOU DO these 10 proven success activities every day.

1. DO take responsibility for your life. It’s a gift that you DO have control over how you think, feel and act. Use it!

2. DO stop conforming. The need to gain approval from others keeps most people from getting what they want. Become a powerful leader… of yourself! My book and Thinking Into Results show you how to overcome the old programming – and launch yourself into the FREEDOM you deserve.

3. DO hold your BIG EXCITING DREAM in your mind as you DO all these activities. All day, every day.

4. DO have fun. Life can be too serious. Actively look for ways to relax and laugh.

DO the above points with a LIGHT HEART!
