The Power That is Persistence

Persistence is sustained effort toward a goal or your Chief Aim in life.

Most people lack persistence and it is the reason most are not wealthy. A lack of persistence is the main cause of failure in life.

Wealthy people have the Rich Habit of being persistent. They simply never give up. They are obsessed with their dreams, goals or main purpose in life and will not stop until they achieve their dreams, goals or Chief Aim in life.

  • 62% of the wealthy are focused on their goals every day.
  • 80% are focused on achieving at least one goal.
  • 55% of the wealthy in my study spent a year or more working towards some goal.
