Tip o’ the Morning to Ya – Universal Law of Persistence

Rich Habits Word of the Day

Tenacity – Persistence. Tom’s persistence in sharing his research eventually paid off.

Rich Habits Fact of the Day

John Grisham, one of the most successful authors in the world, was a lawyer who loved to write. His first book A Time to Kill took three years to write. The book was rejected 28 times until he got one yes for a 5,000 copy print. Unable to sell any of the 5,000 books, Grisham’s agent told him to move on and Grisham began work on his second book: The Firm. The agent sent the book to someone he knew in Hollywood and they liked it so much they agreed to turn it into a movie. Once word got out that Tom Cruise was going to be in the movie, book sales skyrocketed. He’s sold over 250 million total copies of his books.

Rich Habits Lesson of the Day

The measure of success can be shown by how many times someone keeps going despite hearing only no. The ability to move from one disappointment to the next without giving up is a common theme among the wealthy. 27% of the wealthy in my study admitted to failing at least once in life in business. Success is built on a mountain of mistakes. The more mistakes the higher your mountain.
