Have you ever felt like becoming happy and successful was like banging your head against a wall – all effort and pain and no results? If you have, you can join the many other women who have felt that way.
No wait! Don’t join that crowd!
Those women are the ones who persist (bang their heads against the wall) until they get so frustrated that they give up. Then they stop – and decide something like, “If God wanted me to [go back to school/own a successful company/get a promotion/etc], it would be easier. Maybe this isn’t what I’m supposed to do.” And they quit, do back to their unfulfilled lives and settle.
Persistence doesn’t mean being crazy (definition: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result). If you want to be persistent, consider marketing guru Seth Godin’s definition as your thought model: "Persistence isn't using the same tactics over and over. That's just annoying. Persistence is having the same goal over and over."
This month we’re going to talk about what it means to be persistent in terms of victory, achieving your goals, and being happy and successful.
