I help you set compelling goals that offer lasting success.

How Can I Be Persistent In My Goals?
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." Calvin Coolidge.
Persistence is the quality that allows someone to continue doing something or trying to do something even though it is difficult or opposed by other people.
I want you to imagine a carpenter driving a nail into wood. This nail cannot go in if he does not continue to use the hammer to drive the nails in until it is well fitted. What if the carpenter stops the very first or second time he hit the nail. Will the nail drive in? No. The nail will not drive in because it needs continuous action to get it in.
For you to face life’s challenges, you have to be persistent. No matter how life knocks you down, your willpower should always be there to bring you up again. The bible tells us a story of a woman who continually disturbed the unjust judge until he gave in to her request. The judge knew what this woman’s continuous disturbance meant little wonder he granted her request.
It does not matter how many people are ridiculing you, prove them wrong by your continuous action. Many good things in life do not come on the bed of roses. You have to be courageous to sail through.
One of the reasons many people do not persist is a lack of focus. When you shift your focus from your goals to your problems, chances are you will quit very soon. When you focus on your problem, discouragement is bound to set in and when discouragement sets in, a pessimistic mindset begins to develop. Tony Robbins once said ‘Identify your problem, but focus on the solution to your problem’. A great number of people focus on their problems and dwell on them until they are left with no strength to carry on.
How can one be persistent on a goal?
Develop the mindset that it is too late to quit
Learn from your past mistakes. When you fail, experience goes into your bag. Make use of your past experiences to your advantage.
By all means, avoid the habit of complaining. It drains your energy. Your whole body can be weakened in just a few seconds of complaining
Read your goals every day and meditate on them
Surround yourself with people of like passion. You are an average of the people you follow therefore, your circles should be people of like minds.
Focus is a very integral part of successful and fulfilled men. Don’t go for everything, set standards and follow through with your standards.
Make your goals a must.
Stay away from negative thinkers, they are very poisonous.
Think big, start small.
Make small consistent steps daily
Remember to put your goals and ambitions into the hands of God.
Am I making sense?
