Persistence is a definite plan expressed in physical action
It is not a characteristic we are born with, it is not something we have or don’t have. It can’t be given away. It can’t be won.
Persistence is when we focus on getting better than we were yesterday. It is when we go after something of meaning to us. It is knowing that it is possible when everyone else might not see it.
Persistence is learning to walk when we are a baby. It is moving forward regardless. It is saying yes when everyone else is saying no. It is failing time and time again until you succeed. It is learning from your mistakes. It is taking part. It is enjoying the journey.
The courage comes when you know exactly what you want and their is the enjoyment and the excitement there about going to get it.
The faith comes when you know you are prepared and you have practiced.
It’s the law of substitution, you can’t think of two things at ones.
It’s all about the feelings we attached to things. We can choose excitement or fear. We can choose to practice and grow or you can choose to think you only have the skills you have and stay fixed. But we know now can learn and grow.
Therefore I would rather be growing and learning while being happy. It’s not the destination that matters it’s the person we become while we are getting there.
As John Wooden says our character is what we really are. We are building our character with the Master Key System. If we want persistence. It is not a case of just not quitting because not quitting can still mean we are not doing anything and standing still. We need persistent action because knowledge does not apply itself, we need to act. Persistence comes from taking action, our habits. We can learn it, we can teach it to others. It can be part of our character by taking the daily steps to great the habit of persistence towards our purpose. Our plan is our continuous action and we exclude all negativity by following the 7 day diet. The Mastermind keeps us connected and encourages us to follow through with both plan and purpose.
If we look at nature especially the Monarch butterfly when it transfors and travels 1000s of miles, it persists. It doesn’t make excuses, it goes for it’s survival. It doesn’t say it is too hot today or I can’t be bothered or I did too much yesterday. It persits it succeeds. We are part of nature and we can easily tap into this power for persistent action that is within us.
My DMP is to build a property portfolio and I love the action I have been taking towards this. Lately I have noticed a lot more how negative attitudes do have an effect on me even if they are unrelated to my purpose. I have been kindly declining being around negativity. And I realise the people I have been moving towards and connecting with more are like a mastermind for my DMP. This is fantastic.
Do it wrong to get it right
When I was reading scroll two everyday I had love in my heart. It was oozing out of me. I had started a new relationship and we were in the honeymoon period everything was sweet. My DMP was materialising and it felt amazing. However, like anything that you focus too much on, I started to get a bit too obsessed with this new person in my life. I started to care too much about what was happening in his life and it was overriding what was best for myself and my family. It has came to ahead and it was a little bit rough for a patch. The great things is I have got back and focussed on the Master Key Experience and the lessons have got greater meaning. The success was there it just had to be realised by some experiences that did get me off balance first. I had to get it wrong to really appreciate getting it right.
Applying the knowlege
It is so easy to read through the DMP, try the mental diet, read Og etc but applying it all the time is the skill that must to be practiced to be mastered. It’s that fork in the road the choice; we have at every interaction. At the moment I find it so easy when I am on my own but as soon as people are around me that’s when it becomes challenging. I am still holding on to expectations of them. It’s time to let that go and love all of mankind.
