We are now half way through the year 2008. Yes, time has flown by. This is a great time to take an inventory. Take a few moments to ponder over where you are now. How far down the road are you on your journey to achieving your goals and desires?
When you wrote your goals, you had motivation and determination to achieve them. Perhaps you even made a blueprint for action. The question here is, Are you sticking to that plan?
You see, a critical key to achieving your goals is the level of your self-confidence, motivation and persistence. For you to succeed in accomplishing your goals you need to build on your self-confidence and exercise consistent persistence no matter what happens.
There is great power in self-confidence and persistence.
Many highly successful people have succeeded despite having lacking money and having limited education. The burning belief in their goals kept them strong and alive; kept the momentum going. They persevered regardless of any lacks and setbacks.
Perseverance prevails over many, if not all, seemingly limiting reasons for not manifesting your goals.
Keep your persistence at a high level. Move forward one step at a time and keep the momentum going. Maintain focus until you reach that quarterly goal.
If you were to feel that your persistence has weakened, go back to your goals. Read them back to yourself a couple of times then close your eyes and imagine you are living that goal. That should re-ignite your perseverance and overcome any lack that stands in your way.
