A commitment to persist is a key habit leading to success writes Og Mandino. Sly Stallone age 69, is a success and he says, “you me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life but, it ain’t about how hard you’re hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much can you take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”.
These two men have similar thoughts on views on persistence. Like the young bulls described in the scroll marked III. They were to be scored based on their persistence and how many times they tried again, and again to charge the Picadors.
It has been this week that resolve’s head has been raised. Just as Mark said on our Sunday Mastermind, it has been the renewed Guy in the Glass exercise. Looking yourself in the eye, and in the long view of life, stating that you will not attempt to deceive yourself or others because. So, that combined with daily promises to follow-thru and succeed on delivering my hand-written charter called the DMP.
The above seems a strain to keep up and then… this message in my email; and my “struggles” seems just an excuse!
I’m just completing my post and see an email come from one of my associates from within the Master Key Experience (MKMMA) course. It’s Day Boswell and she has a post entitled Week 12 – Tis the Season … of Family. Now I know there are those here in the mastermind on whom Sly Stallone (aka Rocky Balboa) has nothing on them in the way of persistence in the face of life kicking them around a bit!
Just read her post and see how she easily steps, like a matador to one side, of life’s big challenges with poise and a grounded spirit that almost defies comprehension. Family passing, new children coming into the world, pointed emotional conversations with other family, daughter in surgery needing support and yet the thinker, compassionate side shines through as only Rudolph could to light the way for others to follow. Thank you Day for the exemplary life you lead, sharing it with others like myself in the Master Key Mastermind and for increasing the harmony across the fabric of our lives as your boat raises all others in this harbor.
