Furthermore, I remove words from my vocabulary such as ‘quit’, ‘cannot’, ‘unable’, ‘impossible’, ‘out of the question’, ‘improbable’, ‘failure’, ‘unworkable’, ‘hopeless’, ‘retreat’ and ‘no way’, for they are the words of fools. I avoid despair. Persistency is a prerequisite to win. Keep going, persist irrespective of the circumstances.

No-one tells me what to do. “I am not a sheep that needs to be prodded into action. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.” Og Mandino

I go out and do what needs to be done. I do not listen to those who moan and complain for fear that I may be infected with their disease. But if this disease of the mind should infect me, then I ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep my eyes on the goals above me confident in the knowledge that where the dry desert ends, green grass grows.

I persist until I succeed and win. I do not let words like failure and defeat become part of my vocabulary. Persist irrespective of the circumstances.I persist until I succeed. The price of a life can only be equated at the end of each journey, not near the beginning. I may not know how many steps I will need to take in order to reach my goal and I realise that failure could be waiting for me at my thousandth step. Yet, by the same token, success could be hiding behind the next bend in the road. If I never turn that corner, I will never know how close it lies. I must continue, step by step, until I succeed.

I persist until I succeed. I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking. The key is to carry on, regardless.

I persist until I succeed. According to the ancient law of averages, I keep reminding myself that, with each failure to sell comes the increased chance of success the next time. “Each misfortune I encounter carries in it the seed of tomorrow’s good luck.”Og Mandino

I persist until I succeed and win. I do not let words like failure and defeat become part of my vocabulary. Persist irrespective of the circumstances.

I persist until I succeed. Just because I have been successful in business yesterday, does not mean I will become complacent today. This is the basis of all failure. I must put the happenings of the previous day behind me, no matter whether the sales were good or bad. Today is a new day which I greet with confidence, knowing that this is the best day of my life. I stand firm in the knowledge that this is one of the greatest principles of success. “If I persist long enough, I win.” Og Mandino.

I persist! I win!
