Your success in life has a lot more to do with how long you're willing to persist than anything else.

It's about who's willing to get punched in the face the most and still get back up off the ground.

When everyone else quits...

You have to keep going.

You need to develop the persistence, grit, mental toughness, and tenacity to keep pushing along.

Are you going to have days where you don't feel like it?

Of course.

You have to get it done anyway.

Your success in life depends on it.

Here's why...

Why Persistence is Crucial For Success

I like to think of the success journey as a pyramid.

This pyramid represents how many people you're competing against.

At the base of the pyramid, or when you're just getting started, there are a ton of people in competition with you.

After all, the base of a pyramid is much larger than the top.

As the journey gets more difficult...

More and more people quit.

So the higher you climb the pyramid, the less people you're competing against.

The only thing that separates the people who make it to the top of the pyramid and those who don't is persistence.

It's not that some people are capable of success while others aren't...

It's just that the people who do become successful are willing to keep going when nobody else will.

That's it.

It's really that simple.

People just try to make success sound complicated so they can sell you on their "one secret to success."

Don't fall for it.

How To Use Persistence

Becoming someone who is persistent is a choice.

You can either choose to continue...

Or you can choose to quit.

I can't understand how this could be so difficult for some people to comprehend.

While it can help to have solutions ready for when problems arise…

You can't have a contingency plan for everything.

When things get difficult and you don't know what to do...

Find a solution, pivot, and keep going.

This is going to happen all the time...

Especially in business.

Things come up that are going to be completely out of your control.

But, you have a choice.

You can either let the obstacle stand in your way…

Or you can find a way to navigate around it.

In Conclusion

Why do you keep looking for a different answer?

You know what it takes to be successful.

It's not a secret that's been hidden from you...

It's not luck...

It's not talent...

It's not a magical force...

It's one foot in front of the other...

Day after day for a very long time.


That's why persistence is so important for success...

It's literally all it takes.

Go pour every ounce of your blood, sweat, tears, and effort into building something today...

Now repeat this every day for 20 years.

There is LITERALLY a 0% chance that you will not be successful if you do this.

Don’t believe me?

Go try it out for yourself.

You’ll be glad you did.

I truly believe that self-belief is one of the most powerful tools we all have access to.

The problem is, most people see belief as this magical entity that comes and goes at random.

The truth is, we manufacture our own self-belief.

It's through this manufactured self-belief that we're able to go out and accomplish amazing things in our lives...

We've all heard the saying "fake it till you make it."

They say if you make a conscious effort to be something you aren't ... eventually you'll become that person.

That's not how it works.

Pretending to be something you aren't is always a losing strategy...
