Persistence – The Sustained Effort Necessary to Induce Faith - Chapter 9

Hi Everyone!

We have read in previous chapters the role that faith plays in the manifestation of our desires. Faith is the removal of all fear, and if you are able to grasp the principle that persistence is necessary to induce faith, you can understand the importance of combining the two.

If you understand that persistence will, without a doubt, bring your thoughts and desires into their physical equivalent you will be inducing faith, as you will KNOW that they will be achieved.

With every reorganisation of your plans, your desire will grow stronger. As you repeat this process over and over, it will become a habit for you. Strong desires, strong success.

By removing the negative emotions associated with will-power, it will be no problem to start reorganising and making new plans. Every time you encounter temporary defeat, you will just start reorganising, and as you will KNOW that it is your choice to keep going, will-power will become a positive aspect of your action process.

Anything that we want to excel at takes practice and often we don’t achieve at it first time around. However, just by taking the first step toward your desires, you will actually have achieved something, and that was to induce emotions to back your desires.

Every principle in this book is designed to instil a confidence in the thought:


We started with a list that may have been quite vague, but it is my hope that as you have continued through this book you have kept defining and strengthening your desires. You may have already seen the results of Hill’s principles, and if you haven’t – PERSIST.

The next time you are met with ‘temporary defeat’ – and it is only ever temporary –, will you choose to accept it as failure, or have you understood that the only way to succeed is with persistence?

Happy Manifesting!

My daily affirmation helped me to get through and your thoughts on persistence has definetly helped to pick me back up and give me energy. Thanks for the boost. check out today's affirmation.
