“Patience, persistence, and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” ~ Napoleon Hill
In other words – commitment.
What follows choice.
And culminates with the finish.
Commitment is not simply deciding to follow a certain path or make some type of change in the way you go about things. True commitment is more akin to a covenant.
The intentional approach one takes in a spiritual, mental and physical sense to aspire, achieve and then, succeed.
Believe it or not, the three P’s tend to govern commitment.
First, there is patience.
But another way to speak to faith and illustrate its genuine importance. The deeply held belief that no matter what, I am sticking with it. Part of a contract made with yourself to do so until your efforts are affirmed and rewarded.
Persistence is attitude.
The mindset you adopt to nourish your patience while granting action a needed and constant boost of energy. A temperament meant to transform you from what you were to what you are meant to be.
The residue of effort. Mostly physical. But sometimes the by-product of taxing mental and spiritual endeavors. The proof of personal investment. What waters the seeds of success.
An unbeatable combination.
The ideal recipe for success.
