Andy Andrews I Will Persist Without Exception
I will persit without exception.
In his book Mastering the Seven Decisions, Andy Andrews says that without the decision to persist, without exception, the other six decisions are meaningless.Of course, it's the phrase "without exception" that is the key to this principle. Most people decide to persist until they quit ... which is not the same thing as persisting, without exception.
If you have truly decided that you are going to achieve what you set out to do, then you control the rules of the game, and the game is on until you win.
No matter how long it takes.
Anytime that you attempt something that is truly worth having, you are going to encounter obstacles. Most great achievements are difficult; that's part of what makes them great. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
Adversity is preparation for greatness.
In Andy Andrews' book Traveler's Gift, David Ponder recieves the seventh decision of personal success from the Archangel Gabriel. "God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing!"
