Encouragement: Be Persistent

Don’t just give up, because you have had a setback on your debt-killing plans or your financial road to success. Mistakes happen, learn from them, note them, understand why they happened and then get back on track, don’t just give up. We are all human (I hope) and with that, we are flawed and make mistakes (some of us more than others), but if we simply give up each time we make a mistake we are doomed to live a boring and failure-filled life.

Persistence does pay off, sometimes it feels like the ocean against the rocks, but even the ocean eventually wins!

I like this story, I have heard a few different versions, but it is a good story. Remember to keep on your Financial Plan, and don’t worry if you stumble, get up and keep going. After all, if you stopped after the first time you fell when you were younger, you’d never walk now.

Giving Up Too Soon(Author Unknown)

A man meets a guru in the road. The man asks the guru, “which way is success?”

The berobed, bearded sage speaks not but points to a place off in the distance.

The man, thrilled by the prospect of quick and easy success, rushes off in the appropriate direction. Suddenly, there comes a loud “SPLAT.” Eventually, the man limps back, tattered and stunned, assuming he must have misinterpreted the message. He repeats his question to the guru, who again points silently in the same direction.

The man obediently walks off once more. This time the splat is deafening, and when the man crawls back, he is bloody, broken, tattered, and irate. “I asked you which way is success,” he screams at the guru. “I followed the direction you indicated. And all I got was splatted! No more of this pointing! Talk!”

Only then does the guru speak, and what he says is this: “Success IS that way. Just a little PAST splat.”

Hope your success isn’t just past SPLAT, but stay persistent
