    Boy, I like this and agree 100%. It is where I am at right now, trying to slay a debt dragon and believing enough in what I am doing to keep digging til I get there. Network marketing is a good industry and I know the rewards are not that far away, and then I can help myself and in turn help others from behind the scenes.

      I owed debt from college when I first started IM and I had $16 in my bank account, I will never forget it. I worked hours and hours on end and at first I was not making any money at all and everyone told me to just get a 9-5 job but I kept persisting. I am now debt free and making some steady money online but I know I this is just the beginning and I still have a lot more to accomplish in IM!

      I know you can definitely slay that debt dragon as well, persistance my friend and drive will get you there, all you have to do is climb on the dragon's back and slay it. Good luck.

    True, there is no substitute for persistence. You can have all the knowledge, wisdom, talent and what not. Without persistent efforts it would be difficult to achieve goals.

      That is true, if you have persistance you will eventually succeed.

    It's great to both feel inspired, and be able to smile.
    That comic brings up a good point, but just being persistent and not fully knowing what you are doing will not get your far.
    That persistence to accomplish something should include the persistence to educate yourself thoroughly, as well as polish your skills everyday.
    Persistence will put you on the winning team, if the majority of your actions and thoughts are proper to your situation.

      Persistence is like the fuel to your car, it will not matter how educated you are or how nice your car is if you have no fuel to run the car! Of course, having general knownledge in IM is important but persistence is what makes someone, super successful!

    Yeah i agree, but i guess you'e more effective if you have the talent, wisdom and persistence. For me it's a masterpiece if you have all of those. Persistence is good if you still have more to give. Unfortunately, persistence has its end, it can and will end.

    Persistence is necessary but not sufficient. One needs a solid plan as well. Otherwise, you could just be stubbornly persisting in spinning your wheels.

      Amen to that! You can be doing 100 mph in 1st gear, and not going forward... You need a PLAN to follow. Success is defined as " The PROGRESSIVE realization, of a PREDETERMINED worthwhile GOAL" Set a goal, make a plan, stick to and follow that plan, one step at a time.

      I think that as long as you have drive, persistence will not end. The reason why IM is great is because you can't have "talent" in IM because there is a lot of variables that go into it such as smart risk taking, hard work, logic etc, that persistence is the only sure thing, when you work on your projects

      I didn't say that you didn't need a solid plan but it is better to take action and stick with it than having a 1 million dollar plan and never taking action and persist, which is even worse.

    Persistence is key to success. Dashrath Manjhi, popularly known as Mountain Man was a living example. It took him 22 years to slit a mountain apart and make a 2km passage. He started hammering the hill in early 1959 in the memory of his wife, who could not be taken to the nearest health care center on time for the immediate treatment as the nearest road that connected them to the city was 50km long.

    Sounds similar to what Will SMith said about his craft as an actor! I totally agree with him! Because when you work at something over and over and over again you will become the best as long as you keep pushing for perfection!

    Persistence is the essence of success. Persistence is kind of the opposite of quitting. Quitting will take you nowhere, no matter how genious you are or how much talent you have.

    That Statement is incredibly accurate. Hard work and determination always beats natural talent.

    For me this is a reflection of a wider truth: success depends on how you think, not on what you know!
