In Napoleon Hills book, “Think and Grow Rich”, he interviews all the world’s millionaire’s to see if there is a common element. He finds that persistence is one key element people with a dream have. They never give up.
Water is the perfect element to think about when we think about persistence. We can see where it has worn away even the hardest rock. We can go to the Grand Canyon and be stunned and amazed by the power of non-resistance and persistence over time.
Note how the river begins; It starts as a little stream, in the mountains. This little stream just runs over the boulders or the fallen tree. It doesn’t stop and wait for its energy to build up so it can push the obstacle out of its path, it just adjusts, moves under, moves around and just keeps moving forward. It is persistent.
The stream is not interested so much in these obstacles as it is about creating a path or getting to where its current pulls it. You and I can use this to understand how persistence ,will get us to our goals.
