Why to persist

Don't get bogged down looking for a way to persist. Just make sure you're absolutely clear on why you have chosen to persist.

When there is an authentic why, there is true motivation. When there is a real, solid meaningful why, there is action.

Many times that action won't initially bring the desired results. When that happens, the most effective response is more action that's been informed and adjusted as a result of the previous attempt.

Even if you have no clue what to do, the way to learn is to do something and discover what happens. And the thing that will get you to do something, and then to do more, is knowing why.

There is no secret technique to discipline. There is no closely guarded insider information on how to persist.

You already know how to start, and how to keep going, and how to persist until you achieve the objective. To utilize that knowledge and that discipline, all you have to do is to truly know why.
