    Persistence. John Quincy Adams once said that "Patience and perseverance Hypnosis Live Review  have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish." The dictionary defines persistence as continuing to exist despite interference. Persistence is pressing on even when you feel like quitting. If you don't run into some type of obstacle along the way, it may be that your goal is not challenging enough. Obstacles and challenges are to be expected on the road to success. Continuing to take action will eventually lead to results. Successful people will continue to move forward even with the interference of obstacles or challenges. They will address the challenges and never give up. Walt Disney was rejected more than 300 times before he was able to secure financing to build Disney World. Colonel Sanders was rejected more than 1,000 times but still persisted! Both men persevered until their dreams became realities.

    Self-confidence. Jack Welch once said "Confidence gives you courage and extends your reach. It lets you take greater risks and achieve far more than you ever thought possible". People who lack self-confidence often find it hard to succeed. This creates a vicious cycle of lack of self-confidence and lack of success. However, a confident person inspires confidence in others and is able to create success for themselves. It's the same cycle, only with a different name -self-confidence and success. The confident person doesn't take rejection personally or let it affect their confidence. They keep moving on. We all have insecurities but the key is to not let them affect our self-confidence.

    Learning. Learning from our obstacles, challenges and disappointments is key to becoming successful. These situations often provide the information that we need to eventually become successful and to progress in our work. The truth is that we learn more from mistakes than from successes. Remember the story of Thomas Edison? He encountered many, many challenges and failures over his career. In his own words, "I have not failed 700 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work." Many of his inventions are part of our everyday lives.

    Focus. The Law of Attraction tells us that we get what we focus on. To successfully achieve our goals, we need to focus our attention on the goal. Without a clear focus, it becomes easy to get distracted and thrown off course by challenges or obstacles. This means you should have clearly defined, written goals to work from. These written goals will help you identify the most important steps you should take. If you find yourself distracted or off course, refocus on your goals.
