Being persistent is the number one pattern that will enable you to create success in your life. When you persist and persevere until you reach your goal, you can accomplish so much more than if you give up when you are bored or when challenges arise.
One thing is true of everyone who has reached large goals. They all persisted until they succeeded. Many people start worthy projects, but they give up before they reach the goal that they set for themselves.
Self-talk is the source of someone's ability or failure to persist and persevere. What is the self-talk of persistence?
"I'll keep on going as long as it takes. What I'm working on is worth the investment of time and energy."
"As I build up the habit of persisting, I can accomplish many more things in my life. So it's not only the present project that I will be completing. Finishing this project will help me achieve in more and more ways."
"I feel great about being persistent. I am building my entire character in the process."
"I see the goal that I am striving for. I am enjoying every step along the way."
Always learn from your past successes. Think of instances when you persisted and were later glad that you did. What did you tell yourself to enable yourself to persist? Tell yourself similar things when you want to persist in the future.

Got this from a friend in Israel..
Many Golani soldiers reported this: A few Hamas terrorists were captured and interrogated . We asked them, "if you had these tunnels for so long, how come they were never used to kidnap or kill Israelis?" They answered: "we were digging and building for 2 years. Many tunnels ran 25 feet below the surface all the way into Israel. We prepared for 2 years and were ready to use them this Rosh Hashanah. The plan was to attack with 125-130 terrorists in each tunnel (40 found so far), armed and dressed as IDF soldiers. On Rosh Hashanah, we were to set off explosions and kill as many Jews as possible. That is when most guards are off in shul for the 2 day holiday. We planed to kidnap as many Jews possible, and hide them in Gaza as human shields. It would have been the end of israel, we would have taken over. All of the Hamas terrorists were going in, and they were almost ready--only 2 months left! This Rosh Hashana they were going to do this! And our war now saved our lives." The tragic deaths of the three boys kidnapped enabled the IDF to find these tunnels before mass destruction took place. Please share this story if you love Israel and support their cause. People must know.
