20150813_140420My adoptive mother Joan Brooks passed away in 2016, but she would have been 80 years old this past Thanksgiving weekend.  I am so fortunate that Joan gave her all as my mother.   She definitely paid it forward in terms of her love and care for me.  And I want to pay it forward for you, as you will see below.

The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn the corner.

The words above are from Scroll III in Mandino’s book The Greatest Salesman in the World.  This passage really resonates with me as I help my network marketing team grow and succeed nationally.  I know that belief does not come from success.  Success actually comes from belief.  The correct order is BE, then DO, then HAVE.  Because of my belief, I am persistent.

Always will I take another step.  If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another.  In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.

Persistence, baby, in pursuit of perfection!

Henceforth, I will consider each day’s effort as but one blow of my blade against a mighty oak. The first blow may cause not a tremor in the wood, nor the second, nor the third. Each blow, of itself, may be trifling, and seem of no consequence. Yet from childish swipes the oak will eventually tumble. So it will be with my efforts of today. I will be liken to the rain drop which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger… I will persist until I succeed.

pay-it-forwardTo achieve my Definite Major Purpose, it takes persistence.  I am creating a “Life by Design”, with a happy balance of work, play, workouts, and family.  I am proud to help people earn Free Energy and Free Wireless Phone Service, and also to help people make life-changing money to enable their own amazing realities.  I cheerfully share my opportunity – paying it forward – and create productive networkers by teaching them exactly what to say and do to be successful.  I continue to do this, regardless of how long it takes or how many times I am told, “No Thanks.”  I am persistent.

So long as there is breath in me, that long will I persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles of success; if I persist long enough I will win.  I will persist. I will win.

In summary, to have persistence and success, you will need:  (1) A definite major purpose (DMP) backed by a burning desire, (2) A written plan of action (WPOA) expressed in continuous action, (3) A positive mental attitude (PMA), with your mind closed to all negative thought, and (4) a Master Mind Alliance, such as the course I am in, or it can be communication with an individual with whom you are in total harmony.

This video may inspire you to persistently pay it forward:


I am elated to be a Servant Leader who knows, goes and shows the way, and because of this I am very wealthy for life.

I have come so far already.  Today I begin a new life.

It is definitely time to ‘Think and Grow Rich’.
