The Eight Factors of Persistence

The mind absorbs and becomes a part of the daily experiences upon which it feeds.

DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE: Knowing what one wants is the first and, perhaps, the most important step towards the development of persistence. 

DESIRE: One has to desire something with all the heart and mind, to put the action in place. 

SELF-BELIEVE: Know thyself.

DEFINITENESS OF PLANS: Plan what you can conceive, and compare it with what you have achieved. Make corrections, additions and subtractions. 

ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE: Do not guess, know it. Search for reliable information, analyse it. Talk to mentors, have their point of view. 

COOPERATION: Sympathy, understanding, and harmonious cooperation with others tend to develop persistence. 

WILL POWER: Nothing is possible if you have enough will to make it happen. Minimize noise, maximise concentration. Visualise your goal to keep yourself focused. 

HABIT: Persistence is the direct result of habit. The mind absorbs and becomes a part of the daily experiences upon which it feeds. Repetition is mighty.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
