Today’s ‘Live Better’ tip for Success is focused on helping you overcome this challenging economy. It is taken from my new book, Turn Your Setbacks Into Greenbacks. Get a copy today…you’ll be glad you did!
We have been talking about the fact that in order to turn your setbacks into comebacks, and eventually into greenbacks, it is essential to be persistent and have perseverance. Most people think that they are the same thing, but they are quite different. Persistence is an action where you continue to work on your goal in an obstinate, repetitive manner. Perseverance is an attitude where you decide that you will not give up. A belief that somehow-some way, you will eventually succeed. Persistence is when you decide to keep hitting, keep fighting and keep working on your goal until you achieve it.

I like to say that ‘‘persistence breaks down resistance!’’ Visit my website at www.williejolley.com for more information on turning your setbacks into greenbacks, and make this a great day!
