Spiritual Foundations: You Already Have All the Faith You Need

Like everything else in the Bible, faith is all about Jesus.

He is the author (the maker or creator) of our faith and he is the finisher.

He completes it, fills in the gaps, and strengthens the weak places of our faith. Romans 12:2

The faith of Jesus is all the faith you will ever need!

None of God’s promises are dependent on your effort or level of faith.

You can’t work up enough faith to get the job done.

Tap into the faith of Jesus. His faith is perfect – and it’s all the faith you need!

Feature Presentation “5 Strategies to Make You More Persistent“

There is always some measure of persistence in any success story. But giving up offers no hope of success.

Regardless of the outcome, persisting through tough times and overwhelming odds becomes part of the victory. Here are a few reasons to persist:

•Persistence gets results.

Few things in life worth achieving are gained without persistence. Nearly all successful people look up to have a long, hard trail of failures behind them, through which they persisted . The harder you work, the luckier you get.

•Persistence sets you apart from everyone else.

Anyone can quit. Quitting is the easy way out. Persisting puts you in a whole different class of the elite.

•Persistence builds character.

Giving up takes no effort. Giving up gives one a false sense of relief that ultimately Feels like defeat. Any growth of muscle or character requires resistance training.

•Persistence always offers some measure of success.

Just by hanging in there, you’ve accomplished more than most. But in quitting there is no success. Abraham Lincoln, a man all too familiar with failure said, “If you are resolutely determined to accomplish some thing, the thing is more than half done already. Always bear in mind that your resolution to succeed is more important than any other thing.”

But when the bills are piling up and everyone is telling you to hang it up and get a “real job,” it’s hard to persist. How do you maintain persistence in the face of so much apparent failure and resistance?

Here are 5 Strategies for Boosting Persistence:

•Believe in yourself and what you have to offer.

Sylvester Stallone was rejected by more than 600 casting agents before developing his Rocky screenplay. His first film took in $117 million (in 1976 dollars) and made him more than $5 million.

“Belief is the thermostat that regulates what we accomplish in life. A person is a product of his own thoughts. Believe BIG! Adjust your thermostat forward. Launch your success offensive with honest, sincere belief that you can succeed. Believe big and grow big.” — David J. Schwartz from The Magic of Thinking Big

•Keep trying new things.

Keep trying new things. The Wright Brothers experienced thousands of failed experiments before getting it right. Discover your niche. Experiment. “The way to succeed is to double your failure rate.” — Thomas J. Watson, founder of IBM.

•Redefine failure.

View minor failed experiments as learning experiences. Now you know one more way not to succeed. Instead, view quitting as a failure. As long as you persist, you haven’t failed.

•When you fall, keep getting up.

Expect to fall, trip, and stumble, but keep getting up. And soon you’ll find that your business is not only walking but running like a gazelle.

•Don’t listen to naysayers.

When Mark Victor Hansen and Jack Canfield wrote the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, they were rejected by 140 publishers. Publishers told them the book wouldn’t Sell. But when the two authors finally landed a contract with a publisher willing to take a risk, their books sold over 100 million copies! Don’t listen to naysayers. Instead spend time with those who believe in you, support you, and encourage you. Persistence is a key ingredient for success. So, keep at it. Don’t give up. Persist, because success is right around the corner
