I thought you’d love to see a great example of the power of persistence and how to be successful from none other than Macintosh! Who said cat’s don’t think? Obviously someone who does not know them. Watch these 2 short clips of the fabulous Mac closely!
In the first one, he wanted out, got to the door and stuck a paw out to open it. Not happening, so he slunk away. Does that remind you of starting to do something, and when you don’t get the result you want immediately, you give up on it?
Between both clips, Mac was hoping I would open the door for him – he tried every trick he knew, meowed, stood by the door, buttered up to me, but that did not work this time.
When he decided that I wasn’t going to help out any time soon, he makes up his mind to find his way out. Notice how he sticks his paw in the gap, and gives the door several taps until he gains some momentum and then…. voila, it’s open enough for him to walk through? It’s pretty obvious he could not get it open in one shot – he had to work at it strategically, and he did, SUCCESS!
I know this to be true: there is no such thing as instant success.
Action and Persistence are at the heart of SUCCESS.
Once we start working at it, we gain momentum, and success is in our sights. Thanks, Mac for that reminder ^_^
