Perseverance might be defined as a steady course of action, with a stated or affirmed purpose, especially in spite of difficulties along the way, including obstacles and discouragement, resulting in an accomplished goal, or net result.
In a recent lecture, in Virginia, Zija® Diamond Executive Tony Flemming gave, and I have amended it a bit, a talk; it goes something like this: The Devil is having a Yard Sale cleaning out His garage. First, the Devil brings out a barrel of GREED & JEALOUSLY, and sure enough it’s quickly sold out! Secondly, The Devil puts outa bin of HATE & SPITE, and without much effort, folks come and buy it up, until all is gone. Thirdly, The Devil pulls out a large tub of DISEASE & ILLNESS, and before The Devil can even finish removing it entirely from his garage, it too is sold out. Fourthly, The Devil puts out a large basket of LIES & EGO; it also sells out. The Yard Sale is over, but just as The Devil is closing up shop for the day, a straggler points to a worn out WEDGE in the back corner of the garage, and asks The Devil “How Much For The Wedge?” The Devil replies; “It’s Not For Sale.” The straggler retorts; “What Do You Mean? It’s Old, Worn Out, And Useless.” ”No” says The Devil, “That’s The Wedge Of Discouragement, and it’s all I need to Destroy The World.”
Now, I do not know if you are much of a baseball fan, but if you missed GAME 6 of The World Series, on television, the night before last (despite professional baseball being an entertainment business) you missed a true lesson in PERSEVERANCE.
The St. Louis Cardinals, a Wild Card long shot, at best, to even make The Playoffs, let alone The World Series, proved, once again, that TEAM WORK and FOCUS can overcome insurmountable odds.
I am telling you this was a baseball game FOR THE AGES!
Despite extreme adversity, The Cardinals battled back against what appeared to be superior offense and defense from The Texas Rangers, down to their last pitch, not once, but twice, in two separate innings, to then win, in extra innings (and then take Game 7 last night for The 2011 Championship).
The lesson is NEVER GIVE UP.
Now you have been provided an opportunity, complete with systems and virtually no capital outlay or risk, to WIN life-long wellness and financial health for yourselves, families, friends, and beyond, in a pure hybrid model with Zija® International, with the most efficacious safe products, from the most nutrient dense and scientifically proven botanical, of the correct varietal of moringa, on the planet, that truly works. The empirical science is irrefutable.
Hello?! Earth To YOU! Do You GET IT?!
Yesterday, I received a telephone call from an individual who has seen marked and measured beneficial results in their wellness by taking Zija®, but then told me “they were discouraged” because they could not seem to get others interested, so they could achieve the simple goal of getting their product paid for. I told them to plug into the SYSTEM that is in place for their success. I do not know if they will, or they will not; but I pray so.
As the old adage goes: “You can bring a horse to water, but you can’t make then drink”. We want everyone to be “Drinking Life In!”
Now the system in place for your success is simple, but I did not say it was not easy. Imagine (note sarcasm), you actually might have to get out of your comfort zone, or self imposed lethargy, to achieve your stated, ”WHY”!
Be not afraid to fail, be very afraid of not trying again and learning from those failures.
Louis ‘Satchmo’ Armstrong was once asked “WHAT IS JAZZ?” Armstrong replied: “If you have to ask, you will never know.”
I have told you before, and I will tell you again, as drilled into me by the late great Dick Feynman, Cal Tech Physicist, The Manhattan Project Math Wizard, and Nobel Laureate: “Never confuse activity with results”.
It’s the RESULTS that count, now, and always.
DRINK LIFE IN!
