Step 4

In the book "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill, that I mentioned last month, it specifies 4 simple steps which will lead to the habit of persistence. And it states that "Men of persistence have the capacity to master difficulties."

The first one I wrote on last month was "A definite purpose backed by buring desire for its fulfillment." The 4th step is also something those runners who blog will understand. It's, "A friendly alliance with one or more persons who will encourage one to follow through with both plan and purpose."

I started this blog in order to encourage and get encouragement and I appreciate that it is an important factor in achieving success in our sport and life. Thank you to everyone that continues to read and write theirs and eachothers' running blogs.


  1. You are so right about persistence. It is a pity that it takes such a long time to realise the value of persistence or stickability. I also agree with your other points. I am a solo runner although I do have a friend who runs that I chat with regularly. But running alone does teach you persistence!

  2. What about 'women of persistence'? ;)

    Yes Scott, the 4th step is us! A good find.

  3. Yes!!!!!!!!!

    I've found so much support here in blogger is incredible!
    I don't have any runner-friends. There are no communities or running clubs, no races, nothing. I discover running and loved it, but since a year ago when I started "blogging" I am addicted to all the inspiration, support and all the things it gives you. I am so thank with internet :D

    Thanks for your comments as said it is lovely to open my blog and find advices and real experiences!!
