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.
