That rule simply says, “Don’t Quit.” It followed up with these two great quotes:
"Other people and things can stop you temporarily. You're the only one who can do it permanently." -Zig Ziglar
"It's when things get rough and you don't quit that success comes." – Source Unknown
The main reason I persevered without quitting was because the same rule taught me that “The only way to fail in SFI is if you give up.” I was determined and resolved to succeed so I didn’t give up. My persistence has paid off as the rule assured me it was going to. That is my own little story and I think it kind of jells with the stories of many other affiliates who have also persevered.
Let me leave you with other great lessons I learned from SFI Success Rule 15. “And, yes, sometimes it will seem that your efforts are not accomplishing anything, but always remember that even the mightiest oak tree will eventually be felled by the steady chops of even the smallest axe. Persistence always pays off. Worse is the person who does this over and over again. If they had just kept digging instead of moving on to the "next great thing" every few months, they'd already have their gold–and they would have reached it so much sooner!” Need I say more?
Stick with the job my friend no matter the odds. Your own perseverance will see you through.
Best of luck!!
