Persist To Success

By Lora Newman, M.S., LPC Mastery Certified Coach

Persistence is key to success because you will be presented with many moments to give up and quit. That is exactly what happens to many entrepreneurs, rejection happens, results don’t happen as expected or desired, or some other situation occurs causing the an interpretation about yourself that isn’t altogether true.

For example, let’s say that you take steps to grow your business and it doesn’t turn out as desired, it is easy to fall into the trap of, “I didn’t do it right, I didn’t have the right thing to say (assuming that there are magical words to influence the other person), there is something more I could have done, etc…

The underlying message in all of this is: “Not good enough or not enough”

You are already more than enough and yes, there are learning curves. I’ve been in a learning curve for over 52 years. The curve takes harder turns at times, especially in the last 19 years of my coaching practice and with horses.

The key to success is showing yourself grace and being persistent in going again. Persist in the mental state of what you desire, take the next step toward that everyday and allow yourself the grace to drop the ball because you will. I do on a daily basis and it’s ok. I meet with my team, look at the learning and go again persisting in the desired outcome.

Building a business takes courage because you are putting yourself out there on a daily basis. The more you do, the greater your confidence grows because you learn to trust yourself more and more to handle whatever comes your way and to acknowledge when you just don’t know and are willing to find the answer to go again.

Persist – persist in the desired outcomes.

Persist in your vision for your Equine Assisted Learning / Coaching Practice or Equine Facilitated Learning / Coaching Practice. I don’t mean to leave out the Equine Assisted / Facilitated Psychotherapy folks here. It is the same for you – persist.

Persist in your graciousness to yourself - giving yourself space to drop the ball and sharpen your game.

Keep going – you will get there. It’s more about the journey than the destination, but platitudes don’t win the game….persistence in action does.
