1 Comment


This week in our Master Key Mastermind journey we switched to read the scroll marked 3 for 30 days in Og Mandino’s Greatest Salesman in the World.  The message: I will persist until I succeed!  That is such an important message to live by following the first  i.e. Today I begin a new life and I will greet this day with love in my heart.  There are so many quotes and messages around the topic of persistence and I thought I’d share ten of my favorites with you.  Enjoy
