Publisher's Summary

Many people in life talk about wanting to achieve something. So many people have lofty goals, dreams, and aspirations, but not many people follow through with realizing them. And, in fact, many people move further and further away from them with each passing day.
Why is that?
Life can be convoluted at times. Sometimes, we're merely in reactionary mode and we lose sight of what we're aiming for. We're so busy responding to external stimuli, that we forget about the goals that are important to us, and we slip back into our negative patterns of behavior.
By understanding our underlying beliefs, habits, and the reasons why we really want the things that we do, we can renew a start of pushing towards the life of our dreams.
Learn to Live an Extraordinary Life
There are a lot of resources out there touting to be the answer to our desires. From get-rich-quick schemes to fad weight-loss diets, we see them everywhere we turn. And, this seemingly ceaseless cycle of bombardment has us chasing our tails from left to right. It's time to exit the perpetual cycle of defeat and failure, and start living an extraordinary life.
The Art of Persistence is about learning to reboot your life and assess what really matters to you. It's about how you can leverage some of the simple secrets to long-term success to move you closer and closer to your dreams each and every single passing day.
From a foundational psychological understanding of why we do the things we do, to a formulaic approach to achieving anything in life, this book sheds light on the subject of goal setting in a whole new way.
Moving Past Failure
The most difficult part about achieving our goals in life, is coming up against failure. We've all failed many times, but how many of us have been able to use those failures as building blocks? How many people have been able to leverage their failures as stepping-stones to really succeeding in life?
Most of the time, we're in the midst of a fear that grips us, forcing us to hold back our dreams for success in life. When fear takes over, the mind shuts down, retreating from the potential for pain. Learn how to leverage the pain and pleasure paradigm to fuel you, and build an awareness to what it is you really want in life.
