    Do you ever feel that you are beating on a dead horse? Do you wonder if you are just being stubborn? Do you push for those amazon sales even tho you have had no bites yet and no reason to think you even got close? Do you think, if I push hard enough I will just push through every barrier and get there in the end? Do you think you can be the exception to the rule?

    Ok so I am tired n have had a glass or two of wine *hick* but I sometimes wonder if I will break all barriers or if I am just being stubborn.

    Yup, always has for me. Most people "can't" do something because they aren't persistent enough to keep trying until they get it.

    yes! I can't tell you how many times I failed at things only to keep pushing foward to accomplish them. Don't let anyone tell you what you can't do INCLUDING YOURSELF!

    Persistence will pay off, but sometimes it pushes you onto a slightly different path that you hadn't seen before. But without the original persistence you wouldn't have found the slightly different path.

    Persistance does pay off, take me and Hubpages, i gave up on it after my first couple of hubs, but I came back, and now earn quite a nice sum each month from my hubs!

    Persistance, by definition, is only effective if you keep at it!

    Now, with that out of the way; I believe that, your work will pay off, only if you are persistant in driving towards your goals.
    The only exception to this, that I can think of, is a Lottery winner.

    Don't give up! Keep writing! I have had a few bites, nothing huge from Amazon sales yet, too but it is starting - Others are doing well with them and things will pick up for you IF you keep going! wink
