How to Develop Persistence

One of my favorite books is Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill.

Think and Grow Rich has been a best-seller for many years, and rightly so.  While it is ostensibly aimed at wanna-be entrepreneur-millionaires, the book has a great collection of advice for people who wish to be successful at any endeavor.  Among the tips contained in the book is a four-part strategy for how to develop persistence.  Persistence is a quality necessary to be successful at the bar exam.

Napoleon Hill's four-part strategy is as follows -- you need:

1.  A definite purpose backed by a burning desire for its fulfillment.

2.  A definite plan, expressed in continuous action.

3.  A mind closed tightly against all negative and discouraging influences, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends, and acquaintances.

4.  A friendly alliance with one or more persons who will encourage you to follow through with both plan and purpose.

So, if you are studying for the bar exam now, make sure that you have all of these four steps covered.  If not, do something about it!  Get to where the hardest part about passing the bar exam is simply waiting for the first day of the test.

Make the studying and the desire givens, and the "pass" is sure to follow.
