Just like the headline says, this page/board is where you can discuss the stuff that we didn’t cover in today’s issue. (It’s sort of like feedback with a twist) Remember, NO name calling, racial taunting, graphic sex talk and vulgarity in general, PLEASE.

Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: Hold On Tight!

Today’s ‘Live Better’ tip for Success is focused on helping you over come this challenging economy. It is taken from my new book, Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks. Get a copy today…you’ll be glad you did!

We have been talking about the fact that in order to turn your setbacks into comebacks, and eventually into greenbacks it is essential to be persistent and have perseverance. Most people think those two words have the same meaning, by they are actually quite different. Persistence is an action where you continue to work on your goal in an obstinate, repetitive manner. Perseverance is an attitude where you decide that you will not give up. To persevere is to cultivate the attitude that you will get through the tough times and get to a better place in your life. I like the cartoon of the little frog that is holding onto a rope that has a knot in it; the caption reads, ‘‘When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on!’’ I agree! Hold on and do not give up!
