Perhaps more than any other factor, the greatest results and achievements are a product of persistence, the simple, unfailing willingness to keep putting forth effort in the direction of our goal, day after day. 

Persistence is key. If you keep putting forth an effort day after day, eventually you will begin to see progress, and eventually you will reach your goal. Those who do not reach their goal are the ones who, at some point, either stop putting forth the effort, or who die trying.

Without this attitude of persistence, most people fall short of their goals. However, in order to gain the maximum benefit from Persistence, in addition to simply putting forth an effort day after day, it is important that the action taken be Right Action.

Right Action is accurate action. In other words, the Effort you put forth must be action that actually leads in the direction you want to go. Taking Right Action from the outset will ensure that you develop Right Habits that will eventually lead you unfailingly to your goal. However, if you mistakenly take Wrong Action from the outset, you will develop Wrong Habits that may actually inhibit you from realizing your goal, regardless of how faithfully you persist in your Effort. 

In actuality, your progress from the outset may go like this. At first your initial Effort may simply be to establish consistency of action in the first place. Your first task may be to overcome the Resistance of your deeply ingrained daily routine and simply establish the habit of taking persistent action.

Once you have overcome the Resistance and established the Habit of Persistence, it is then time to concentrate on the quality of your effort. Now you need to make sure you get whatever training, instruction and guidance you need to ensure that the efforts you are putting forth are precisely the ones that will lead you exactly where you want to go.

Now you simply need to exercise Persistence, putting forth consistent right effort day after day. It is far better to put forth a small effort each day consisting of right action, than to take massive action at first and then not put forth consistent effort thereafter. The best results are those that are cumulative over a long period. 

In summary, the best recipe for success is an equal-part blend of Persistence, in the form of consistency of Effort, and Right Action.
