The "As If" Principle (motivational poetry) by Jerald M. Simon features 222 original motivational poems written by Jerald to inspire and motivate men and women, businesses and organizations, leaders/mentors/advisers and teachers and students. The poems were written to teach values, bring out the best in people, and encourage everyone everywhere to be and do their best. The poems were written over a 20 year period (1993 - 2012) and contain motivational advice about never giving up, doing what it takes, believing in yourself and your abilities and believing in others - in the best that others can do - in their dreams, aspirations, goals, plans, purpose, and possibility. The poems focus on such topics as: Believing, Honor, Courage, Success, Strength, Will Power, Leadership, Possibility, Confidence, Goals and Goal Setting, Optimism, Rising Above Mediocrity, Character and Heart, Never Doubting Yourself, Being Productive, Thinking and Knowing You Can, Learning from Adversity, Doing What It Takes and What Must Be Done, Smiling and Being Happy, Seeing the Good In Others, Forgiving, Seeing Our Own Potential and the Potential of Others, Learning Life Lessons, Righting the Wrong, Being a Self Starter, Learning to Control Our Words, and many more. Here is the first poem from the book "The 'As If' Principle": Act as If... by Jerald M. Simon Copyright © 2012 by Jerald M. Simon All Rights Reserved Act as if you are confident - even if you are not. Confidence, you will find, is a state of mind, the fulfillment of attitude evolving with time. True confidence is a trait of character, not a boastful or prideful talk. Always act with sincere humility, then with true confidence you will walk. Act as if you are affluent, even when you're the beggar in need. Wealth you will find, will often leave you behind, if it's attainment will make you unkind. True wealth is not measured with money, but with love, and knowledge and health. Act as if you're least of all men, and then you shall find true wealth. Act as if you are noble, even if your nobility's numb. Act as if you are a servant, even if your own kingdom has come. When you act 'as if' you are foretelling your fate, your future is already known. Act as if it is possible, and the seeds of fulfillment are sown. Copyright © 2012 by Jerald M.
