Affirmation: I am Persistent

I am persistent. I will never give up. I know that anything worthwhile in life does not come immediately or without hard work. I must stay patient and believe in myself and in my dreams. Most importantly I must try again and again when I meet with defeat. Because I know that eventually I will succeed. I know that the future is in my hands and that is why I must never give up. I deserve my best life possible. I will not settle for anything less.

Being persistent keeps our dreams alive because of the never give up mentality. Life can be a struggle and sometimes we go through defeats along the journey. It is important that we have strong reasons behind our dreams. So that when we are met with defeat we don’t fold under disappointment. Hold those reasons for your dreams closely in your mind. It will build your persistence and almost guarantee a successful outcome in your endeavor.

Belief or faith is one of the most powerful human emotions. When you believe in something the universe begins to move in your favor. Belief is the starting point of all achievement. Before you can have anything in life you must first believe that it is possible for you to possess.

How Bad Do You Want It?

If you want a thing bad enough

To go out and fight for it,

Work day and night for it,

Give up your time and your peace and your sleep for it

If only desire of it

Makes you quite mad enough

Never to tire of it,

Makes you hold all other things tawdry and cheap for it

If life seems all empty and useless without it

And all that you scheme and you dream is about it,

If gladly you’ll sweat for it,

Fret for it,

Plan for it,

Lose all your terror of God or man for it,

If you’ll simply go after that thing that you want.

With all your capacity,

Strength and sagacity,

Faith, hope and confidence, stern pertinacity,

If neither cold poverty, famished and gaunt,

Nor sickness nor pain

Of body or brain

Can turn you away from the thing that you want,

If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,

You’ll get it!

Berton Braley

Do you have something that you desire to have in your life? How badly do you want it? Are you willing to do whatever it takes to bring it to fruition?

See when we want something out of life there is a price that must be paid to receive it. There is no such thing as something for nothing. It isn’t always in the form of money. It consists of time, hard work, sacrifices, and adversity. Most of all it is the denial of immediate gratification that comes from settling for anything less than what you desire. No compromises.

It’s about persistence through the tough times. Taking one more step no matter what happens to you. Because you know deep in your heart that it will be worth it. You are absolutely certain of this. The unwavering faith that sees the end result even when plunged into the depths of darkness.

It’s about going all in. Burning the bridges of retreat, pressing forward with a courageous ferocity that will either succeed or perish. Sink or swim. It’s in this you’ll learn of talents that you never knew you had. Skills and abilities lying dormant within just waiting to be unleashed.

This thing that you want must become a magnificent obsession. Day and night. Every single breath and every second spent on working towards it’s achievement. Standing still and procrastinating is never an option. Just the very thought of it should drive you mad.

No surrender. Quitting isn’t in your vocabulary. Fears and doubts don’t control you anymore. They are instead used for fuel. Disappointment just means you are closer. Adversity means life is just testing you. Defeat is just a learning experience. Nothing can stop you towards the thing you want most.

Life will play a game with you. But you came to win no matter what the cost. You know that life will eventually bend to your will. Nothing can beat the will of a determined individual. You know that life will deliver the thing that you want only after you’ve gone through the test. The price has been paid. What a beautiful process it is.

So I ask you. How bad do you want it?

Don’t You Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit,

Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about,

When he might have won if he stuck it out.

Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow-

You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than

It seems to a faint and faltering man;

Often the struggler has given up

When he might have captured the victor’s cup,

And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,

How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out-

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,

And you can never tell how close you are-

It may be near when it seems afar;

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit-

It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.

-John Greenleaf Whittier

When tough times have us down or when life seems hopeless, one more step is all it might take to change the tide. Whatever it may be that we are going through we must keep moving forward. We must have faith that our lives can be better than our current situations or circumstances.

“Success is failure turned inside out”. We can’t be afraid of failure because in reality failure only exists on one condition. If you quit. The other failures that you may perceive are only temporary defeats. If you keep going you will achieve success in any endeavor that you may choose.

Those down times that you have are learning experiences. The trials, tribulations, adversities, heartbreaks and defeats teach us more about life than our successes. Embrace the experiences. Find some value in these times because they will give you something to change the tide. The one thing you can’t do is quit.

It is when you are hardest hit that you mustn’t quit because at that moment if you try one more time, it could be the success you have been seeking for your life.

So don’t give up. Take one more step regardless of your pain. On the other side is a life of your dreams and if you are still breathing there still is hope for your future. I believe that you can take one more step. I believe that you can have what you desire for your life.

Why Imagination Salvation?

When I decided that I wanted to start a blog I brainstormed several names for the site. I knew what I wanted to write about and the message that I wanted to convey to my readers. After a few names, one stuck and I knew that it would be the name for the blog. Imagination Salvation. It struck a chord with me.

So why Imagination Salvation? It is because I truly believe that the only limitation that we as human beings have is our imagination. Throughout the course of history time and time again the word “impossible” has been evaporated from society when an individual with imagination changed the course of human civilization. When we condition our minds with a positive mental attitude towards a purpose we feel is worthy of coming to fruition, imagination becomes the only limiting factor. We often settle for what we can conceive within our minds of what is possible for our lives based on limiting beliefs that we have set for ourselves.

Our imaginations are a blessing because they allow the finite mind to connect with a higher universal power. But as we grow up and become adults in society that imagination slowly dies. We allow reality to set in and we settle for concrete evidence of life that we can see in our physical world. It is limiting beliefs in our own minds because of external influences of society that we accepted as our realities of what is possible for us to achieve for our lives. It is a crying shame that imagination so often dies this way. Because it is a gift that we must cherish for us to live our life to its maximum potential.

We must revive that imagination that we possess in our minds. The reason being is that our imagination is an immensely powerful force. Through invisible forces it attracts to us ideas, concepts, inventions and theories that can change the course of human history. It also attracts to us everything that we see in our day to day realities and everything that will come to us in the future. We must save our imaginations by cultivating them and nourishes them because they will nourish us in return.

What if I told you that you can achieve anything in life? I mean anything. It is the truth. Your imagination is your only limit in life. Let your imagination run wild. You will live your life to its maximum potential. I believe that its possible for you. Set your goals high and don’t settle for anything less than your best.
