One of the motivational poems from the book "The 'As If' Principle" (motivational poetry)

Read this short summary about the poetry from Poetry that Motivates!

Poetry is wonderful. It’s inspirational and motivational - at least it should be. Every poem from this book was penned to hopefully inspire or motivate those who may need a poetic pick-me-up to help them on their way.

Poetry that Motivates features 153 original motivational poems written by Jerald Simon. The various themes of the poems from this book include: hope, happiness, belief, faith, strength, optimism, positivity, nobility, might, experience, improvement, preparedness, perspective, nobility, capability, responsibility, potential, self- improvement, selflessness, restraint, perseverance, humility, courage, virtue, faith, leadership, mentorship, integrity, patience, truth, honesty, creativity, success, accomplishment, overcoming, dreaming, achieving, and so much more.

It is my hope that these motivational poems may encourage someone who needs encouragement. I hope these poems may instill hope to those who feel hopeless, increase faith in those individuals who are faithless, strengthen the weak, and give everyone a greater outlook and perspective on life. We see what we want to see. We believe what we want to believe. As a natural outcome of these beliefs, we experience what we have told ourselves we would experience, and that can limit us if our understanding and thinking is in any way restricting or belittling. The more positive we can be in speaking to ourselves and others, the more positive our overall experiences in life will be. We can make the most of any situation - good or bad. It is my hope that we will look for the good and find it! - Jerald Simon

Here are two poems from the book, Poetry that Motivates...

Befriend the Failure you Fear
by Jerald Simon

Do not fear failure.
Befriend the failure you fear.
   Failure can become a dear friend if you let it.
    But most fear failure, and eventually regret it.

Failure is not a folly fool,
to be avoided, and dreaded, and cursed.
    It is a gift we have been given so we might improve
   the performance we’ve daily rehearsed.

Each step backwards is a friendly failure,
    not a foe to be beaten and bruised.
For with each failure we learn something new,
    though most feel discarded and used.

Do not let failure frighten you,
    face it with faith and might.
Encourage it, and learn from it,
    for each failure can bring you new light.
Feast Upon the Words “I Can”
by Jerald Simon

Be weary of the words “I won’t,
”Be cautious of the words “I can’t,”
   Carefully choose the words you use,
    the dos you do and the don’ts you don’t.

Think about what you tell yourself -
    what you harbor as fear, guilt, or remorse.
For the words you tell your heart are real
   and can alter, at once, your entire life’s course.

The words "I can’t" and the words "I won’t"
instill in one’s self a firm belief.
They dictate what you do
and they become who you’ll be.
“I can’t,” and “I won’t,”
is what despair wants you to believe.

Focus on the words “I will.”
Feast upon the words “I can.”
    Believe in yourself and then create your plan.
Now follow it through
    and become a noble man.

The 'As If' Principle (motivational poetry)...

The Courage to Continue
by Jerald Simon

When others tell you, you can't,
    when everyone says that you won't,
don't listen to them, they're the worst of men,
    continue and do what they don't.

The courage to continue,
    when others retreat and give up,
is a courage to always hold on to,
    to live life and never let up.

Everyone will tell you what you haven't done,
    people often give up right away.
They prefer to quit and often say,
    nothing good ever comes their way.

But if you have courage and do your best,
    and if you continue each day,
you'll live your life and be content,
    and won't listen to what others will say!
Fortress of Faith
by Jerald Simon

A fortress of faith is built by time
    as months and years go by.
The seedlings sprout, hope's blossoms bloom,
    and the fortress extends to the sky.

Our fortress of faith is our fortitude,
    we are strengthened as each day goes by.
But our faith is often tested,
    and often we wonder why.

When our health fails or we lose a job,
    and our faith and patience is tried,
our fortress of faith keeps us fortified,
    it is what keeps us going inside.
