Positive Affirmations

~ Part 6 ~
Some Daily Statements on Developing Persistence

Positive self talk is critical for personal development. This set of daily affirmations originally comes from Harold Sherman, author of How to Turn Failure into Success. This "code of persistence" was copied from another source, however, and I'm not sure where I found it. Great statements to memorize though!
  1. I will never give up as long as I know I am right.
  2. I will believe that all things will work out for me if I hang on to the end.
  3. I will be courageous and undismayed in the face of poor odds.
  4. I will not permit anyone to intimidate or deter me from my goals.
  5. I will fight to overcome all physical handicaps and setbacks.
  6. I will try again and again and yet again to accomplish what I desire.
  7. I will take new faith and resolution from the knowledge that all successful men and women have had to fight defeat and adversity.
  8. I will never surrender to discouragement or despair no matter what seeming obstacles may confront me.
For those who are interested, I have linked solid scriptural principles to each of these statements and turned them into biblical affirmations as well. Email me and I'll send the references to you.

If only we have this kind of attitude, success wouldn't be far from us. A positive outlook on things is the main factor we should consider. Developing this attitude will broaden our view in life.

Those are very inpirational words. It really suggests that we must keep going on with our lives with a positive affirmation. Thanks for sharing it to everyone.

The trick is to "keep going" - isn't it? So many people give up after a bit of struggle thinking that maybe God is closing a door. My take is that struggles come naturally and that God wants us to push through - it's the devil that wants us to quit! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Lyn

PS Good article you link to regarding success. lgp

"I will believe that all things will work out for me if I hang on to the end." This affirmation should be rewritten "All things will work out for me if I hang on to the end."

Will puts the action out into the future, you're not going to do it now but you will one day kind of thing. For more information on writing affirmations check out this fantastic positive affirmation resource.
