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.
