Affirmation for August 23, 2010: Self-perseverance

The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won't.- Henry Ward BeecherThought of the day:Words are powerful tools, especially when it comes to how they affect your mental state. The difference between words like "will" and "won't," "can" and "can't," may mean the difference between achieving your dreams and ... not.Don't let you get in the way of you. Try this: write an affirming phrase, not using a quote from a quotebook, but using words that come from your heart. Sign this with YOUR name, and own that phrase. Everytime you feel like you are faltering, read your phrase back to yourself. Know that these inspiring words came from within you, and use this affirmation to remind you of your inner strength.Have an inspiring day!TeamDS
