Imagine what would happen if you just didn’t give up, if you promised yourself that you would keep going, regardless of what happened. What would that feel like? You would have a determination that rarely faltered, and if it did, you’d just get it back. Think…how long could people resist you if you simply refused to give up? How long could customers or readers or supporters stay away? It’s your will against theirs; someone will have to give in. Either you’ll give in and fail, or they’ll give in and support you.

Imagine if you just refused to fail, if you swore to yourself that you would “act as though it were impossible to fail.” Imagine that. How would you suddenly be perceived? How confident would you seem, and how would that confidence change the course of your goal? Imagine if you knew in the back of your head, without a doubt, that you would succeed in your endeavor.

Imagine if everything in your life was something that could help you reach your goal, if everything that seemed to plaguing other people was inconsequential or even beneficial to you. Imagine if every negative thing that came your way just turned itself around and became a positive thing to help you keep going.

You don’t have to imagine these things. Resolve yourself to keep pushing, deny the illusion of failure, and learn to benefit from the things that would normally harm you or set you back.

It isn’t easy, but I’m sure you can imagine…it’s worth it.
