James Casey called climb the steep.
The first stanza says, For every hill I’ve had the climb, for every rock that bruised my feet, for all the
blood and sweat and grime, for blinding storms and burning heat. My heart sings but a grateful song.
These were the things that made me strong. What kind of story will tough times right in your life,
Poem: To Risk…
To laugh is to risk appearing a fool,
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to another is to risk involvement,
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss.
To love is to risk not being loved in return,
To hope is to risk despair,
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken
Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing does nothing has nothing is nothing.
She may avoid suffering and sorrow,
But she cannot learn, feel, change, grow or live.
Chained by her servitude she is a slave
who has forfeited all freedom.
Only a person who risks is free.
Let Your Pain Be Your Fuel
If you’re not where you want to be, you need to go after it – with everything you have inside of you.
It’s not because of the system.
It’s not because of circumstance.
It’s not because of her or him.
It’s not because of the weather or your boss.
It’s not because your parents said no or the timing wasn’t right.
It’s because you didn’t want to make the sacrifices to get there.
It’s because you didn’t want it bad enough.
You didn’t want to delay – that instant gratification, but now is the time.
This moment right here is what shapes you.
This is what defines you.
Today is what your future depends on.. not yesterday.. not tomorrow.
Today is your way out.
Today is the beginning off your new life.
This is where you get started.
Do you feel that energy right now? That needs to consume you everyday.
Today is your day.. what do you intend to do with it?
Let your pain be your fuel
– Marc Megna
The Road To Success
The road to success is not straight.
There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family.
You will have flat tires called Jobs, but if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perserverance, a driver called Will Power, you will make it to a place called Success.
