Success & Failure
“Success is by choice
Mediocrity is also by choice”
Facts you may not know but may surprise & even astound you! These are great men we speak of:
Abraham Lincoln entered the Black Hawk War as a captain & came out as a private.
F. W. Woolworth got a job in a dry goods store when he 21, but his employer wouldn’t let him wait on the customers because he didn’t have enough sense.
Thomas Edison’s teachers told him he was too stupid to learn
Walt Disney was fired by his newspaper editor
because he had “no good ideas”.
The road to success is narrow & crude
That to failure is broad & smooth
It’s easy just to cry
When you fail to even try.
Trying & striving under pressure
Will ultimately yield you pleasure
But should you lack tenacity
You’ll not reach your destiny.
Where you’re heading always seem far & distant
The journey will not end in an instant
It calls for faith & persistence
When frustration crowd your existence.
Success is by choice
Mediocrity is also by choice
What you set out to achieve
Depends upon your own firm belief.
