The will to win

I got a mail from my dad, which I thought is worth sharing here with my blogger friends. 

The Will To Win
If you want a thing bad enough
To go out and fight for it,
Work day and night for it,
Give up your time and your peace and
your sleep for it
If only desire of it
Makes you quite mad enough
Never to tire of it,
Makes you hold all other things tawdry
and cheap for it
If life seems all empty and useless without it
And all that you scheme and you dream is about it,
If gladly you'll sweat for it,
Fret for it, Plan for it,
Lose all your terror of God or man for it,
If you'll simply go after that thing that you want.
With all your capacity,
Strength and sagacity,
Faith, hope and confidence, stern pertinacity,
If neither cold poverty, famished and gaunt,
Nor sickness nor pain
Of body or brain
Can turn you away from the thing that you want,
If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,
You'll get it!

Remember, there are no mistakes, only lessons. Love yourself, trust your choices, and everything is possible.

Read all pending posts or rather poems mostly. May God bless Sanvi with all the happiness always. Children are image of God. It is a pity that people mistake smile as weakness or dumbness. They never can understand how strong the person who smile on everything is, hiding such pain at times. Change is the only thing constant in life. I agree with you that there may not be anyone who can claim to have never lied. But at times telling lies may be good as said in story Mr Know All by, I think, Maughm. This poem is very motivational and reminds me of story of King Bruce and the Spider.

Take care
