If You Want Something, Go Get It
Poet: Julie Hebert, (c) 2011
If you want something go out and get it,
Stop sitting and wishing you had.
It's time to make dreams a reality,
And stop waiting for things to go bad.
We have everything we need,
To make our dreams come true.
We have endurance and determination all within ourselves,
It's time to put them to good use.
So what will your first order of business be?
Will you plan your journey all out?
The first thing you probably should do,
Is figure out who could give you some help.
As we are very capable of achieving our goals,
A little help is never a bad thing.
Sometimes a little help is just what we need,
To get us into full swing.
How many times have you or your friends said the words, I Wish. Rather
than wishing set a goal, take action, just do it. The Poet is trying to encourage
and make us realize we just have to take that first step, not worry about the next one, just one step at a time. And, she gently reminds us to accept the help of others!
Share these verses with someone you know who is wishing rather than doing!
At the core of life is a hard purposefulness, a determination to live.
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
It takes more than a decision to change your life: it requires determination.
Eric Aronson, Dash
Along with a strong belief in your own inner voice, you also need laser-like focus combined with unwavering determination.
I believed that anything was possible, or at least because I didn't put together everyone else's "facts" and believe that winning was impossible.
Winning isn't always finishing first. Sometimes winning is just finishing.
The spirit, the will to win, and the will to excel are the things that endure. These qualities are so much more important than the events that occur.
