Success: How Badly Do You Want It?


The week's Trifecta concerns the lovely little word, "lucky".  Hopefully, I have created something that isn't too cringe-worthy for you all to read.   The man in the video I have included speaks better about this topic that I probably do so enjoy.  :)



Success: How Badly Do You Want It?

How badly
                  do YOU
                                 want it?

How great is the journey
                                     from who,
                                                     you are,
                                     to who,
                                                     you wish to become?

Buy a better mirror?
Exchange silver and gold for the secrets of seers?
Sprinkle good deeds in a garden of hope?

At what point can you achieve success?

The answer lay
                        at the end
                                       of rainbows
                                                         that shipwrecked souls
                                                                                             bear witness.
As lungs flood and blood courses,
arms flail and hands grasp
                                       for salvation on a sword's tip.

That rainbow's treasure is revealed in all its' glory.

One last breath.
One last heartbeat.

At that moment when you recognize the value
                                                                    of one last breath,
                        when you would perform any task
                                                 combat any obstacle
                                                 deny yourself
                                                                     the luxury of excuses


                         when you would do absolutely anything
                                                                                     just to have
                                                                                                       one last breath
Then,
you have achieved
wisdom from that greatest of teachers;
Failure.

There is nothing lucky about success.

How badly
                 do YOU
                               want it?
