Crosby_Beach_What will you be remembered for?
They are watching, don’t you know?
Every time you walk inside that door,
They want to see just where you go.

Every action that you take,
Defines the legacy you leave
Each decision that you make
Creates the truth from make-belive

Think twice before you see it through
Is this the way you’ll be remembered
If this is the last thing you do
If tonight your life is severed?

Live every day to its potential
Live it the best you can
Every action is consequential,
Move forward, take your stand.

You may not always win. You might not always score. But so long as there is oxygen in your lungs, blood in your veins, and a beat in your heart, you haven’t lost yet. So long as you press on, working hard every day, you will get the prize in the end. Nothing happens overnight. It isn’t easy. If it was easy, everyone would do it. This is what separates you from everyone else. 99% of people strive┬áto be average. If you are working towards a goal, any goal, you are already ahead of them. With every day you keep working, you are one day closer to the win. One step closer to scoring. The day you stop, you die, for your life ends the day you stop working towards improvement. Nobody is perfect. No one ever will be. But so long as you keep going, like a dynamo in the winter, you create the energy that fuels life, and bring light to the world. Remember, No Zero Days.

We all have those days when we are certain we are at maximum capacity. When we cannot possibly take anything on top of what is already going on in our lives. Those are the days when you need to step up and give it all you’ve got. The wheels don’t take days off. You will get more on your plate no matter how hard you try not to. Instead of running from it, go with it. Make a plan. Coordinate you day in such a way that you can pull it of. We are all capable of far more than we allow ourselves to believe. We can do it. One just has to trust in themselves. No Zero Days. One step at a time, anything is possible. You just have to take that one single step, every single day.

The first step to improvement is the recognition of who what to improve. You cannot fix a problem you refuse to admit exists. It is no shame to have shortcomings, everyone has them. They are different for each person, but they are there. Each and every one of us has something they can work on. Be it the inch of belly fat, or 2.5 in chemistry, it’s there. And it wont go away on its own. However, if you stop running from them, if you admit and embrace them as your own, you can overcome them. As long as you deny their existence, they will forever haunt you. Take a step, admit the shortcoming and work towards improving them. Every day will be far more fulfilling when you are busy with improvement as opposed to sulking in stagnation. No Zero Days. Take one step towards the solution right now. Take one step tomorrow. Every step you take is one step closer to accomplishment.

So often we walk side by side,
Wondering what the other has to hide,
Before we even dare to say a thing.
Every time you turn away,
Every word you had to say
I didn’t think the truth could sting.

Perhaps the world is giving you a clue,
But you close your ear and turn your head
Ignoring the message which is given to you
Seems you would rather stay in bed.

This pattern of behavior won’t get you far
that isn’t the way things are done around here,
So roll out of bed, and get in your car
Go for your dreams, get yourself there.

No more zero days! this you must yell
to all that you see from here to the end
But never forget a thank you to tell
the support around you, your every friend.

It is he who stood by you,
when the world seemed too dark
It was he who told you
Get up light the spark

He tells you today to go out
No Zero Days, get it all done,
Don’t worry, you got this, dont pout.
Soon you’ll look back and see it was fun.

Poetry, prose, and introspection,
Now I’ve got a new direction
Tearing me apart.
Working, thinking, motivation,
Here it comes, my new creation,
Straight from the heart.

You think its over,
You think theres no where left to go,
You think I’m dreaming,
You think its never gonna flow.

I’m gonna show you,
I’m gonna take it to the top
I’m gonna pass you,
And I’m never gonna stop!

Running, fighting, motivation,
Here I’ve got a new salvation
There’s gonna be a mess
Bleeding, sweating, transformation
Don’t forget the animation,
Breaking through the stress!

You think its over,
You think theres no where left to go,
You think I’m dreaming,
You think its never gonna flow.

I’m gonna show you,
I’m gonna take it to the top
I’m gonna pass you,
And I’m never gonna stop!
