Life

Infinity-Time1Life doesn’t stop. It doesn’t care if you are lazy, active, intelligent, stupid. It goes on from birth to death. What you need to decide is how you spend that period between the endpoints. Every moment is a chance. An opportunity to do something great. Do not mourn the moments you’ve already missed. They are gone. You cannot recover them. Instead move forward and make the best of the moments coming at you every second of every day. Imagine what you could accomplish, if you stopped worrying, stopped being afraid, stopped rationalizing your inaction, but actually got up and acted. You only get one chance. Make the most of it. Get up, go forth and be awesome. No zero days.

http://images8.alphacoders.com/372/372048.jpgIn the mess that is our own existence,
One simple thing you should keep in mind.
No matter the strength of laziness’ persistence,
If you can’t keep up, you’ll be left behind.

With every move we make towards survival,
Of your own breath always think first
For if you spend time in thine own denial,
From the cup of glory you shall never quench your thirst.

If you will not stand proudly for thyself,
Alone, you shall take the journey,
For your existence in and of itself
Relies on taking a stance for one’s identity.

No one can take your place at the helm
Not even for a moment’s time
If you plan to rule the realm
Take charge, and make the climb.

You want to wait

You want to wait until forever
What if forever never comes
and all you waiting gets you nowhere
You can’t keep waiting for the perfect sunny day
all the chances might come together fade away
Just because you faltered, didn’t dare (more…)

So oft I hear the question asked:
Why does he have more than me?
Why do I live a beggar’s life
While he swims in luxury.

These questions swim around my world
And yet I keep moving on
I try my best to ignore the noise
And dance off to my own invented song

Thus while they all keep asking
The questions which they ask
I’ll be building my own beauty
And in the sunlight bask.

Rewards aren’t given for the asking.
One must invent them on their own
Hard work, sweat, tears, and dedication
Are the seeds from which success is sown.

While their questions keep them busy,
I sit and plot my victory
And one day looking back at this they claim
It was forever his destiny.

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.

There is little in life that is more important the keeping a positive and happy outlook and spreading the happiness to those around you. It doesn’t take much. Greet people with a smile. Remember their names. Remind them not only of how important they are to you but why they are important as well. Compliment the Batista who serves you your morning coffee, buy the drink for the person in line who looks like they need a pick-me-up. Share a happy tale with the people around you. The difference you will make may not be noticeable to you, but you may have just made someones day. Perhaps drastically changed someones life. All it Takes is a kind word and a smile. No Zero Days. Make every moment count.

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 to 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.

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.

When the sweet goes sour
Through the darkest hour
And the wind knocks at your door,
Gotta bring the heat,
Make the lemon sweet
Keep on going out for more!

Don’t let them tell you
You cannot do what you want to do,
You will never see it through,
That you shouldn’t dream so vast,
That you  will fail very fast

Dont let them tell you
That you are wrong in your beliefs
That your opinion causes grief
That you should give up while you can
That’s the way to win a fan

You must remember,
You are the one who makes your fate
let the haters spew their hate
While you climb up your own way
To the top, where you will stay.

Their words lose meaning
When they do not support your cause
Don’t let them stop you, do not pause
You must fight for what you dream
Keep on swimming against the stream

With your hard work and dedication,
You’ll be a star onto the nations,
A visionary in the dark
A lonely dreamer with the spark

You’ll rise up to higher things,
Only the victors get to sing
So keep on running to the top,
There’s no reason you should stop.

 

The clock is ticking,
Blood coursing through the veins,
Your wet shirt sticking,
That sweat is gonna stain.

The drums are pounding,
You can hear it in your head
The road is winding,
Pale face is flushing red.

The pain is throbbing,
It finds its way to you
Hell bent on robbing
Victory, but you push through

You can’t stop it now,
They think you’re insane
You never question how,
Just one thing remains:

What are you getting ready for?
