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¬†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!

(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.

 

Every Step

Every step you take
Is one step closer to the prize
Dont try to fake,
Keep walking till you die

Success is within reach,
You just have to keep moving
I don’t need to preach,
The winner is already grooving.

Don’t think about the past,
It’s over, gone forever
Today’s your chance to last,
Lets get it on, together.

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?

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!
