Achieve!

Keep your thoughts pure and clear
Keep your hearts open and kind
Keep your purpose focussed and bright
Keep your life on track;defined

And be the best you can be
Be a beacon for the rest
Be accountable; be virtuous
And above all be honest

For chances come and chances go
In this world where we exist
But stay on the straight and narrow
And temptation you’ll resist

To let your light shine brightly
To let you be on the qui vive
To let you make the most of everything
To live fully and achieve

 

Just Do It! (The Can Do Way)

  

Life’s Mountains

I stood and saw a mountain
It loomed ahead so tall
Blocking the way, or so it seemed
Just like a huge brick wall

It soared right up into the clouds
So steep; so very high
A massive mountain in the mist
That stood against the sky

Ahead a single track of sorts
Uneven and quite rough
Covered in rocks and scree and stones
That said ‘Give Up – it’s tough’

Yet somewhere in the distance
A small ray of light shone through
That lured me to just carry on
To head towards the blue

So small it seemed insignificant
Yet with magnetic might
It pulled me; drew me onwards til
The end came into sight

A magnet that we might call ‘will’
The will to win; succeed
That failed to let me quit or stop
As will became a need

And need became persistence
Determined to achieve
To battle on and reach the top
Inspired to just believe

Believe that any mountain that
We face will fade away
When mind and body join as one
To win through day on day

  

The Truth About Some Days (Haiku)

Some days are prepared
Some days just simply happen
Some days never start

Keyholes To Potential

A world made of keyholes
Where you are the keys
Each one very different
Each matched uniquely
To your wishes and dreams
To your hopes and desires
To your goals and ambitions
All those things that inspire
You to pass your own limit
Extend your sights too
So unlock your potential
And release the true you

The Recipe For Achievement

With a dash of stickability
A pinch of true resolve
And dose of determination
A mind set will evolve
To grow the muscle daily
That perseveres and beats
Those things that test and challenge us
That seem the biggest feat

So mix them all together
Add a drop of hell-bent might
Stir in a spoon of ‘not give up’
Until the end’s in sight
So that despite the toughest ride
The work be worthwhile
Cos no-one promised easy
In life’s mix to cross the miles

Then bake it in the oven
At a heat that just seems best
Enough to cook and bake the beast
Yet not too much to test
It’s own endurance limits
For sometimes more is less
In getting equilibrium
To win without the stress!

And finally when done spot on
Remove and see just what
Has been effected; followed through
And know that with a lot
Of focussed dedication
This is what you have done
Be proud of your accomplishment
For you’ve achieved and won!

Spuds R U!

If a spud, a mere potato
Can become so many things
Like crisps, french fries and vodka
Then you too can spread your wings
And aspire to be the person
You dream of day by day
With a little inspiration
To go a long long way

So set your mind right to it
From wherever you may be
For think that from a field of mud
Potatoes found glory!
And thus from modest beginnings
With the will to change and grow
Be true to your potential and
Reap from the seeds you sow!

Spit, Grit And Duct Tape

Spit, grit and duct tape
The way things ought to be
Making the most of everything
All opportunity
To turn around and to make good
Recycle and restore
To put new life into the old
And openly explore
The endless possibilities
To use the gifts we’ve got
To make the most of what we have
And tie a little knot
Remembering that with hard work
A lot will be achieved
By focussing with purposed might
So go on! Just believe!
That you’ve already got the tools
You need! The kit for sure
To fix up, handle, manage and
Then open chosen doors!

Give Your Children Just Enough

Give your children just enough
To go and make some good
But not enough that then they fail
Nor see the tree or wood
Give them a start and help them to
Appreciate this Earth
To own their own pathways ahead
Not just by right of birth

And let them harness steadfastness
Inspired to do much more
To take the little that they have
And rise on footholds sure
With knowledge that they can succeed
Be who they want to be
And open up the way ahead;
Take opportunity

To know that by their own attempts
Their focus and their might
They’ll take the little that you give
And with hard work in sight
They’ll master their autonomy
Be true to who they are
And journey whilst holding on fast
So that they will go far

Be Who You Will Be

When standing on the mountain top
Observe the stunning view
Imbue the scene that jumps for joy
And hops around in you

The sense that you’re invincible
The outlook that inspires
The sentiment that all is great
That blossoms like wild fires

The feeling that spreads right throughout
The mind so rampantly
Behold the vista and just know
That power so pleasingly

For all the world’s your oyster that
Enables you for free
To take the gauntlet and achieve
And be who you will be
