Accomplishment achievement doing great

Never stop at a locked gate

Push on through climb steep steps

Have resolve blame no one else


Understand mission vision

Know outcome desired without indecision

Develop mindset climb big hills

No stopping confronted by cold and chills


Dig deeper call on reserves

Finding edges of ignited nerves

At the outset all talk and chatter

Learn if that talk matters


Thwarted by one of your quests

Give up or engage your best

No is a signal more is demanded

No folding cards leaving empty-handed


Now the moment on this rock in space

Will persistence reveal your grace

Anything worthy of thoughts supreme

Deserves all make real your dream


Have you thought about resilience and grit?

When knocked down what enabled choosing

to get back up? Do you go for it?
