Fight of Your Life – Post 398

Are you prepared to fight for your dream?

For years, I end my speeches with…

If you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it,
to work day and night for it,
to give up your time,

your peace and sleep for it…
If all that you dream and scheme is about it,
and life seems useless and worthless without it…

And if you gladly sweat for it and fret for it
and lose all your terror of the opposition for it…

If you simply go after that thing that you want with all your capacity,
strength and sagacity,
faith, hope, and confidence and stern pertinacity…

If neither cold,
famine, nor gout,
sickness nor pain, of body and brain,
can keep you away from the thing that you want…

If dogged and grim you beseech and beset it,
with the help of God, YOU WILL GET IT!
Be prepared to get hit, but hit back harder.
Stay the course. Victory is Yours!
Go Fight For Your Dream!
