You Can Make Things Happen

You will eventually fail.

You will grow tired trying.
You will make mistakes along the way.
You will disappoint people.
You won’t be able to please everyone.
You are going to doubt yourself.
You are going to want to give up.

But hold up, it’s all just a set up.
A set up that will lead you to a much stronger you.
To a you who will succeed;
To a you who will always find strength to work best;
To a you who are going to impress people;
To a you who will inspire thousands;
To a you who will believe more in what you can do;
To a you who are going to make things happen.

See, it’s going to get worse before it all gets better. You just have to trust the process and keep your grip tighter.

Brace yourself, ’cause you’re about to soar higher.
