How I wish there are elevators…
However, according to Joe Girard, ‘The elevator to success is out of order. You'll have to use the stairs... one step at a time.’ Hmmm.. and reaching the top requires patience, hard work, discipline and positive attitude. It reminds me of the poem written by Walter D. Wintle.
If you think you're beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win, but think you can't,
It's almost a cinch, you won't.
If you think you're losing, you've lost.
For out in the world we find -
Success being with a fellow's will,
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think you're outclassed, you are,
You've got to think high to rise.
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go,
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.
