How do you catapult yourself?

Can you be catapulted to prominence?
How do you catapult yourself?
If you are waiting to be catapulted to success,
Who will ever do such a thing?
Waiting to be catapulted into the limelight
Is to wait in vain;
Greatness does not come by sudden leaps;
Greatness comes in single steps;
For sure that exceptions exist;
Else, it’s step by step that you find your way
To the top of the mountain;
Wait for no one to catapult you to stardom;
For sure, championship is at your reach;
But you must catapult yourself to it;
And you must do so step by step.
