What can make you shine?

Do you know what can make you shine?
Hard work can make you shine;
Passion can make you shine;
Dedication can make you shine;
Courage can make you shine;
Persistence can make you shine;
Faith can make you shine;
All the same, much, in this world,
Depends on who you know;
Much depends on who knows you;
Shining does not depend
On how brilliant you are;
Or how competent you may be;
Much depends on who knows you;
And who you know;
Much depends on
How many friends you have;
Though not all depends on them,
But much depends on them;
On the community behind you;
If you have many people behind you,
A lot will go well for you;
If you have nobody behind you,
Not much will go well for you;
I do really hope you get this;
Let your work shine, for sure;
But get also
The right people behind you;
Build a strong community behind you.
That is what will make you shine.
