The audacity to dare

Dear leader of tomorrow,
Dear young one,
I admire the leadership qualities
I find in you;
If you are here
And reading this,
It is because you have
Leadership qualities
Worth admiration;
At your little corner
Where you are,
You can
Make a difference;
If possible,
Go ahead and do it;
Make a big difference;
You have what it takes
To make a difference;
You were not born
For ordinary things;
You have extraordinary qualities;
Multiple talents;
Use them
To make your mark;
It is necessary
That you leave a mark;
Leave your footprints
In the sand of time;
It’s a real possibility
For you.
I see it coming
If you have the audacity
To dare.
Do you?
I want you to excel.

My footprints

If you want
To pass here unnoticed,
Like a thief slipping in
Through a side door,
You are free to do so;
You make your choice;
You do as you like;
As for me,
I won’t go that way;
That is not my destiny;
It’s the wrong road for me.
To go unnoticed
Is not like me;
To throw myself in mud?
And get my body soiled?
I refuse with all my energy;
I will stamp my feet
On the ground;
And make the world
Know I am there;
I will rock the boat;
And make a loud noise.
Why should I tiptoe,
When I can leave
My foot prints in bold,
On the dust of time.
I am not a lamb;
I am a lion;
I will roar,
Be it in the valley
Or the hill.
I will play my role.

Yes, you can

Yes, you can, be forever
Remembered;
And always remembered;
Remembered for all times;
As the great ones are remembered;
The very great ones;
They have impacted the world;
Left their footprints
On the sand of times;
Selflessly served their people;
Their words touched and continue
To touch many hearts;
And on them printed;
They were and they are loved;
Admired, and praised
All for their work.
Oh! Great souls!
Truly, can you be like them?
Yes, you can;
And even more, why not?

The following quotes can inspire you to go for greatness and get it:

“No man is truly great who is great only in his lifetime. The test of greatness is the page of history.” William Hazlitt.

“The heights by great men reached and kept,
Were not attained by sudden flight,
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

The night is dark

Inspire someone;
Let others find reason
To follow your footsteps;
Be their role-model;
Let someone find it worthy
To follow where you go;
The night is dark;
Light is hard to come by;
Be the light;
Be a lamp;
Be a candle;
That provides the light;
That is needed to light up the way;
Let others find reason
To follow your footprints.

Follow his footsteps

He came;
That you and I may be saved;
Some believe;
Others do not.
Believe!
And if you don’t believe;
The choice is yours.
Believe!
And do not lip service;
Always bear in mind,
He carved out a path for you and I;
He printed his footprints strongly on the ground;
All we need is follow his footsteps;
And we are saved;
He asks not more than this;
Shall you
Step on his footprints;
And follow his footsteps.

Stop tiptoeing through life

There are two ways of going about in this world. You tiptoe through life or you bounce and stamp your feet on the ground. Which do you opt for?

If you tiptoe through life, you may get to the end of your days without being bruised; but you might live the life of a beggar.

If you bounce and stamp your feet on the ground, you may bomb into people or hit and shatter your head on a rock; but there is also a chance you will live a full, complete life, realizing your wildest dreams.

A wise man once asked, “Do you want to live safely and in oblivion or to take a chance and be great?”

Robert Kennedy put it so aptly: “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”

To achieve anything worthwhile in this world, learn to take risks. As an old adage says, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.”

Make your footprints last on the sand of time’ by refusing to tiptoe through life. Take a risk; take a leap in faith; stamp your feet on the ground.
