Nothing will hold me back

Do you know my problem?
Only time!
Yes, only time
Can stop me;
Nothing will hold me back;
Only time can knock me out;
Otherwise, nothing else;
Time has that capability
Of stopping me;
But if time doesn’t stop me,
I will make it;
And make it big;
It’s no easy task;
That I know;
And know very well;
But I like it;
I really don’t like it easy;
Easy tasks don’t challenge;
How can you wake up
From slumber?
How can you get up
The sleeping giant inside you?
Through challenges;
I love them!
They are cute;
I always do all to rise
To my challenges.
If time is on my side,
I know what I will do.
I am taking on tough plans;
Daunting challenges,
And will see them through.
You don’t shy away
From the tough moments;
Rough roads are often great.

Winners are stickers

Wimners are stickers;
I love such people,
Who never give up;
I admire them
Because they can stick;
They can persist;
They are the winners;
They know it is
What it takes to win;
When the going is tough,
As winners, they show
How tough they are;
They are resilient;
They hold tight;
They aren’t quitters;
And what is great,
Soon, the tough times are over.
And great days come.
Winners are stickers.

Be tough

You have to be tough;
I encourage you
To be tough;
Things are not easy;
Things have not been easy;
Things will not be easy;
Things are tough;
And will be tougher.
And what do you do
When things are tough?
You have to be tough also;
You have to be tough
To meet tough times;
Unless you are tough,
You will be swept off
Your feet.
Therefore, be tough;
Be very tough;
Be very, very tough;
Be as tough as a lion;
Strong and courageous.

Ready determined resolved

What a day I find so tough!
The path to travel so rough;
Potholes here and there;
My heart beats with fear
As I toil to make it work;
Yet, I crow like a cock;
Of one thing, I am happy;
Hence I jump like a puppy;
How right now I feel,
I feel as strong as steel;
Also, in my heart I am brave;
Enough courage I have;
The odds, I am ready to face;
Determined to run the race;
Big, I am resolved to make it
Whatever challenges I hit;
Nothing will put me down;
Elsewhere or in this town;
Here and now I take a vow;
No stumbling-block will I allow
To stand on my way
Or to destroy my day;
I will turn it into a backbone;
And will call it a stepping-stone;
Whatever the odds, I will ensure
I make my success sure.

How tough are you?

How tough are you?
You have to be tough;
There’s a time to be soft,
And a time to be tough;
We live in a tough world;
We must be tough to survive;
Tough times, tough people;
Tough problems, tough solutions;
Tough questions; tough answers;
Therefore, be tough!
Unless you’re tough,
You’ll be swept off your feet;
Or simply swallowed by the world.

#encouragement, #inspiration, #tough

Forget about size.

It is not the size of medication
That matters;
It is its quality.
It is not your size that matters.
It is the stuff with which you are made.
A tough person is a tough person
Of their size.
Forget about your size and toughen
If you are small and tough,
Others will respect you.
If you are huge but a vegetable,
Others will eat you up.

Of what stuff are you?

Are you made of weak stuff
Or tough stuff?
Are you of stuff that gives up
Or stuff that hangs on to the end?
Shall you give up and never reach
The winning point?
Or hold tight till you win?
If you’re made of weak stuff,
You’ll give up;
If you’re made of tough stuff,
You’ll hang on
Till you reach the winning point;
You decide!
Of what stuff are you?

The toughest journey

Which is your toughest journey?
My toughest journey, I am on;
My journey on the web;
Moving from where I am to where
I want to be;
This is a journey many people
Want to make;
In this android generation age;
To move from where they are
To reach thousands and why
Not millions of readers;
I can assure you,
It is a tough journey indeed;
There are billions of people
In the world,
And a good many of them hooked
To the web everyday;
But to get to just one hundred
Of them is a tough journey;
Especially if you are not android;
But for all I know it can be done.
Some are getting to millions
Of readers everyday;
It can be done;it is being done;
If it can be done;and being done,
You can do it.
Do not stop until you have done it.
