Play Better Than The Day Before


Down this road I walk
Words danced in my mind
'My destiny In my hands'
I felt the need to know the meaning of the words
Clearly recognized the words as life_changing
Felt strength in the very core of my being
A strength I never had
Strangely a powerful force was starting to transform me
Success or failure is the very definition
Of everyday actions
The price of success
Is working towards the goals set
The power to succeed
Or fail was my alone
The bigger the better
The ultimate goal in life is to get better
And better each day
Dreamt of bigger and better things
Desired to be better than myself
Life is exactly what you make of it
Mine would be great

Had my mind set on focusing what i can do for the world
Not what I can take from the world
Believing
Dedication
Determination
Are powerful forces that strongly boosted my self_image
I felt the urge to prove to myself I can
Yes I surely can


My brains didn't seem to turn any corners
Fixing my understanding
I wisely realized
The fear of failure make success impossible
Desire for success should be greater
Than the fear of losing
And the next phase
Drove me to identify the biggest problem area of my life
Recharging my mind
And body with positive ideas
I played better than the day before
Stretching out my capabilities
In developing my skills and talents
I was satisfied with the present
Hard work was my only way to positive outcome
Life is hard to beat a person who never gives up
Success is something that come and go
Whether I win or lose
I had faith in life
I had faith in me
The courage and hope in me
Gave me the desire to continue through any struggle
At the end of the day
I played better than the day before

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
