Here is a secret
I have to tell
It’s about success
And how to do well

Wake up people
Listen to me
I’ve been there
And I did see

Every day 
That you start
With only half
Of your heart

Is a day 
That you waste
As you try
To make haste

Nothing’s ready
Or prepared
Not even coffee
And you are scared

Upon 4 wheels
You’re on your way
With this in mind
Another bad day

No time to stop
Onward you move
Before you know it
You find your groove

The time on your wrist
Is a quarter to 2
Butterflies flutter
Inside of you

What takes place soon
You’ve contemplated
It’s time to change
Too long you have waited

You didn’t know then
What you know now
And this you believe
You’ll do it somehow

To take a great leap
And turn a new leaf
Now that you found
Some self belief

A job is a job
Unless it’s for free
And then, only then
It’s just misery

No more unto others
To mess up your head
There’s only one you
Until you are dead

The factors that matter
Are often forgotten
Without them there
Life is just rotten

There’s more to life
Than what you acquire
It’s burning inside
Your true desire

It’s not what you have
Nor your address
So open your heart
And reassess 

All that you need
Is right at your door
Everything else
Is what’s in store

Forget what you hear
When you’re told that you can’t
“There’s always a way”
Should be your new chant

Taking a chance
Is better than none
It’s often better
When you have done

All that you can
And give it your best
The secret to life
Every day’s a success

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, a prolific writer sharing my words. In sharing I am caring. I am a member of the human race with an appetite to motivate, inspire, empower and provoke thinking. I stand for dignity in humanity. I am compelled to a vision that we are all here for a reason, life is like a deck of cards... “My cards. My deal. Life is learning the game!” #opism What is OPISM? I have come up with this term as my nick name is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctorine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism My Motto! “Dignity is Free” How I live...Embracing Dignity My professional experience is disbursed across industries from financial services and sales to that of personal and emergency care. As one who has trained and coached, mentored and taught; it has become a passion within to witness and feel joy in the achievement and success of others that I have been associated with. I am a lifelong learner and have created and facilitated various training materials. It is through such experience that I discovered the power of positive feedback in both professional and personal manners. I am self disciplined, accountable, determined, humble, loyal and adaptive; but above all I value my integrity! I am a decent human being. It is with my greatest pleasure to share with others the power of positive words.

One thought on “‼️THE SECRET OF SUCCESS‼️

  1. Very, very well said my friend. There’s nothing worse than being in a job or situation that one hates. Both can take a toll on both your physical and mental health.

    Thanks for the daily messages of inspiration and opism!

    You’re one of a kind as we say in the South!
