I just finished reading a post by Mrs.Tamara Inzunza Realtor -Alexandria,VA about your business plan which prompted me to review mine and see what I need to do to make it better. ( I track my business plan/goals every week ). Anyway,I was looking in my fast trac when I ran across this poem. It is by Edgar Guest. I really liked it. Sometimes things are not going our way and we need something to lift our spirits and motivate us. So I thought that I share this poem with you. I hope you all enjoy reading this.

 

                                                      

                                                      EQUIPMENT

                                      Figure it out for yourself,my lad

                                     You've all that the greatest men have had,

                                     Two arms,two hands, two legs, two legs.

                                     And a brain to use if you would be wise.

                                     With this equipment they all began,

                                     Do start from the top and say "I can".

                                     

                                     Look them over,the wise and the great,

                                     They take their food from a common plate,

                                     And similiar knives and forks they use,

                                     With similar laces they tie their shoes,

                                     The world considers them brave and smart,

                                     But you've all they had when they made their start.

 

                                     You can truimph and come to skill.

                                     You can be great if you only will.

                                     You're well equipped for what fight you choose,

                                     You have arms and legs and a brain to use,

                                     And the man who has risen great deeds to do,

                                     Began his life with no more than you.

 

                                    You are the handicap you must face,

                                    You are the one who must choose his place,

                                    You must say where you want to go,

                                    How much you will study, the truth to know,

                                    God has equipped you for life,but He.

                                    Lets you decide what you want to be.

                     

                                    Courage must come from the soul within,

                                    The man must furnish the will to win.

                                    So figure it out for yourself,my lad,

                                    You were born with all that the great have had.

                                    With your equipment they all began.

                                    Get Hold of yourself,and say: "I can."
