Success and the successful

How do paupers rise to fame, attain such glory and make a name?

How do failures rise again, muster the courage and face the pain?

There is nothing to it, no trick you see, they are humans like you and me

All that differs is a will profound to knock on heaven and hear the sound.

Yet success often escapes from our clasp, what is it that we fail to grasp?

Is there more to success than we can see, is there a way we too can be?

 

How do paupers rise to fame, attain such glory and make a name?

How do they so often change the game, command a fortune yet seem so tame?

There must be more, I’m sure of it, something more than just pure grit

All we need is another endeavour to know what it takes to be the greatest ever

In that, we must revisit our concepts; of success, of glory and commendable conquests

For having the right direction to start, is a battle won, for the most part.

 

How do paupers rise to fame, attain such glory and make a name?

How do they go where none have gone, plan so well and become a king from a pawn?

The answer lies in the question they ask, what is success in this task?

The reply becomes their guiding light, and the will to not give up without a fight

Many people start you see, but without a goal, they’re simply lost at sea.

Success differs from being to being, this simple truth is rather freeing

And that my friends, is how they do it, they know their goal and then pursue it.
