For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

It’s Couldn’t Be Done

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say no till he tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing and he tackled the thing
Thad couldn’t be done and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;
At least no one has ever done it”;
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.

With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing and he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you
But just buckle it in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go do it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thin
That “cannot be done" and you’ll do it.

By Edgar Guest.
Another poem in the Think and Grow Rich book. If you are interesting in learning the Secret - it's possible, but it's not as easy as you think. You have to integrate the thoughts into your being. You have to want to work hard and not be afraid.
