How do you view your place in the world
Are you the director or are you controlled
Do you let things happen or steer the car
Are you happy to be the person you are?
Do you feel you have grown as each year goes by
Have you realised your dreams or watched them subside
Are you passionate about the things that you do
Does enthusiasm ooze from you?
When was the last time you set a goal
Then went in search of your pot of gold
How did it feel along the way
To strive for ambition day by day?
We are what we think, so think yourself great
Be the best person that you can create
What is the legacy you’d like to leave
What is the purpose that you must achieve?
We all have a choice to lead or be led
Dictated by what’s going on in our head
When we decide what we want from life
New doors will open, look for the signs
The people, the places, the tools are at hand
To carve the life that we demand
So chisel away at whatever it is
Life is a present, unwrap your gift.
