Making Sense of the Quest for Success

At the core of any quest
We discover a virtue called diligence
That quality so many greats confess
Has much to do with their success

So at the centre of self-interest should be self-development
That way our enrichment will not come at anyone’s expense
In fact, when we serve others by being our best
We earn their respect without a need to exert our influence

And yet, some still say at the mercy of favour you’ll find the fortunate
Those who pick the prospects and direct the work
But if one understands that nature is indiscriminate
And that what you think you manifest
All of a sudden one realises that the biggest impediment to progress is ultimately the mindset

Now turn your thought energy into the potent force which creates outcomes that elevate
And when setbacks beset – do not disintegrate
Instead, remember the old adage: what you give you get

And find your strength to find your worth
Because only from a challenge can ingenuity be birthed
Like the force created when an atom is split
Forming a much more potent energy than its material state
