Do something really amazing
As Christmas approaches it's time to start thinking
About New Year and especially New Year resolutions.
There are two particular paths worthy of consideration.
1: You can let life happen to you, or 2: You can make
Life happen. In the former you just sit around hoping
And praying something good will come your way, whilst
In the latter, you get off your backside and do something
And by 'something really amazing' I mean crossing a
Threshold never crossed before. Breaking boundaries.
Winning races, righting wrongs. Helping to make
Earth a better place for all. The world is short of
Really new ideas and thus the door is open to anyone
And everyone possessed of imagination and willing to
Play their part in giving the world a happy New Year
Instead of the brewery. Exciting notions are needed
That may potentially relieve the pressure on this
Delicately balanced exhausted place we call home,
And if you have a Eureka moment, you may be on
On your way to becoming a millionaire. Don’t laugh,
People have done as much and more in other directions
From their garden shed or garage.
Up-grade your potential, beef-up your thinking, don't
Take no for an answer, oaks grow from acorns, if you
Want a job keep knocking until the door opens. Keep
Trying, never give up, never give in. Stop looking back,
Focus on the future, think Big. The world desperately
Needs original ideas. New ways of looking at old
Problems that haven’t gone away and won’t go away
Unless we solve them and soon and if you have a stroke
Of genius and anyone can have one - you're on your way.
