Posts Tagged ‘How to Success

Keeping the luster by mid-age

Mindlessly a Genius 

1.   We hear a lot about self-made Billionaires; we read of them, sometimes.

There are not many of them.  Some are in their early youth;

Most in their much delayed youth.

 

We hear a lot less about geniuses; we read of them, never.

There are so many of them.  A few stay in the race.

Most show signs early on, a handful keep the luster by mid-age.

 

2.   Millions of people are happy preaching,

To anyone who cares to listen,

The motto: “Think smart, work smart.”

He is happy talking, day-dreaming, the normal man.

 

3.   If the living billionaires and geniuses

Would dare to tell the “How to Success”.

If the living could remember, what really happened,

In their journeys to success.

 

4.   You read biographies of the famous and glamorous.

Too much hooplas, too much redundancies.

Humbug.

They work hard, mindlessly hard.

Hard working for many years, consistently.

Constancy.

They did not work to survive.  They worked with excitement.

They worked with zeal.

The more they worked, the smarter they got.

They never dwelled on how far smarter they came to be.

 

5.   Friend, you may hate me for what I’m saying.

My conscience is clear:  I never abused of your time,

Never robbed you of money

Pleasing your day dreaming wishes

Of quick success on little work in a short time.

 

6.   Stop thinking how to work smart:  Just get on it.

Mindlessly loving your work, serving man’s dreams.
