Criticism

Criticism is defined as a critical observation or remark.

While criticism can often be an indispensable source in helping us grow, it can never take the place of having the courage to stand in the arena. Many are quick to tell us where we have gone wrong but stand on the sidelines, afraid to get their hands dirty. It is the doer of deeds who counts in the battle for life, not the man who looks on and says how the fight ought to be fought, without himself be willing to share in the stress and the danger.”

Tell Me Again

Tell me again,

You didn’t believe in me?

Didn’t think I had it in me?

Never believed I would succeed?

That’s funny.

I mean, couldn’t you see that I am unique?

That my spirit is indomitable.

That I have an unwavering belief in myself.

That greatness was always a part of me?

Were you jealous because the moment you saw me, you knew I didn’t walk, I didn’t run, and I would never get caught in the rain because I soared above the clouds?

Didn’t you see you could never take my happiness from me?

That your opinion of me never mattered.

Every step I take confirms who I am.

I waste not one day.

I am not a passenger of destiny.

I take hold of my future, motivated to be better tomorrow than I am today.

I have never regretted taking a chance.

Because my failures do not define

me, instead, I am respected for my resolve because failure did not break me.

I embrace the journey and keep moving forward.

My dreams do not end when I wake; they begin.

So tell me again, you didn’t believe in me?

Funny.
