Success comes with effort; to win you must try.
This is one fact that no one can deny.
So when you make the effort, if you fall,
Just get right up, be bold; stand tall!
Success is not guaranteed; so don’t play around,
But failure is guaranteed if you stay down.
So get up quickly and dust yourself right off;
Don’t even give failure a second thought!
Believe in yourself and in your power to succeed.
When the talk is negative, just refuse to heed.
Be positive; reject failure. Tell yourself, “It’s not my cup!”
Victory will be yours if you always get up!
