Do Not Go Gently

Do not go gentle into that goodnight,

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Do you burn?

Do you rave and rage?

Do you go gently home at the end of the day, or do you fight until the last minute, expending your strength on the field every day and leaving empty?

Are you mentally drained by the end of your daily trial, because you have been going since early o’clock and gave it your full effort over and over again, through failure and triumph and failure again?

“Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.” Og Mandino

“The vision of a champion is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion, when nobody else is looking.” Mia Hamm

If you lose the morning, do you battle until you have won the day before retiring to rest?

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

“Give up, give in, or give it your all.”  Charleston Parker

Burn your ships each morn, so you can only go home victorious.

Unleash your passion.

Attack each task with ferocious pride and burning desire to win.

Pour your soul into your work, from inception to completion.

Do not go gentle into that goodnight.

Rage, rage against the dying of the light!

    The power of these words, especially if they are heard fully, with action taken…. is a satisfying life with impact beyond your own journey.
