Not Your Victim (a Haiku)

Racism.  Don’t stop. 
Inequality. Won’t quit.
I intend to win.    

Success and Failure

Don’t confuse haven’t succeeded yet with failure.

Haven’t succeeded yet means you’re working towards your goals. Maybe it hasn’t gone your way, maybe you’ve experienced a set back or two or three or xxx, or maybe you’re in the middle of a rough spot and starting to doubt yourself. This is where you embrace God, ignore the whispers of the devil, and push forward.

Failure means you’ve quit trying and conceded that your skill, your will, and your God aren’t enough. Failure simply means you lack the mental fortitude to succeed. Failure is a mental condition, because if you’re still breathing then your reality is you haven’t succeeded yet. Unless of course you’ve quit, in which case you’ve failed.



The world would be a more beautiful place if people possessed the fortitude to face the ugliness of who we are instead of the cowardice to act as if that ugliness does not exist. Ignoring it doesn’t make “it” less ugly, it makes “you” more ugly.
