“A Psalm of Life” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Tell me not in mournful numbers,
“Life is but an empty dream!”
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.
Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
“Dust thou art, to dust returnest,”
Was not spoken of the soul.
Not enjoyment, and not sorrow,
Is our destined end or way;
But to act, that each to-morrow
Find us further than to-day.
Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave.
In the world’s broad field of battle,
In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle!
Be a hero in the strife!
Trust no Future, howe’er pleasant!
Let the dead Past bury its dead!
Act – act in the living present!
Heart within, and God o’erhead!
Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time;
Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o’er life’s solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.
Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labour and to wait.
What a great poem!
Hope to see you at the top!
P.S. money can sometimes be the best gift!
P.P.S why traditional MLMers are failing in their businesses
P.P.P.S. you can tell the measure of a person’s character by the way they treat you when you can do nothing for them.
No wonder people are desperate. Why? Because they’re looking to find themselves through things before finding themselves internally, personally, individually first. I would know because that’s me growing up in this materialistic world wanting everything I think I should have because I don’t have it.
Failures you learn from are good. I’ve learned through my failures and can be a beacon of help for those who are crawling through the muck and mire of opportunity this and opportunity that, program/system this or that. There’s so much out there – how do you choose.
Well, start from what you pleases your ideals, values not how much money you can make because believe me that will come later if you’re patient. Plus you need to look at the fact that if you lost Everything, what would you still have – what would you still be? A money-chaser, a manager, a salesperson, a scientist, a police officer, a CEO of the company(supermom), a FBI agent, and the list goes on.
Do what makes you happy is what I passed on to the kids. It’s not the goal in life to be rich or wealthy, but to become blessedly happy. Finding your center, your purpose, your direction will lead to the other material things that money and striving can buy. But, if you can’t find You, money, relationships, and things may come but they will not last because your foundation is off; it’s not solid – and you will still be unhappy.
So what are you offering Nabih? Something you can use to keep yourself financially prosperous while you find yourself or in some people’s cases continue to Re-define yourself; they are already prosperous and are just looking for something without all the hassles of generating money the old-fashion way.
Behold! Becoming successful at building a huge organization in MLM the non-traditional way through the Internet is what I’m getting into. So, if you want to know what I’m up to give me a holler – firstname.lastname@example.org
More to come, ciao
