The Man in The Glass

When you get what you want in your struggle for life

And the world makes you king for a day

Just go to the mirror and look at yourself

And see what that man has to say

For it isn’t your father or mother or wife

Whose judgment upon you pass

The fellow whose verdict counts most in life

Is the man staring back from the glass

Some people might think you’re a straight shootin chum

And call you a wonderful guy

But the man in the glass says you’re only a bum

If you can’t look him straight in the eye

He’s the fellow to please, never mind all the rest

For he’s with you clear to the end

And you’ve passed your most dangerous test

If the guy in the glass is your friend

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years

And get pats on the back as you pass

But your final reward will be heartache and tears

If you’ve cheated the man in the glass



Inspiration for Success

If you think you are beaten, you are,

If you think you dare not, you don’t.

If you like to win, but you think you can’t,

It is almost certain you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.

For out in the world we find,

Success begins with a fellow’s will……

It’s All in the State of Mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are.

You’ve got to think High to rise.

You’ve got to be sure of yourself before

You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go

To the stronger of faster man

But soon or late the man who wins

Is the man who thinks he can.

Henry Wintle



There are not enough definitions of what a Winner is.

We get so wrapped up in the typical ones that the more subtle ones go unnoticed.

It is not always the person that gets the focus, the attention, or the accolades. It may take a little thought to see them, but they are right there, all around us, competing every single day, maybe even every single minute. We may not see what they are competing against, but they do.

And these amazing people, these Winners, focus on these challenges and they smash them out of their way. They do things that we should be in awe of, but we never pay attention.

And the most amazing thing is that they do not care what we think. They do not care if we notice. They do not care if they are ever recognized for what they do. Because they have transcended our narrow definition of a Winner and created their own.

And that is what a Winner really is.
