Be Your Best
If you can’t be a sun, be a star.
If you can’t be a mountain, be a hill.
If you can’t be a tree, be a bush.
But be the best you can.
For the greatest tragedy in life is not failure to be number one.
No, the greatest tragedy in life is to come face to face with the fact that you did not do your very best.
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high-
And when you want to smile, but you have to sigh-
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t quit!
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow-
You may succeed with another blow!
Success is failure turned inside out-
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are-
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you are hardest hit…
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit!
