Going to Be


Every time I fail – I get stronger

Every time I lose – My desire grows

Every time I feel pain – I work harder

Every time I slack – I pull the rope tighter

Every time something bad happens – I look for a lesson

Im going to be so good they can’t ignore me

For every unreturned call

Every ignored text

For every time you forget about me

For all those times you don’t see how bad it hurts

Those pieces of my heart I put out there – only to see them unappreciated and thrashed

For all those times…I use the pain…as my motivation

To be so good

You wont be able to

    This post has got to be the single-most inspirational thing I’ve ever read in my life. I am a CONSTANT work in progress. I strive to be the best person I can be and I try to improve myself in all facets of my life. Every. Single. Day. If the following doesn’t motivate you in some way, then I don’t know what will. MAJOR thank you to “The Better Man Project” for this unbelievably inspirational post.

    This post is so beautifully written, almost speaks the thoughts I have had on my mind for the past few months! Its nice to read it and feel assured of the positivity. In some ways it does remind me of Muhammad Ali’s How Great I Am speech.
