Motivated Monday! – Playing the Game

It’s Monday again! Let’s start the week off right with this poem from an unknown author about the game of life. This poem in particular talks about daring greatly and doing more than just talking, we have to start doing.

Remember to write down your goals for this week today. It is amazing how much more you can get done with written goals! Make your game plan and then get in the game!


Playing The Game Author Unknown

Life is a game with a glorious prize, If we can only play it right.

It is give and take, build and break, And often it ends in a fight;

But he surely wins who honestly tries (Regardless of wealth or fame),

He can never despair who plays it fair How are you playing the game?

Do you wilt and whine, if you fail to win In the manner you think your due?

Do you sneer at the man in case that he can And does, do better than you?

Do you take your rebuffs with a knowing grin? Do you laugh tho’ you pull up lame?

Does your faith hold true when the whole world’s blue? How are you playing the game?

Get into the thick of it – wade in, boys! Whatever your cherished goal;

Brace up your will till your pulses thrill, And you dare – to your very soul!

Do something more than make a noise; Let your purpose leap into flame

As you plunge with a cry, “I shall do or die,” Then you will be playing the game.
