If you want a thing bad enough
To go out and fight for it,
Work day and night,
Give up your time and your peace and your sleep for it,
If only desire of it,
Makes you quite mad enough
Never to tire of it,
Makes you hold all other things tawdry and cheap for it,
If life seems all empty and useless without it
And all that you scheme and you dream is about it,
If gladly you’ll sweat for it,
Fret for it,
Plan for it,
Lose all your terror of God or man for it,
If you’ll simply go after that thing that you want,
With all your capacity,
Strength and sagacity,
Faith, hope and confidence, stern pertinacity,
If neither cold, poverty, famished and gaunt,
Nor sickness nor pain
Of body or brain
Can turn you away from the thing that you want,
If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,
You’ll get it! – Berton Braley

  1. Greetings brother Yomi, thanks for the follow on ImageBreakers. Your connection is valued. The question “How bad do you want it?” is something I will ask myself when facing every new decision… thanks for the insight.
