Keep trying till you know it,
Keep at it till you can show it.
~Life is a maze~
of which we should graze
learning to walk before we run
testing our abilities can be fun.
Keep going back again and again
even when it's hard to begin.
Keep searching, the answers will appear
the challenge is yours to overcome your fear.
Confused, bewildered not knowing which way to turn
don't stop until you have learned.
Never - ever quit for this is your fall,
it takes courage to keep carrying the ball.
Success in your venture
isn't that you never wilter;
but stepping over the rock
that has kept you blocked.
"Hold on with a bulldog grip...,"
remember...it's okay if you trip.

Very inspiring, Julie, not to mention motivational. Looks like it might be past time for me to crack open Ziglar again.
