"It's tempting to sit and wait for life to come to you. But it can't, it's too busy. Life is out there. You have to go for it."
~Harry Beckwith


 

There once was a young man of seventeen

Who had set no goals to a future that could be seen
“The future will take care of itself,” he stated
But that attitude proved itself to be ill-fated
He had no ambitions to pursue or realize
His attitude was to just sit back see what materialized
But one day he came to the realization that life had passed him by
So many opportunities were missed and now he wondered why
The young man was no longer young and had fulfilled no ambitions
For now he found that there were no ambitions
And thus his life had been lived empty and pointless
A life wasted is a life proved to be worthless
