What's the Secret of Success?

"Takes pain," said the window.
"Keep cool," said the ice.
"Drive hard," said the hammer.
"Be up to date," said the calender.
"Never be led," said the pencil.
"Be sharp," said the knife.
"Make light around you," said the fire.
"Stick to it," said the glue.
"Be bright," said the lamp.

Comfort Zone

I use to have a Comfort Zone
Where I knew I couldn't fail
The same four walls of busy work
Were really more like jail.


I longed so much to do the things
I'd never done before,
But I stayed inside my Comfort Zone
And paced the same old floor


I said it didn't matter,
That I wasn't doing much
I said I didn't care for things
Like diamonds, furs and such


I claimed to be so busy
With the things inside my zone,
But deep inside I longed for
Something special of my own.


I couldn't let my life go by,
Just watching others win.
I held my breath and stepped outside
And let the change begin.


I took a step and with new strength
I'd never felt before,
I kissed my Comfort Zone "goodbye"
And closed and locked the door.


If you are in a Comfort Zone,
Afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were
At one time filled with doubt.


A step or two and words of praise,
Can make your dreams come true.
Greet your future with a smile,
Success is there for you!
