Handout #326: Next Time Around . . .; Goals

NEXT TIME AROUND …

How many men will battle on when the pressure to compromise is strong?

Who is left to make a stand on idealistic ground and keep the faith the next time around?

The price we pay for standards is severe, But some must hold out though the price is dear,

The loser is the winner when the inner strength is found to fight to his feet the next time around.

To those who are loyal here’s my hand. I will be there when you have to make your stand.

To those who weaken when the chips are down … I will pray for you the next time around.

********************************

GOALS

Whatever you goal may be, strike out for it. What if you die in the attempt?

If you put every shred of yourself into the attempt, you will have had life’s one great exhilarating and soul satisfying experience anyhow.

And when you start out to pursue your dreams, be prepared for a great discovery.

It is the effort itself that will give you peace. This peace goes with you as you grow older, becomes your choicest companion, never leaves you.

Wrestling this peace from a troubled world is about all there is to the secret of happiness. – Ralph Waldo Emerson.

********************************

CLIMB ‘TIL YOUR DREAM COMES TRUE

Often your tasks will be many, and more than you think you can do – Often the road will be rugged and the hills insurmountable, too – But always remember, the hills ahead are never as steep as they seem, And with faith in your heart start upward and climb ’till you reach your dream,

For nothing in life that is worthy is ever too hard to achieve. If you have the courage to try it and you have the faith to believe- For faith is a force that is greater than knowledge or power or skill, And many defeats turn to triumph if you trust in God’s wisdom and will- For faith is a mover of mountains, there’s nothing that God cannot do- So start out today with faith in your heart and “CLIMB ‘TIL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE!” – Helen Steiner Rice
