I am not smarter than you,
I am not faster than you,
And I am not stronger than you,
But I will beat you.
Because when the rest of the world is sleeping,
When the rest of the world is zoning out,
When the rest of the world is distracted,
I will remain focused.
We both fail but the difference is,
I will get back up,
I will learn from my fall,
And I will refuse to give up on my ideals.
Failure only comes because the bar is set high.
The acceptance of reality does not justify remaining stagnant within the realm of mediocrity.
