TO BE SUCCESSFUL YOU NEED TO BE BRAVE ENOUGH TO SET OUT ON A JOURNEY IN WHICH MISTAKES AND DISAPPOINTMENTS ARE COMMON. IN THIS ROAD STRENGTH AND DETERMINATION ARE NECESSARY TO OVERCOME DIFFICULTIES AND REACH YOUR DREAMS.

In Latin exitus means ‘the effect or successful consequences of an action’.

Throughout history, society has established a relation between success, wealth and fame. This poor view of  reality affects  many people. Success is not fame or having a lot of money, it is the consequence of reaching a goal, of hard work and your dreams.

As its meaning asserts, you need to get out and search, fight and work for everything you want, start the race towards success always dedicated, constant and patient.

It is important to know that in the road to success bad days will come. You will begin to doubt yourself, thinking that you can’t achieve your goal, but you also need to know that the bad moments don’t come to stay, they are temporary so do not give up on your dreams.

The race to success is full of disappointments and defeats but they will make you stronger and your desire to reach your goal greater. Learn from your failures and they will not happen again.

The reach for success is a long and slow process, but quitting won’t speed it up.

BIRDS

I, Raven
sit high
in the grayness
of the pine

The sighs
of the wind
softly intersect
the valley

The waters reflect
the cycles of seasons
as the moon
rests gently
on the eastern hill

I hear
as if a part of me
the life of the dark

The dogs
speak of the day’s news
interrupted
only by the horned owl

Night subsides
into morn

I breathe
the whole of it
between the hills
