Motivation

What is yours?
Each and all of us must reach a point when we confront ourselves to find out exactly why we are doing what. Beyond 'income,' past 'advancement,' greater than '_____,' each of us must realize that the one greatest question above all this is
"IS IT THE RIGHT THING TO DO?"
Once that is settled, one can move forward with boldness and confidence!
I don't know about you, but this is a location I must go to daily.

There is an intensity
that goes beyond 'success.'
There is an effort that, when made,
takes quite a while to bless;
there is a labor that requires
work without a thought;
there is a classroom without doors
where life is surely taught!
There is a level of achievement
known to only one:
the heart alone to recognize
when the best is done.
Accolades are wonderful,
serving to inspire,
but I'm the only one that knows
if I have fed the fire!

Settle for no less than that
accomplishing the most,
even if it only means
that, to yourself, you boast!
Your every effort in this life
may, recognition, lack,
but God, Himself, on that Great Day
will pat you on the back!

"Well done, thou good and faithful servant."
