I guess you just fell; Well not too bad; Get up and try again. How about that?

There is a particular song I play in my car "a lot" when driving, and sometimes I could play the song over and over again. Inasmuch as it could get on some people's nerves, mostly my kids, I just can't help but put it on repeatedly. It was one of the official songs of the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Gloria Estefan's "Reach" always seem to put me in a frame of mind of wanting to do something or making something happen that would ordinarily seem like an ordeal to me.

I have listened to the song for years and it still seems to work the same magic on me all the time. It inspires me. You could have a dream that looks like it could take almost a lifetime to achieve but as long as you don't give up, you can make it possible.

Like most people, I work very hard towards achieving success. I put in a lot of efforts into achieving a purpose. I would usually ask myself anytime I'm doing a task or working on a project "Have I tried my best?" "Have I been able to put in all the effort that I can muster?" "I'm I reaching for the sky?"

As much as I would expect success at the end which gives me a sense of fulfillment, It is always a different ball game when roadblocks or impediments are met along the way.
