The written word: Your personal essays
Yes, You Can
Yes, You Can
To inspire the next generation and my inspiration, our youth.
You may have fallen behind, faltered. You may be down and counted out. Still you are not done yet, not even close. Gather yourself, trust your instincts, dust yourself off and then try again. Show us what you are made of. Do what it takes and rise now, and then rise again, as a true champion because yes you are and yes you can.
With all of your good self, with the person you are, with your brilliance, your will, your want, with your love for the right and the righteous and for your destiny and our future, you can turn things around as only you can, and yes you can.
Unleash your strengths and find your niche. Strive for and reach your true potential. Be the phenomenon you can and must become. Achieve and then overachieve, for your today and our tomorrow and yes you can.
With all your enthusiasm, your endurance, your heart and your soul, your optimism, your passion, reach out to love, care and make it better for yourself, for all of us. You know you can.
This is your life and these are your times. The entire world is your stage. So get into your groove, your rhythm, your dance and take it away to dazzle us, impress and inspire us, win us over and leave us in awe. Sure you can.
With no fear of failure, let our burdens make you brave, let resistance make you resilient, let experience escort you and mistakes be your mentor. With absolute belief in your mettle, your substance, give it your all and reach for the stars and then more. You owe it to yourself and to this world to be the best you can. Yes, my dear, yes you can.
