Success is only a milestone. It’s an indicator a goal is accomplished. So, always remain teachable and open to learn because LIFE is a journey of endless possibilities. When you think you have arrived, then, you’ve limited your possibilities of accomplishing more.

The Final Destination


Always galloping-

trying to reach the destination.

Often turning corners-

attempting to make the journey at ease.

Stepping high, taking quick strides,

and speed trotting-

but it seems at times,

moving forward is like moving backwards.

Gaining speed is like moving too slow.

You’re always aiming to get there,

always trying to get it right,

always thinking limiting all

the wrongs would work.

But whether it’s all in stride,

running free, or lagging behind-

keeping it moving,

reaching the end

 is always a few miles away-

getting there is the race.

In a Good Place


When you’re in a “good place”

you’re at your best.

You take things as they come and go.

You don’t “sweat the small things.”

Even if you do,

you’ve learned how to handle them and move forward.

Simply, you refuse to become a caretaker of grudges

or a conduit for drama.

In other words, you’ve learned to adapt to

and overcome situations

not nurture them.


When you’re in a “good place,”

it’s a place of contentment.

It’s not a final or desired  place of destination,

it’s a place to pause and get your bearings.

The “good place” is a place of knowing no matter what-

this soon will pass.

In this state, you possess a sense of peace regardless of

what transpires around you.

You feel childlike and carefree.


A “good place” is good.

‘It’s not a destination,

it’s part of the journey

for the soul.

`Yvonne L.



Success is Always Waiting



I’m Success…

I’m on the other side waiting for you.

Just stick to your goals.

Yes, there are distractions along the journey.

You might get discouraged and face some obstacles.


Just keep moving towards me,

I’m waiting right here.

While on your way,

here are some suggestions, if I may…

Keep your focus.

Have a clear plan.

Prioritize, organize, and push your way.

Trust me when I say,

the struggle gets easier day by day.


But, in the end,

one valuable thing you can do,

be persistent,

it’s well worth your time.

Trust me,

I’m Success,

I should know.


If you don’t mind me offering you advice,

it may take a little time getting here,

please understand when you arrive,

although you did with diligence and

determination, be assured,  I’m not

a final destination.

There’s always more room for you,

there’s more levels for you to explore.
