To be a success in life, you must work long and hard.
The days will be endless and the burden great.
Many times you will stumble, and sometimes fall,
It is hard to attain great success, and easy to lose it.

The staircase is steep and is a challenge to climb.
You will perspire as you toil onwards,
Upon reaching the top, you may fall down,
Since falling is easier than rising.

Success will be gained through experiences in life
And never through lying or cheating.
For you will either fail or achieve great things,
And success is what you make it to be.
