Winning Is Achieved

Winning is Achieved

Somewhere along the line you change

And when things get hard

You start looking for something to blame like a big shadow.

Well, let me whisper something you already know

The world isn’t all sunshine and rainbows

It’s a very mean and nasty place

And I don’t care how tough you are

It will beat you to your knees

And keep you there if you let it

You, me, or nobody is going to hit hard as life

But it isn’t about how hard you hit

It’s about how hard you can hit

About how hard you can hit and keep moving forward

How much you can take and keep moving forward

That’s how winning is achieved

If you know what your worth

Go out and get what your worth

But you’ve got to be willing to take the hits.
