Darkening Sorrow veils a Star

The darkening sorrow veils a Star

That waits to shine with gladsome light;

Hell waits on heaven; and after night

Comes golden glory from afar.

Defeats are steps by which we climb

With purer aim to nobler ends;

Loss leads to gain, and joy attends

True footsteps up the hills of time.

Pain leads to paths of holy bliss,

To thoughts and words and deeds divine-,

And clouds that gloom and rays that shine,

Along life’s upward highway kiss.

Misfortune does but cloud the way

Whose end and summit in the sky

Of bright success, sunkissed and high,

Awaits our seeking and our stay.

The heavy pall of doubts and fears

That clouds the Valley of our hopes,

The shades with which the spirit copes,

The bitter harvesting of tears,

The heartaches, miseries, and griefs,

The bruisings born of broken ties,

All these are steps by which we rise

To living ways of sound beliefs.

Love, pitying, watchful, runs to meet

The Pilgrim from the Land of Fate;

All glory and all good await

The coming of obedient feet.

Creating Opportunity by Jim Rohn

An enterprising person is one who comes across a pile of scrap metal and sees the making of a wonderful sculpture. An enterprising person is one who drives through an old decrepit part of town and sees a new housing development. An enterprising person is one who sees opportunity in all areas of life.

To be enterprising is to keep your eyes open and your mind active. It’s to be skilled enough, confident enough, creative enough and disciplined enough to seize opportunities that present themselves… regardless of the economy.

A person with an enterprising attitude says, “Find out what you can before action is taken.” Do your homework. Do the research. Be prepared. Be resourceful. Do all you can in preparation of what’s to come.

Enterprising people always see the future in the present. Enterprising people always find a way to take advantage of a situation, not be burdened by it. And enterprising people aren’t lazy. They don’t wait for opportunities to come to them; they go after the opportunities. Enterprise means always finding a way to keep yourself actively working toward your ambition.

Enterprise is two things. The first is creativity. You need creativity to see what’s out there and to shape it to your advantage. You need creativity to look at the world a little differently. You need creativity to take a different approach, to be different.

What goes hand in hand with the creativity of enterprise is the second requirement: the courage to be creative. You need courage to see things differently, courage to go against the crowd, courage to take a different approach, courage to stand alone if you have to, courage to choose activity over inactivity.

And lastly, being enterprising doesn’t just relate to the ability to make money. Being enterprising also means feeling good enough about yourself, having enough self-worth to want to seek advantages and opportunities that will make a difference in your future. And by doing so, you will increase your confidence, your courage, your creativity and your self-worth—your enterprising nature.
