...a little bit about my unconquerable soul


Happy New Year! 

It is 2016 already, wow! Today is my first day at the office and its been cleaning and renovations, and I find myself on my laptop going over emails, so I decided to share with you guys a little about my unconquerable soul.

Many may know, but quite a bunch of you also do not have an idea where my zeal and inspiration for wanting to succeed and forever working hard to stay successful comes from. Today i'll let it all out in just one sentence. 

My impoverished and poor childhood has been the major source of my strength and inspiration to create generational wealth that will conquer that epidemic called poverty. 

Okay now that the secret is out, let me share with you a poem that is my backbone from day one, i discovered this poem at 16, shortly after leaving home and became 100% independent. It is called "Invictus". It was written by an English poet and critic by name William Ernest Henley. He had gone through a very terrible health situation coupled with an impoverished childhood and other tribulations, all these experiences had forced him to write this master piece. I love this poem so much that I have tattoo'd same stanzas of the poem on my skin (Yes I have tattoos, quite a few actually hehe). Here's a copy of the poem:

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me, 
Black as the Pit from pole to pole, 
I thank whatever gods may be 
For my unconquerable soul. 

In the fell clutch of circumstance 
I have not winced nor cried aloud. 
Under the bludgeonings of chance 
My head is bloody, but unbowed. 

Beyond this place of wrath and tears 
Looms but the Horror of the shade, 
And yet the menace of the years 
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid. 

It matters not how strait the gate, 
How charged with punishments the scroll, 
I am the master of my fate: 
I am the captain of my soul.

I hope that you too have been inspired by this master piece. Share it with friends and family anytime you want to inspire somebody.

Now i'm off to get some lunch.

Cheers
#Invictus
