Strategies to Take Control of Your Life

Raul Dinzey

  • Visualizing a better tomorrow

  • Persisting through your challenges

  • Taking action

Life you get what you ask for

Life—You Get What you Ask For

I bargained with life for a penny

And life would pay no more

However I begged at evening

When I counted my scanty store.

For life is a just employer

He gives you what you ask

But once you have set the wages

You must bear the task.

I worked for a menial’s hire,

Only to learn dismayed

That any wage I had asked of life,

Life would have willingly paid.
