This one must have been written when I was trying to give myself a pep talk. I don't really have quite that kind of personality. Maybe you think it sound more like our current President.



BORN TO WIN

c2017 Brian Beecher


A magnetic pulse puts me in supercharge mode
Folks come to me because I can deal with the load
The ability to understand
What radiates from folks is my master plan
To make life grand

Yes I was born to win
To stay ahead of the pack
Concentrate on looking forward never looking back
The need to be fee is my biggest sin
Going the extra mile I was born to win

What comes from othersí action is my super power
And itís gratifying when I see my efforts flower
Others envy, who could ask for more
Yet Iím always aiming for a higher score
What Iím living for

Yes I was born to win
To stay ahead of the pack
Concentrate on looking forward never looking back
The need to be free is my biggest sin
Going the extra mile I was born to win

If you want success first you need to learn the skill
To pay attention to the power of your own free will
Remember that it begins with one
One action, one cause, one source under the sun
Just go and get it done

Yes I was born to win
To stay ahead of the pack
Concentrate on looking forward never looking back
The need to be free is my biggest sin
Going the extra mile I was born to win

I like this. Definitely a different spin in attitude than I normally hear. One thing that came to me was to change one word that (in my mind) summed up the singer's mentality. As with all my suggestions, take it or chuck in in the incinerator...ha ha.

"The need to be free is my biggest sin" to "The need to be needed is my biggest sin."

Just Plain Quotes
"A lot of people will tell you that preparation is what will make you successful. But I think that people misunderstand exactly what that means sometimes. The type of preparation you need most is the kind that allows you to instantly seize an opportunity, change your course based on a momentary circumstance, and grab hold of the totally unexpected when it happens, and allow it to take you for the ride of your life! That is the kind of preparation that can lead to the most enjoyable type of success." -Brian Austin Whitney
