Roses of Success


Some time ago, I saw “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”, United Artists, 1968. 

It was an excellent lesson on perseverance and persistence.

Mr. Potts, was an inventor, none of his inventions, worked like he planned; but he kept inventing.

Grandpa Potts was not an inventor,but he was kidnapped by mistake.

When the King, who kidnapped grandpa Potts, ordered Grandpa to make a car that floats, grandpa replied, “impossible.”

This was the answer from the King’s make it happen guys.

Every bursting bubble has a glory.

Each abysmal failure makes a point.

Every glowing path that goes astray

shows you how to find –a better way

So every time you stumble, never grumble

Next time you’ll bumble even less

Up from the ashes, up from the ashes

grow the roses of success

from the ashes of disaster grow

the roses of success

For every big mistake you make be greatful

that mistake you’ll never make again

Every shiny dream that fades and dies

generates the steam for two more tries

There’s magic in the wake of a fiasco

it gives you that chance to second guess

Up from the ashes, up from the ashes

grow the roses of success

Disaster didn’t stimey Louie Pasteur

Edison took Years to see the light

Alexander Graham knew failure well

he took a lot of knocks to ring that bell

So when you get distressing its a blessing

onward and upward you must press

Up from the ashes, up from the ashes

grow the roses of success

The roses of success are the dreams that keep us working toward the goal despite failure or disaster.

Resilience and perseverance are character traits that all young people should develop. These traits can be instilled with genuine encouragement and gentle critique. Please take a moment to engage and encourage the youth in world.
