That's Success                                                                                                   
It's doing your job the best you can
And being just to your fellow man;
It's figuring how and learning why
And dreaming a little and doing much.
It's keeping always in closest touch
With what is finest in word and deed;
It's being thorough, yet making speed;
It's going onward despite defeat
And fighting stanchly, but keeping sweet;
It's being clean and it's playing fair;
It's laughing lightly at Dame Despair;
It's struggling on with the will to win
But taking loss with a cheerful grin;
It's serving, striving through strain and stress;
It's doing your noblest -- that's Success!
