If hardwork was the key to success Most Africans would be wealthy I thought I needed to chase dreams Blood. Sweat. And tears. To be successful and happy. Last year, 2015 I learnt my lesson. Success can only be attracted If you chase it, you wont get it When you care about your wellbeing And pay attention to what you are feeling You will get closer to happiness And you will realise that happiness Attracts success. I decided to no longer be a slave to my dreams To care about what my heart, mind & body feels As a result, my dreams Are now coming to me. Mercedes E500 Coupe, AMG sports package Last number, V8 engine Was always my dream Now it belongs to me.
