If Excellence is Within Reach, then Good is not Good Enough: Never Give Up.
By: Jamal Archer

Why so harshly do we judge are brothers and sisters who fall by the wayside?

Life for some is not as favorable as what may seem to be common to ‘the arrived bunch’

Tossing in the towel after bad decisions and countless disappointments are what separates success from failure.

Persistence and the lack of a will to continue is what separates the legendary from the forgotten.

Do you know of a wrestler who won a match without first getting in the fight?

How far can you drive your success if you don’t first fuel your engine?

The journey called ‘Life’ is a series of conditions and choices, where the victory of our lives are determined in our secret places as opposed to our ‘spot light’ experiences.

We measure the value of others by the personal wealth and academic prosperity we have achieved.

To be inspired by a great man is a good thing, but to create great men through your inspiration is a prestigious accomplishment.

  1. These words sound as if they are directly from the heart. I’m not sure that even King David could have matched this psalm. In it I feel your pain, your passion and your hope, and it is all inspirational. ~what a beautiful post~

  2. First off thank´s for passing by my crazy un paid blog.
    You couldn´t be more right about tossing the towel after a failure, and I love the last sentence “To be inspired by a great man is a good thing, but to create great men through your inspiration is a prestigious compliment.”
    I would also say that in order to succed and not be a failure it is much more easier if you have a foundation, and that foundation comes when you are young.

    Great blog you have here, happy I found you.

    P.S. You should also add in the title “Perspective on religion and culture by a successful black man” you should add “successful-wise”, but yet again one thing probably follows the other.

    • Thank you Charlie, your words are inspiring. I am also glad you enjoyed the read. Charlie when we meet God and we experience His salvation He provides us with a new foundation, I know because he made me a new creature. Thanks again Charlie I look forward to checking out your blog again and I hope you enjoy more of my writings.
