What It Takes To Become A Winner

Updated on June 19, 2016

Let Positive Songs and Surroundings Drive You

Fan Support, Endurance and Participation

I have been writing songs since the age of fourteen. I had admired the superb songwriting of William (Smokey) Robinson who wrote continual hits for his own singing group (The Miracles) and The Temptations as well as other top Motown singers and groups. I took up private music courses from time to time until I started playing various musical instruments. Eventually, I started doing studio recording sessions and programing electronic drums. I have been rewarded for services rendered of my talents. I believe that makes me a winner. There are people out there to slow down your drive but you need to incorporate the mental tools to shift in overdrive at those times. Keep yourself full of mental and physical strength. Open-mindedness and knowledge as much as the mind can perceive leads to having great wisdom to achieve goals. Last but not least be loving and be more loving. Keep on reading here.

Poem To Hub Pages

Like the support and following

Of those who do and do not compete,

Winners should rely on

All the people they meet,

The winner must be good.

That is the bottom line truth

Now the Hub Community

Is needed from its eldest to its youth,

It takes the whole community

To help me win this contest

My whole life of songwriting music

Is now, being put to the test,

Now all of you can see

That the main side of my life

Is designed to help through song

The Lord’s way out of strife,

I have never asked anyone,

Let alone a community

To support my music endeavor

Cause we are unity,

Music shall be the key

To free us when we are lost,

It inclines us to unwind

After paying the cost,

The freedom of glory music

Should never be denied

But heard, felt and danced to

Should always be tried,

I admire you Hub Pages,

(Community of writing friends)

Come out from in the cages

And stay with me through all the trends.


It takes but not limited to being in tiptop shape, faith from God in yourself, positivity, focus/concentration, diligence and craftiness to meet the appreciation of a champion.
