Seven Secrets of Success

Roof said : Aim high
Fan said : Be cool
Clock said : Every minute is precious
Mirror said : Reflect before you act
Window said : See the world
Calendar said : Be up-to-date
Door said : Push hard to achieve your goal

‘If you aspire ever
to touch the sky,’
said the roof, ‘just aim high.’

‘To achieve that,’
advised the noisy fan,
the thumb rule, you need to be cool.’

‘Added to that you need to work,’
said the clock, appearing very anxious,
‘for every minute is precious.’

‘Mind is a flow of thoughts',
opined the mirror, 'be clever and smart,
do reflect before you act.’

See the world, from north to south,
and east to west,’ said the window,
being genuinely earnest.

‘Past and future have no roles.
In my humble opinion,’ the Calendar was honest,
Please be up-to-date.’

‘Well, all said and done,’
declared the red wood door,
Push hard,’ my dear, ‘to achieve your goal.’
 
(Based on an interesting forward by Hema Ravi. An aspirant found the answers in his room.)
