Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

Are You Prepared For Success? (Section III - Installment #13 "Persistence” – Male & Female versions)

(If this is your first time on this site, you may want to begin with "Are You Prepared For Success?" [Introduction])

If you are a regular reader of my Empowerment Process please read the Section II version of this poem first; then read this version.


There is nothing to take its place.
Not even with talent, can I make a case.
In this world, it's a common sight,
To have all the talent without the fight.

The brains of a genius, is not what it takes;
It would be nice, little chance for mistakes.
But as I look about, I continue to see
"Un-rewarded genius", a proverb be.

Education will take me only part of the way.
It is important, I will start today.
I am forewarned, as I see all around,
Educated derelicts, a penny a pound.

The most important ingredient in winning, I see,
Is that of persistence, that is the key.
I will never give up, because I wish to rise.
Persistence, more than anything, will win me the prize.

(An Original Poem by Mel Kaye)
I strongly suggest that you write down your immediate reaction, after passionately reading this poem.
  • What current goals will you achieve by being persistent?

Hello again!

This poem is slightly different, "The brains of a genius, is not what it takes;"....

"What currently goals will you achieve by being persistent?" - ooohh, I have a list lol! But I will not bore you with it so I will only name one or two: first, it will lead me to where I always wanted to go and surprisingly enough it is set to take me to a level I never thought I would reach (and all because of my persistence); second, I will have the most gorgeous wedding ceremony in the world LOL (a lot of negotiation involved lol)!!

Mel, this is a great poem (and the previous one too) so I congratulate you!!

Your adoring fan,

I would love to see pictures of your ceremony. It sounds like it will be amazing. However, like me, I have not seen any personal pictures of you or your family on your site. I completely understand anonymity. If I ever posted a picture of my wife or my grown kids, I would never hear the end of it.

"I would love to see pictures of your ceremony." - when the time comes perhaps we can work something out... :)

"However, like me, I have not seen any personal pictures of you or your family on your site. I completely understand anonymity." - oh blog is not that kind of blog.

"If I ever posted a picture of my wife or my grown kids, I would never hear the end of it." - LOL LOL same here! My family would kill me *nodding*!
