“Culture Change”

We’ll take this journey one step at a time,
Who among you is prepped for the grind?
If our mindset is team first then the dream works.
Know things will get better even when they seem worse.

The victory is not in the grief,
Conceive men, because achievement is a plot of belief.
Together we must eliminate the amount of bull,
Have tremendous attendance and all be accountable.

As we aim for the target we won’t miss again.
The ingredients for success are obedience and discipline.
Every lad knows the path and it’s a forever bond,
To get something you’ve never had, you have to do things you’ve never done.

The only way that weakness can convert to strong,
Is if you get outside of your comfort zone.
Just as scavenging is the vulture’s game,
Challenging is a culture change.
