You want something real bad you work real hard;
You know you have to give your everything to reach that because nothing is ever given without sacrifice;
You climb every ladder til you reach the last ladder;
You sacrifice every effort because is all you ever wanted;
Yet is sad when you know you’ve tried everything;
If you depended on someone else to give their very best, be ready to risk it all because they might not give it all;
I learned the hard way to always give my best because if I rely on someone else to give me their best I’ll probably get less than what I expect.

    You've captured the notion very well. Sometimes our best amounts to nothing if we rely on external forces.
