Guts, Determination Blood Sweat and Tears

Guts, Determination Blood Sweat and Tears 
Who can say they have not used that combination
That is the combination that makes famous people, heroes and idles  
What is the difference between famous people, heroes, idles and you 
The amount of followers 

Let’s look at a famous people/ heroes/ idles

They have the guts to do something different 
They have the determination to do it the best they can 
They have hurt themselves for what they believe in 
They have cried when it all went wrong 
 They have raised a sweat just to get it right 

I want you to look at your life 
Through the eyes of your family 

You have the guts to make your family get out of bed 
You have the determination to help your family be better than you 
You have lost blood for each member of your family  
You have sweated your butt off to ensure comfort for your family 
You have shed a tear more than once for you family 

Why do we like famous people, heroes and idles  
Because they do something better than we can 
They make what they do look easy 
Famous people give us ideas, dreams and hope
But most of all 
Famous people, heroes and idles are people that we admire 

You have become a master at what you do 
Day by day you give love 
Day by day you give hope 
Day by day you share dreams 
Month after month your kids keep coming back to you 

With out knowing what you have done 
You have year after year 
Created a hero for your kids to idolize 
You have given advice to your friends 
You have shown kindness
You always manage to give away a smile when it is most needed
You have had a positive effect on others as well

You are: 
My Idol
My Hero 
My famous person
