Birds and aeroplanes fly,
But they take off from the ground first.
Anyone who starts from 10,000ft already has a parachute,
You can bet your bottom dollar on that.
When you're going up, trust your foundations.

Every successful career started somewhere.
True, some started a little higher up than others,
Some always had parachutes too.
But some careers also took off from the ground,
And some of these people flew as long and as high as anyone else ever did.
Thanks to these people, I know for a fact,
That not starting from 10,000ft and not having a parachute,
Doesn't have to keep anyone on the ground.
