Joann’s success would come soon after her first of many book releases of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Failure is a thing in the past,
Although many may differ,
There are ones who succeeded,
Despite what’s around us,
Success is everywhere,
When you see failure,
It’s a obstacle to be defeated,
We cannot allow what’s in front of us,
To be the defining factor of who we are,
We can all achieve success,
Everyone can do that.
