Do it ANYWAY – Paradoxical Commandments!

This beautiful piece has been attributed to Mother Teresa but the real author is Kent M. Keith.

Some of you may have read it earlier, but I stumbled upon it again on Micheal Hyatt’s blog last evening and thought it is worth sharing with you:

People are illogical, unreasonable,
and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will
accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you
will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will
be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make
you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank
anyway.

The biggest men and women
with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the
smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but
follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few
underdogs anyway.

What you spend years
building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but
may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you
have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the
best you have anyway.

Have a happy life!
