Insights From The Leadership Whisperer

Wise Words I Live By

I wanted to share this beautiful poem of simple truths. I use it as a constant reflection in my own personal and professional life, I hope you enjoy it too…

Way of Life of Mother Teresa of Calcutta

People are often unreasonable, illogical, And self centred:

Forgive them anyway!

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives:

Be kind anyway!

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies:

Succeed anyway!

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you:

Be honest and frank anyway!

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;

Build anyway!

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;

Be happy anyway!

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;

Do good anyway!

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;

Give the world the best you’ve got anyway!

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;

It was never between you and them anyway!
