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

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

If you are successful,
you 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 persons
with the biggest ideas
can be shot down
by the smallest persons
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 them anyway.

Give the world the best you have
and you' may get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway. 2


If you are kind,
people may accuse you of selfish,
ulterior motives and agendas;
be kind anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
be honest
and frank anyway.

People are often unreasonable,
illogical,
and self-centered;
forgive them anyway.

You see,
in the final analysis,
it is between you and God;
it was never between you
and them anyway. 3

There was always some obstacle
in the way of
my “life”.

It dawned on me
that these obstacles
were my life! 4

Necessity is not the main motivator to get in gear.
Refusing to accept things as they are,
is the main motivator for getting off your duff. 5

Those who say that you can’t step in the same river twice have it wrong;
the river does not change – only the water does.
Just as we can step in that old river as many times as we like,
where only the water is different and changed; not the river itself,
we can at any time, in the river of our lives, return to any place in it,
renewed with different inner water - changed -
and make a new beginning toward a different outcome.

It is neither ever impossible, nor too late
to make a new beginning for a new ending.

I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet,
simple things of life which are the real ones after all. 6

Today is the first day of the rest of your life
  Making our dreams come true
and leading a fulfilling life)
is often more about letting go
than taking any grand action.


When we have the courage
to let go of anything standing in our way
--and that includes the dreams we could make come true
(if we worked hard enough),
those we think we
"should" make come true,
or any other distraction taking our energy —
and choose instead to honor the unique dream
our soul wants more than anything in the world,
life becomes magical.

Letting the rest all fall away,
the light from within guides us home!

– and for you to be “
You”. 1
