"Do It Anyway" poem by Mother Teresa

with 2 comments

Over two years ago, I posted this poem by Mother Teresa, and today I encountered this poem again through DZ. Ideas and questions that come back to you again and again may mean something worth pursuing, this is a sign from the nature / God for me.

Do It Anyway

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. 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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

Life skills for success

leave a comment »

From May Lee, TV journalist and talk show host.

She is a Korean American.
She claimed that an Asian child never forgets RESPECT, HARD WORK, DISCIPLINE.
I found that her writing tone is authoritative, direct, yet truthful.

“I was doing an interview, some men started making racist comments. I confronted them angrily, saying the world had enough racists, so they should think twice before opening their mouths. They fell silent”.
May Lee feels strongly about standing up for JUSTICE even if it means putting herself at risk.

Use your connection, to gain access to RIGHT people.

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED. Her 10-day diving holiday with no communication seemed 1st disastrous to her career but turned out to be a blessing.

You can win over people with TRUST and RESPECT.
May Lee said her biggest scoop at Oxygen Media was Monica Lewinsky.

Get the job done (even if your colleagues are irresponsible).

Push yourself to LEARN new skills. You will thank yourself later.

I love her list of things to give up to be happy.
1. no need to always be right. Blueroselady believes that it is more important to be kind than being right.
2. no need for control.
3. no need to blame others. This way, Blueroselady does not give her power away.
4. eliminate limiting beliefs.
5. no need to complain. Blueroselady is a habitual optimistic who always think positively day and night.
6. no need to criticize (things / events / people).
7. no need to impress others.
8. no need to resist change. Blueroselady embraces change.
9. no fear. See Blueroselady’s tips on how to overcome fear.
10. no excuses.
11. no living my life to other people’s expectations. Blueroselady responds to her inner calling.
May Lee said “You have one life – this one right now – you must live it, own it, and especially don’t let other people’s opinions distract you from your path.”
