Do It Anyway

I came across this poem by Mother Theresa (a revised version of The Paradoxical Commandments by Kent M. Keith), and thought I’d pass it along since we can all use a little inspiration in our day.

People are often unreasonable, illogical 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 false friends and true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

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

What you spend years building could be destroyed overnight;
Build anyway.

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

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt;
Give the world your best anyway.

Here's the way I see it: Try your best in everything you do. Even if you don't succeed, you'll be happy you tried your hardest. We promise to give you our best and look forward to being your partner in business success.
