Words of wisdom — Mother Teresa.

Beautiful, simple words of wisdom from a noble prize winner…. Mother Teresa.

I was going through the Biography of Mother Teresa and could not go past this passage and felt the need to share it with many who would not have had the privilege of reading the works of this lady.

A little passage great to reflect on …. Be enlightened.

It is amazing how the switch takes place within each of us by the second. When we are well-grounded with steadfast Principles and Core Values that we could hang on to, such that nothing will swing it either way.

Enjoy the extract ……….

“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.” — Mother Teresa

Reflect on this and be your best….

Be Happy for what you do and contribute, for this world to be a better place.
