• Paradoxical Commandments

    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 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, people 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 God;
    It was never between you and them anyway

  • Failure

    How you manage failure and difficulty will determine how well you succeed.

  • Resistance

    What you most resist doing or changing is the very thing you most need to work on.

  • How to stay high?

    You will never stay low if your thoughts are high and never stay high if your thoughts are low.  Always remember that you can decide what you want to think about and that you will never rise higher than your highest thoughts.

  • Become Sincere

    Your concern should be to become sincere, not whether or not you are sincere.
