"The Paradoxical Commandments"


Sunday, December 01, 2013




"The Paradoxical Commandments"

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

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

If you are successful, you will 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 men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot
down by the smallest men and women 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 people anyway.

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

    Great blog. The only one I disagree with is the one that says if you do good, people will accuse you of ulterior movies. When you do the right thing, because it is the right thing to do. A selfish insecure person may think you have another motive, cause in their world it's doggie dog. There are two types of people: the selfish/powerful/ manipulator verses the powerless/ peaceful/ trusting innocent dears in the head lights. So, they assume you are trying to show them up, and belittle them. eva emoticon

    You should always do what's right - sometimes you will be appreciated or other times rebuked. Still, do what you know is right!
