Mother Teresa 's advice on not letting the world get you down.

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.

-This version is credited to Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa was known for her saintly and compassionate wisdom. This wonderful excerpt is credited to her and it is wisdom that stands the test of time. Take this advise to heart and don’t be discouraged by those who would drag you down. Though the world may try to hinder you, do it anyway.
