Our character is constantly challenged bythose who would seek to benefit from the misfortune of others, by those who’s self interest trumps common sense, by those who do not wish us well.
How we choose to respond to thepeople who would chip away at ourethical armor either strengthens or weakens us. It all comes down to doing the right thing.
Doing the right thing isn’t always easy. Sometimes, it’s hard to know whatthe right thing is. Your heart will usually point you in the right direction. Listen to it, feel the fear and do the right thing anyway.
Contemplate all feedback. Integratewhat is useful and let go of the rest. And be careful when you judge. We are all imperfect people struggling with our own demons. Righteousness is always clear in the rear view mirror.
Be prepared. You will betested. Remove yourself from the unacceptable. Keep speaking up until you are heard. Keeppushing until you begin to effect change.
Nobody is perfect. If you do thewrong thing, and you will, makeit right as soon as possible. Badjudgment isn’t a problem, until it becomes a pattern.
People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway!!!
If you are kind, people mayaccuse 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 sincere people may deceive you. Behonest and sincere anyway!!!
The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be shotdown by the smallest people with the smallest minds; Think big anyway!!!
People favor underdogs, but follow only top dogs. Fight for underdogs anyway!!!
What you spend years building up may bedestroyed overnight. Build anyway!!!
People really needhelp, but will attackyou if you help them.Help them anyway!!!
If you find serenityand happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway!!!
The good youdo today, will be forgottentomorrow. Dogood anyway!
Give the world the best you have and it may kick you inthe teeth. Give the world the best you’ve got anyway!!!
Our ultimate destiny is determined by our daily deeds, especiallythose things we do when nobody else is watching. It’s easy to talk the talk. It’s much harder to walk the walk.
Have compassion for the weaknesses of others, but model and expectaccountability. History proves, again and again, that not doing what is right in pursuit of personal achievement ultimately leads to self destruction.
Ponder all of this now, before you are tested. “Wisdom,” writes David Star Jordan, “is knowing what to do next;virtue is doing it.” Do the right thing!!! Thank You Very Much Sompong Yusoontorn
