The experience of your mind is the experience of your life!

Let this woman inspire you

Let this woman inspire you

Genuine leaders walk their talk. Genuine leaders don’t care about acknowledgements and awards. They create more leaders, not followers.

Mother Teresa was such a leader. An incredibly noble woman who put others’ first. She was and still is a powerful example to us all.

When I found this quote from her, I felt to forward it on…

 


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 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.


 

What Mother Teresa is asking of us in these lines is far from easy. If we can apply even 5% of it, we will contribute to a kinder world. In her own words:

“Not all of us can do great things.
But we can do small things with great love.”

 

With an inspired heart,
Swami Mukti

P.S. Please share the inspiration around.

Fear of the unknown

Fear of the unknown

At the beginning of our lives ignorance is a comfort. We are accustomed to the way we are and how we perceive life … we simply don’t know anything else; things are “as they should be”. However, that comfort isn’t a constant— life itself will begin sending us hints of something more. A child who… Keep Reading
