People - By Mother Theresa

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centred;
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, they 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.

Mother Theresa.

The Winners Creed

I am a fighter.  Every problem in life, using the brain and instinct for survival that was passed on to me by countless generations of ancestors, a genetic gift, my inheritance.

I am a winner.  Because I REFUSE to accept defeat.  I can only be defeated if I give up, which I never shall.  Every success makes me stronger.  Every experience makes me wiser.  Every fight gives me another chance to win.  And I enjoy winning.

To the timid, the approaching battles look worse than to the fighter.  It is magnified by fear, but reduced and overcome by courage.

I begin and finish a winner, because I know that all I have to do is stay and keep fighting, - until I tire out the opposition.  That is the rule of persistence and determination - that the last man on his feet is the winner.  Merely being prepared and ready to fight is my greatest asset.

I shall always strive to be a winner.
