The Paradoxical Commandments

Understand I absolutely love my job. It can be very rewarding,but there is another side to it. When I find myself becoming extremely frustrated with a particular client or listening to someone give me excuse after excuse as to why they cannot accomplish the most simple of task’s I do find myself thinking “ Why bother. They know the consequences of the choices they are making,why should I care “.Then i remember the concept of “Anyway”. The Paradoxical Commandments were written in 1968 by Kent Keith and are contained in a book called AnyWay.
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.

I truly believe this is what keeps me going. One small victory can offset numerous losses.
Bottom Line: Be who you are. Be honest . Always look for the little “W’s” to put in the win column . Go around,over or under the negativity but never try to go thru it. That just takes to much energy.
