Anyway, Do It Anyway, by Kent M. Keith

  • 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 will get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.


  • Dr. Kent M. Keith is an inspirational speaker and author who helps people find personal meaning in a crazy world.

    Sometime life is a bitter, enjoy anyway!

    Jade Meng said...

    True. If we find personal meaning, we can enjoy life at any situation.

    You can't achieve anything if you do nothing.. ^_^

    Jade Meng said...

    Yes, you can't achieve anything if you are distracted by petite-minded people.

    Revenanti said...

    well.. Petite minded people are a distraction.. But I think, a man's worst enemy is his own self.. Like the feeling of self pity, underestimating one's self, laziness, fear, traumas, temptation, etc. Once you overcome most of these problems with yourself and focus on things that can be most worthy and must be done and right prioritizing, a man can do well and achieve great things..

    "A man's worst enemy is himself."

    Well-said, "A man's worst enemy is himself." When you have a clear purpose of life, a wise plan and inner firmness, you can persevere on your journey and achieve great things, not disturbed by other people.

    It is better to be a builder than a destroyer; it is better to be a doer than a jabber.
