So called ‘late-bloomers’ get a bad rap. Sometimes the people with the greatest potential often take the longest to find their path because their sensitivity is a double edged sword- it lives at the heart of their brilliance, but it also makes them more susceptible to life’s pains. Good thing we aren’t being penalized for handing in our purpose late. The soul doesn’t know a thing about deadlines.
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
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;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
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.
If you love what you do, then you are very close to being a perfectly happy man. If it can pay the bills, even better.
"A person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing.
All we know about the future is that it will be different, but perhaps what we fear is that it will be the same. So we must celebrate the changes, because as someone once said, everything will be alright in the end, and if it’s not alright, it’s not yet the end.”
When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.
