Do It Anyway!
People are unreasonable, illogical, 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 people with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest people with the smallest minds. – Think big anyway!
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. – Fight for an underdog anyway!
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. – Build anyway!
People that really need help often attack you if you help them. – Help people anyway!
Give the world the best you’ve got and you’ll get kicked in the teeth. – Give your best anyway!

Think about it and give it your best shot.
