People are often unreasonable, irrational, 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 unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.
Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten.
Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.
Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God.
I was never between you and them anyway.

-this version is credited to Mother Teresa


The Story of "Anyway"

The original message was created by Kent Keith for school leaders when he was 19. He has the youthful leadership attitude of "if I don't do it, it won't get done," that is encouraged in Operation Action and Growing Executives of Tomorrow. (link)

Its message traveled far, was enhanced spiritually, and later found as a poster  called "Anyway" in Mother Teresa's children's hospital in Calcutta. When people saw that poster, the message took on a new life and was spread far again.

Dr. Wayne Dyer wrote his book "There's a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem" and featured Mother Teresa's "Anyway" calling it "The Final Analysis." In the  book his main theme was the Prayer of St Francis. He did a popular PBS TV special on the book and the Prayer.  amazon book link  St.Francis Prayer

A song inspired by the "Anyway" spirit is a top 20 song called "Anyway" on the Country Western charts and is sung by Martina McBride,  four time female vocalist of the year. She sang the song on the 2006 CMT Awards show,  which is frequently rebroadcast on CMT TV. The biggest applause of the show was for her performance of this song. It inspires you to build, love, follow your own dream, and sing your own song. 

Experience "Anyway"

The song was released on her album in April 2007. Listen here or view it now and print out your own poster.
