A Philosophy for Being Human
By Robin Sharma
Go out into this cruel and beautiful world with a heart full of heroism and eyes set to witness the full glory of your powers.
Yes, some seasons will bring misfortune and some times will be hard.
Yet, there is much good in daily life. Neighbors who appreciate you, friends who enliven you and family that adores you.
When it comes to those who wish less than your dreams for you, know they know not what they do. And send them the good wishes that reflect your patience. And the kind understanding that displays your sincere forgiveness.
Work richly and with dignity, giving more than you receive and produce the magic that honours your maker. And respects your genius.
Keep your life simple, as an addiction to acquisition and deep craving for more can stifle your spirit and hurt your good heart.
Enjoy the company of wise people, the companionship of inspiring books and a healthy relationship with your finest self.
When the crowd seeks to make you like them, stay true to your path—leading by your virtues and the values that feel most real to you.
Remain daring, knowing that the meek and timid do not know the soaring flights that come by leaning into your fears. To postpone the life of your ideals is to invite regret into your days.
Remember that terror is closer to triumph than complacency is. And that fear becomes faith when you walk into it.
Enjoy the fruits of your labor and the accolades of your masterwork.
Love gently, respecting all around you and the earth that nourishes you.
Shaani, I do hope that my words above have brought you positivity, solace, strength and comfort.
With love and respect,
