by Belinda Correa — In simple terms, I have arrived at some conclusions based in part on my life experience, that people in general including children and friends are basically unreasonable, illogical and self centered. Yet I have decided to have patience and even love them if possible.
If I do good these same people will accuse me of ulterior motives.. I plan to do good anyways.
When I am successful, I suspect that I will win false friends and true enemies.. I plan to succeed anyways.
I recognize that honesty and frankness will make me vulnerable.. I plan to be honest and speak what is on my mind anyway.
The kindness that I have shown and that which I do today will be forgotten tomorrow.. I plan to be kind anyway.
The biggest and brightest ideas, plans and goals I make can and will be shot down by the smallest of people with the smallest minds.. I plan to think big anyway.
I recognize that people favor the underdogs.. but I will only follow the top dogs. Being a top dog in an underdog position myself.. I plan to fight for the underdog!
I can give the world the best I have and can still get kicked in the ass.. I plan to give the World the best I have anyway.
