“As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.” ~ Desiderata, Max Erhman
This is the next lines of the poem Desiderata (check out yesterday’s post for the first few lines).
Being on good terms will all persons sure is a tough job if not nearly impossible. We simply cannot please everybody especially on this current competitive times where in most people are fighting for a so-called success where only one person can win. Do we have to step on other people to succeed? Do we really need to become envy of what other people have while we neglect the great things on our hands?
No. We don’t have to. Success is meant to be shared. There is no success sweeter than the success you got from hard work, dedication and a little bit of help from friends. *winks* We seriously gotta get away from that ‘crab mentality’. It is a way of thinking best described by the phrase “if I can’t have it, neither can you.” (wiki) It is like giving all your efforts on bringing another person down whom you think can outsmart you.
Instead of doing such, why not just use all of your energy on learning and mastering your skills? If you got time to scheme something bad against others, you should use that time instead on making a better you. 🙂
Have a great day everyone!
