A Monday Poem from Robin Sharma

Why chase perfection when your joy loves progress?
Why seek to be liked by the mass when too many within it don’t like themselves?
Why aim to fit in when the game is to be a standout?
Why wish for easier times when it’s the hard ones that make you strong?

To turn trials into triumph.
To make failure into fortune.
To change wounds into wisdom. 
To reform walls into windows.
Such are the things that make humans.
Happier.

So as the hours of your life advance.
As the months slip away.
As the years become decades.
As the clock ticks each day.

Walk the earth gently.
Care for the planet carefully.
Honor your values ferociously.
Protect your ambitions enthusiastically.
Celebrate your friends passionately.
Hold your family closely.
Guard great health excellently.
And be helpful to many, daily.

Do this.
And.
You’ll.
Become.
Magic.
And a whole lot.
Happier.
