The Script of a Nobel Peace Prize Winner

The way we live our life is based on a script. For example, when I have no urgent matters to attend to I get lazy, but when my plate overflows I shift to hyper mode and get a lot of things done. Not my best script though. Another script is, when I meet a disappointment I took it as a lesson. Finally, when I receive financial blessing I sit aside a small amount for God. A script is a set of concepts that directs our behavior.

The question now is, who taught you your script? The circumstances surrounding you? The people around? The movies you watched or the books you read?

It's important that we based our script from the right sources because our script could make or break us. The script we follow every minute of everyday determines the kind of life we will live. Are you blessed or cursed? Are you at peace with others or at war with the world? Are you building or destroying? Are you loving or hating?

There was once a woman who wrote one of her scripts in the wall of a home for the abandoned children. This script was central to how she became what she was, and what kind of legacy she left behind...


Do It Anyway

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. It was never between you and them anyway.


You must be wondering who this Nobel Peace  Prize laureate is? She is no other than Mother Teresa herself. The writings can be found in the wall of one of the children's home in Calcutta under her care. This is known as The Prayer of Mother Teresa.

Every morning, when we wake up, God hands to us a fresh clean empty sheet of paper.What are we going to write on it? The same old junk we consumed yesterday? Or a script that brings a new ray of hope to our life and to the world? Mother Teresa showed us hers. It's now time to examine ours and write on our wall something that really matters...Is your script patterned from God's will like that of Mother Teresa's?
