People are illogical, unreasonable and self-centred. Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway. These commandments were first written down by Kent M. Keith for student leaders in the 1960s. Over the following years, they spread via word-of-mouth and became greatly valued – adopted by people far and wide.
Now, for the first time, Keith’s inspiring commandments appear in this life-changing book, with each principle illustrated with inspiring stories from his own life, as well as classic examples from history. They offer a way of living far removed from the lifestyle that strives for the popular symbols of success: wealth, power and fame. Instead, these ten rational principles focus on the enriching personal meaning that comes through living our lives selflessly and without recognition.
Through accepting the Paradoxical Commandments and the paradoxical life, we are each truly free to be who we are really meant to be.
