A promise

It can be hard to let go

When its become all you know,

When the feeling’s become so strong

That you’ve held on for far too long

Then you realise it’s all a test

So you can really be at your best,

So you can beat all that tries to mistreat you,

Then nothing more can ever defeat you

So when this pattern is finally broken,

It is a promise it will all be forsaken

~ M.L.Adams


All within

Sometimes you feel let down then you realise it was yourself

For nothing can be sought without first doing it within yourself

Nothing can be found without first the feeling have been found

That’s what the actions we take really demonstrate

For the outside is only a mirror of the inner causes in life that  we make

~ Miranda. L. Adams

Real Beauty

Listen and look,

Beauty is everywhere

This is what’s real

Just listen, look and feel

Use all your senses

To see what is true and real

Beauty is within and around you,

Its everywhere just waiting

For you to listen to look and to feel

Don’t hide or be afraid

From what is true and beautiful and real

Just open your heart and mind

Its within and all around you,

Just listen, look and feel

~ M.L.Adams

The Will to Win

If you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it, to work day and night for it, to give up your time, your peace and your sleep for it

If all that you dream and scheme is about it and life seems useless and worthless without it

If you gladly sweat  for, fret for and plan for it  and lose all your terror of the opposition for it

 If you simply go after that thing that you want with all of your capacity, strength and sagacity, faith, hope and confidence and stern for tenacity 

If neither cold or poverty, famish or gout, sickness or pain of body and brain can keep you away from the thing that you want 

If dogged and grim you be size and beget it, with the help of GOD you will get it.

~ Berton Braley

I heard this poem recited by Les Brown at the recent Success 2013 seminar in London, I was really struck by it, not just because of the dynamism of Les Brown but also the truth and power in these words. Les Brown before finishing his speech with this poem told us all the story of how he achieved what he has to date. The words in this poem describe just how he did it, equally so for all those who have risen to the top and inspire us greatly. The journey they go through to get there, all the hard work and effort is often missed or looked over, we can then hold them in this higher or better place that seems unreachable, but actually through their words and actions many of these highly successful and inspirational figures are teaching us exactly how to do it and that with enough focus and persistence anyone can. Here’s to winning, believe you can 🙂

Words of Wisdom from an Icon

Classic wisdom and beautiful words..

Welcome to David Nair's blog

Beautiful, simple words of wisdom from a noble prize winner…. Mother Teresa.

I was going through the Biography of Mother Teresa, and could not go past this passage. Felt the need to share with those who would not have had the privilege of reading the works of this lady.

I found this little passage great to reflect on ….. Be enlightened, find inner peace & serenity, and hope it can help some out there in a similar way. 

It is amazing how the switch takes place within each of us by the second. When we are well grounded with steadfast principles that we could hang on to  nothing will swing it either way. Enjoy the extract ……….


“People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centred ; 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 false…
