Please accept our commendation and congratulations on being elected President of the MDC. We would like to share with you and other progressive leaders in the country in general and our Party in particular the Paradoxical commandments of Leadership. As you have traversed and continue to traverse the narrow and lonely road of leadership take heart in the following words of wisdom. You will discover or have already discovered that:
People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centred-
Love them anyway,
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives-
Do good anyway
If you are successful, you will win false and true enemies-
Success anyway
The good you do today will perhaps be forgotten tomorrow-
Do good anyway
Your Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable-
Be honest anyway
The biggest man with the best ideas can be shot down by the smallest man with the smallest mind-
Think big anyway
People favor underdogs but follow only hot dogs-
Fight for a few underdogs anyway
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight
Build anyway
People really need help but may attack you if you help them-
Help them anyway
Give the world the best you have and you get kicked in the teeth-
Give the world the best that you have anyway
If the best is possible, then good is not enough
