What Really Matters


Life itself is a journey after all, and what matters most is not what you are getting, but who you are becoming.

– From The Secret Letters of the Monk who sold his Ferrari by Robin Sharma




We have what it takes

To be victorious.

We just need to remind ourselves

With this truth.

And believe it with all our hearts.

Persevere as if quitting

Is never an option.

Acknowledge that the journey itself

Is a great challenge.

Nevertheless, it is a challenge

That we can overcome.

True character is revealed

When circumstances do not favor us

Yet we bloom out of season.

Kris Ancog


The transparency of our thoughts

And the purity of our motivations

Bring definition of our actions.

Everyone can do good things

But only those who act

In truth and love

Are able to lift our spirits,

Move our souls,

And even touch those hearts

That have been turned into stones.

Kris Ancog




To be exceptional

Is to be basic

And embrace the ordinary



To be strong

Is not to do something

In the season of waiting



To be authentic

Is to say no

And avoid resentment



To have faith

Is to be quiet

And speak through actions



To gain victory

Is to rise

After falling many times



To be joyful

Is to let the tears fall

And not hold on too tightly



To be rich

Is to appreciate what you have

Rather than having some more



To be successful

Is to stop trying

And develop healthy striving



To be the best

Is to be imperfect

And still believe that you are enough
